For more than 2000 years, Judas Iscariot has been THE villain and betrayer. BUT in a
lost-until-recently text the ancient Gnostics had an actual Gospel of Judas where Judas is…
a religious leader?
an ambiguous figure?
an evil demon?
the new god of this world?!
So you can guess interpreting this text isn’t easy so that’s why we’re joined by Dr. David Brakke who has a new book “The Gospel of Judas: A New Translation with Introduction and Commentary” and serves as our guide to this fascinating Gospel.
