Thread Name: BS: Book of Judas
Subject: RE: BS: Book of Judas
Frankly, I don't understand the connection that several here have referred to, connecting the supposed guilt of Judas to antisemitism. After all, they were ALL Jews--all the other disciples, Jesus, and the Pharisees too.

The wrong if any, the conspiracy again Jesus, if you will, on the one hand, and Jesus's "support group" and followers on the other were all Jewish. So how can one assign a great guilt, capable of lasting millennia, to the Jews as a people?

The great wrong, if indeed it occurred, was a sort of intramural political clash, seems to me.
