The discovering of the Gospel of Judas Iscariot was major news, but what was its practical effect? How does it change our understanding of Judas? Does its content confirm or contradict other Christian texts? Does it change what we know about Jesus and about the beginnings of Christianity?

The leading authority on this gospel, early church historian Bart Ehrman, offers the first complete account of the discovery it and illuminates the significance of this remarkable ancient text.

Ehrman describes how he first saw the Gospel of Judas—surprisingly, in a small room above a pizza parlor in a Swiss town near Lake Geneva—and he recounts the fascinating story of where and how this ancient papyrus document was discovered, how it moved around among antiquities dealers in Egypt, the United States, and Switzerland, and how it came to be restored and translated. More important, Ehrman gives the reader a complete and clear account of what the book teaches and he shows how it relates to other Gospel texts—both those inside the New Testament and those outside of it, most notably, the Gnostic texts of early Christianity. Finally, he describes what we now can say about the historical Judas himself as well as his relationship with Jesus, suggesting that one needs to read between the lines of the early Gospels to see exactly what Judas did and why he did it.

The Gospel of Judas presents an entirely new view of Jesus, his disciples, and the man who allegedly betrayed him. It raises many questions and Bart Ehrman provides illuminating and authoritative answers, in a book that will interest anyone curious about the New Testament, the life of Jesus, and the history of Christianity after his death.

    " Pretty good book. Not too long but academic in its nature. Author does a good job explaining the book for the lay audience but ultimately sheds little light on early Christian thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Virginia Bee | 1/16/2014

    " Fascinating comparison of how the four gospels viewed Jesus and Judas. Good discription of Agnostism. "

    " If you are curious about this gospel, I'd recommend the Pagels book on the Gospel of JI. "
