What is The Judas Gospel? Does it tell us anything true about Jesus or Judas?
Nicholas Perrin offers a helpful assessment of The Gospel of Judas, released by the National Geographic Society in the spring of 2006.
Not a gospel at all, he gives a brief history of its origin and discovery, an overview of its contents, and an appraisal of its historical value for first-century conclusions about Jesus and Judas and for second-century Gnosticism.
A great aid to witnessing about the truth of Scripture and the heresies that would try to overcome it.
