Overview

THE SECRETS OF JUDAS Traces the Trail of the Text, the Skullduggery Surrounding the Sale of the Gospel and Sets the Record Straight on the Life of the Most Misunderstood Disciple

As news about the discovery and translation of the lost Gospel of Judas explodes, the first book about the mysterious gospel--an authentic papyrus manuscript from the 4th century-- reveals what we can and cannot know about the historical Judas. In THE SECRETS OF JUDAS renowned scholar James Robinson unravels the mystery of the enigmatic disciple and asks whether we should reconsider his place in history, culture, and faith.

For the first time the sensational story of the discovery of a gospel attributed to Judas is told, and Judas’s newfound significance for history and Christian faith is exposed. Chapter by chapter THE SECRETS OF JUDAS delves into every aspect of Judas--from the words attributed to him, to his historical significance to the "peddling" of the Judas Gospel, to the forthcoming publication of the Gospel of Judas by The National Geographic Society. THE SECRETS OF JUDAS reveals the unvarnished truth of the controversial discovery and scandalous sale of the lost Gospel of Judas and how it changes our view of the "evil" disciple--all told by one of the world's foremost scholars of ancient documents.

    A BookLove Review

    Review by Jason Lush

    Read it for the information about archeology and the people who study coptic writings, but not to learn any thing of Judas or the document "The Gospel of Judas".

    Simply put, this is an informative and interesting book, but it has nothing to do with its sensational title. The man Judas is mentioned briefly, but the remainder is about the documents' procurement and the people involved with its translation and preservation.

    Nothing...nothing of the document itself or any of its content. The spiritual content of this book is no more than any thinking reader of the New Testament could surmise on their own.

    Good book, over blown title.
