The Gospel of Judas

Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gospel_of_Judas

After just having read "Misquoting Jesus", it's interesting that another manuscript discovery, though it has been around for a while, is being revealed right around now. It is the Gospel of Judas, and implies in this Gnostic text that Judas was fully aware of and encouraged by Jesus to betray him.

It's a third or fourth century document, and it may not tell us much more about the actual history of events, but it does go to show how many Christian traditions and stories had sprung up.

The National Geographic Channel will have a special on it on April 9, 2006.
