Gospel of Judas

In a discovery that is BIG* and soon will be controversial, Nat Geo reports that the Gospel of Judas has been found.

It offers an alternate take on the events of April, 29 AD.
"...The text begins by announcing that it is the 'secret account of the revelation that Jesus spoke in conversation with Judas Iscariot during a week, three days before he celebrated Passover.' It goes on to describe Judas as Jesus' closest friend, someone who understands Christ's true message and is singled out for special status among Jesus' disciples. In the key passage Jesus tells Judas, "you will exceed all of them. For you will sacrifice the man that clothes me"..."

Read more here. I wonder if the gospel also sheds light on Jesus's life before he starts preaching. Would love if he confirms that Jesus came to India!! :-)

By the way, read Falstaff's take on the issue of Judas and the sacrifice of Jesus. Watch this space for more.

*Hope it's not a prank.

I really thought all of this was covered in "the last temptation of christ". The entire Judas was JC's blue eyed boy was the entire premise for that book. Will be trippy if he came to India. Think he came and then took up weed. Which would explain this look, looks like he's puffin on some Tea. Notice the missing joint between his fingers.
