Joining many other recently found and publicized "gospels," the Gospel of Judas has found its way into the limelight as the subject of some recently published books and some recent television programming. The ancient manuscript is genuine-so what are Christians to make of the claims therein? Claims such as

-Judas was doing what Jesus asked him to do when he betrayed Jesus
-Jesus came to offer secret knowledge of how to escape this earthly world, rather than to usher in God's kingdom on earth
-Jesus felt no pain on the cross
-and more

This timely and necessary response to the Gospel of Judas is the authoritative, orthodox word on what it really tells us--and does not tell us--about Jesus, Judas, early Christianity, and Gnosticism. Tom Wright, as both a bishop and an historian, is uniquely qualified to speak on the subject and answers the questions Christians have after encountering this "new gospel."
