Overview

The discovery of Judas’s Gospel has caused great controversy among biblical scholars, and in this detailed work, two experts of the Gnostic gospels approach many questions resulting from this important find. How could a Christian imagine that Judas, the traitor, was Jesus’s favorite? Why is the author of this gospel full of anger towards the other disciples? What vision of God does the author offer? The answers to these questions introduce Christianity’s vibrant and tumultuous beginnings and approach themes as polemic as the nature of God, the meaning of Jesus’s death, and the suffering of the martyrs—questions that are of as much interest today as they were 19 centuries earlier.

El descubrimiento del Evangelio de Judas ha suscitado una gran controversia entre los eruditos biblicos, y en esta obra detallada, dos expertas en los evangelios gnósticos abordan muchos interrogantes planteados por este importante hallazgo. ¿Cómo podría un cristiano imaginar que Judas, el traidor, fue el favorito de Jesús? ¿Por qué el autor de este evangelio está lleno de rabia hacia los otros discípulos? ¿Qué visión de Dios ofrece el autor? Las respuestas a estas preguntas introducen los vibrantes y tumultuosos inicios de la cristiandad y abordan temas tan polémicos como la naturaleza de Dios, el significado de la muerte de Jesús y el sufrimiento de los mártires—cuestiones de un enorme interés tanto hoy como 19 siglos atrás.
