Gospel of Judas

Posted: February 28, 2012 in Uncategorized

The Gospel of Judas is a gnostic gospel that was recently discovered. It is believed to have been discovered by a farmer who was looking around in caves in Egypt for special artifacts that could be sold for decent value. Rather than being written by Judas himself, it is believed to have been written by early Gnostic Christians, dating around 280 AD. Rather than portraying Judas as the betrayer of Christ and the ‘ultimate sinner’, this gospel portrays him as following Christ’s orders in order to fulfill prophecy. Gnostic skeptics believe that Judas served Jesus in order to release his soul from its physical form.  The Gospel of Judas teaches that Jesus did not teach the true Gospels to any of the disciples but Judas Iscariot, who was thought to be Jesus’ most trusted disciple.

This Gospel has been met with much controversy by modern non-gnostic Religious groups. It dis-agrees with many of the teachings of the Bible.
