Overview

On best-seller lists nationwide: New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, and the Washington Post.

This compelling and exhaustively researched account reveals the truth behind one of the greatest Judeo Christian archaeology of the century—a 1,600-year-old papyrus manuscript, or codex, containing the only known surviving Gospel of Judas. With all the skills of an investigative journalist and master storyteller, Herbert Krosney traces the forgotten gospel's improbable journey from the sands of the Egyptian desert across three continents—a trek that would take it through the netherworld of the international antiquities trade—until the crumbling papyrus is finally made to give up its secrets.

Sold twice, lost once and hidden in a safe-deposit box in Long Island for sixteen years, the story of The Gospel of Judas's amazing trek from the cavern near the banks of the Nile River reads like a "plot from a Hollywood mystery." Was one of history's greatest villains really one of its greatest heroes? Was Judas Iscariot really Jesus Christ's betrayer? With the discovery of the 1,600-year-old Gospel, you can now decide for yourself.

    Skip this one

    This book is a huge waist of time. The author goes on & on through pointless narrative & uselese info. If you buy this book then open up the back of the book where the actual gospel is. And, if you want to really learn something then buy a book written by an author who was educated in that field of study. Investigative reporting is not a qualification for this subject matter. To learn something read Bart Ehrman, who wrote the forward,or James Kugel.

    Krosney gives good coverage of the discovery and publication sid

    Krosney gives good coverage of the discovery and publication side of things. But like others have said, the interpretation is best left to others. Make that ... me. No scholar has yet realized that the sacrifice at the end is JUDAS, not Jesus. This is the Gnsotic version of "Betrayal", not the orthodox one. Christianity will be in for a shock when the world finds out that the Gnostics have the real version of 'Judas'. He is a stand-in for James, the Lord's 'brother'. HE is the sacrifice, and the successor savior. Yes, Jesus was not the only one. In fact he was most likely fictional, too. judaswasjames dot com for more. --Robert Wahler, author

    Well written. Provides a good background for the unfamiliar

    I think the author did a good job in presenting the story of how the Gospel of Judas came about. Not knowing much about the subject matter, I found the book to be a joy to read.

    Fasinating Search of Historical Data

    I have to give the author a credit for excellent job in gathering the data for this historical figure Judas. This book gives me an analogy of the lost Gospel as a piece of evidence to bail out Judas who has been in jail for so long for the crime of betrayal that he probably did not commit.It is fastinating for me to see the endurance of the author to gather all the data. Now it is for us to judge if the evidence is convincing enough for the verdict. Thinking is good for our soul.
