I’m just doing this to get reactions, and because it’s a constroversial recent event. I’m not overly interested.
Years ago, a transcript was discovered in Egypt that appeared to be the “Gospel of Judas”. It went from the hands of a villager to two international antiques traders, who had to keep it secret to dodge Egyptian laws and avoid theft. They showed it to a few religious archeologists, who found it of interest. The price they demanded was too high, however, and they retained it until recently, when it fell into the archeologists hands at last.
The transcript appears to be authentic, and describes the so-called Gospel of Judas. the document claims that Jesus spoke secretly to Judas, telling him to betray Jesus so that Jesus’ soul would be freed from his of-the-earth body.
The document appears to have references to gnostic beliefs and mysticism, particularly the belief that there is one supreme God, but that the God who created our earth is subordinate to the supreme God. At one point, the document refers to Jesus chastizing the deciples for their belief in “their” God, referring to the chaotic God who created the earth, possibly implying that there is a subordinate God.
I am neutral on this issue. However, I would like to hear your guys’ views on this.
