Thread Name: BS: Book of Judas
Subject: RE: BS: Book of Judas
Having read a few excerps from the Book of Judas, I cannot imagine that it will provide any insight into the historical Jesus.   The concept about Judas obeying the will of Jesus is not new and being so heavily immersed in Gnostic terms may offer no real insight into that idea either. It could offer some insight into Gnostic thinking and some factions of 2nd & 3rd century Christianity.
