-Recap: "Did the Gospel of Judas Show Mislead Millions?"

by Dr. D ~ June 8th, 2008

Here is an article on the Baptist Press which lists a number of ways that the National Geographic distorted the truth in their portrayal of Judas as a ‘hero’ in the supposed "Gospel of Judas". Apparently, the translation which was done by their ‘dream team’ of experts was not entirely accurate.

 image Also, the TV show was publicized at the time in a sensational way that seem to imply that the New Testament understanding of Judas as a villain was now being questioned with the publication of this new supposed ‘Gospel’. However, all the scholars were in agreement to the fact that the new ‘Gospel of Judas’ really did not record any real historical events from the first century, but actually amounted to theological fiction from the middle of the second century instead.

Here are several articles I wrote at the time evaluating the ‘Gospel of Judas’:
