Gospel of Judas' Surfaces After 1,700
An early Christian manuscript, including the only known text of what is
known as the Gospel of Judas, has surfaced after 1,700 years. The text gives
new insights into the relationship of Jesus and the disciple who betrayed him,
scholars reported today. In this version, Jesus asked Judas, as a close
friend, to sell him out to the authorities, telling Judas he will "exceed" the
other disciples by doing so.

Society, shows the last page of the codex. The final words read "Gospel
Though some theologians have hypothesized this, scholars who have studied
the new-found text said, this is the first time an ancient document defends
The discovery in the desert of Egypt of the leather-bound papyrus
manuscript, and now its translation, was announced by the National Geographic
Society at a news conference in Washington. The 26-page Judas text is said to
be a copy in Coptic, made around A. D. 300, of the original Gospel of Judas,
written in Greek the century before.
Terry Garcia, an executive vice president of the geographic society, said
the manuscript, or codex, is considered by scholars and scientists to be the
most significant ancient, nonbiblical text to be found in the past 60 years.
"The codex has been authenticated as a genuine work of ancient Christian
apocryphal literature," Mr. Garcia said, citing extensive tests of radiocarbon
dating, ink analysis and multispectral imaging and studies of the script and
linguistic style. The ink, for example, was consistent with ink of that era,
and there was no evidence of multiple rewriting.
"This is absolutely typical of ancient Coptic manuscripts," said Stephen
Emmel, professor of Coptic studies at the University of Munster in Germany. "I
am completely convinced."
The most revealing passages in the Judas manuscript begins, "The secret
account of the revelation that Jesus spoke in conversation with Judas Iscariot
during a week, three days before he celebrated Passover."
The account goes on to relate that Jesus refers to the other disciples,
telling Judas "you will exceed all of them. For you will sacrifice the man
that clothes me." By that, scholars familiar with Gnostic thinking said, Jesus
meant that by helping him get rid of his physical flesh, Judas will act to
liberate the true spiritual self or divine being within Jesus.
Unlike the accounts in the New Testament Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and
John, the anonymous author of the Gospel of Judas believed that Judas Iscariot
alone among the 12 disciples understood the meaning of Jesus' teachings and
acceded to his will. In the diversity of early Christian thought, a group
known as Gnostics believed in a secret knowledge of how people could escape
the prisons of their material bodies and return to the spiritual realm from
which they came.
Elaine Pagels, a professor of religion at
Princeton who specializes in studies of the Gnostics, said in a statement,
"These discoveries are exploding the myth of a monolithic religion, and
demonstrating how diverse — and fascinating — the early Christian movement
The Gospel of Judas is only one of many texts discovered in the last 65
years, including the gospels of Thomas, Mary Magdalene and Philip, believed to
be written by Gnostics.
The Gnostics' beliefs were often viewed by bishops and early church leaders
as unorthodox, and they were frequently denounced as heretics. The discoveries
of Gnostic texts have shaken up Biblical scholarship by revealing the
diversity of beliefs and practices among early followers of Jesus.
As the findings have trickled down to churches and universities, they have
produced a new generation of Christians who now regard the Bible not as the
literal word of God, but as a product of historical and political forces that
determined which texts should be included in the canon, and which edited out.
For that reason, the discoveries have proved deeply troubling for many
believers. The Gospel of Judas portrays Judas Iscariot not as a betrayer of
Jesus, but as his most favored disciple and willing collaborator.
Scholars say that they have long been on the lookout for the Gospel of
Judas because of a reference to what was probably an early version of it in a
text called Against Heresies, written by Irenaeus, the bishop of Lyons, about
the year 180.
Irenaeus was a hunter of heretics, and no friend of the Gnostics. He wrote,
"They produce a fictitious history of this kind, which they style the Gospel
