Gospel of Judas Update

The initial books on the Gospel of Judas will be appearing in April. There will be three books. The first two are published by National Geographic:-

The Gospel of Judas
This appears to be the first publication of the text itself, in Coptic and in English translation.
The Lost Gospel : The Quest for the Gospel of Judas Iscariot
The second book appears to be an account of how the Gospel of Judas came to light again. Presumably it will also contain a translation of the text.

Also, James Robinson has written his own book on the torturous provenance of the Gospel of Judas
The Secrets of Judas: The Story of the Misunderstood Disciple and His Lost Gospel

There are now sundry news items about the Gospel of Judas. Rather than post all the individual links here’s a link to Google News:-

The main point of controversy in the media seems to be whether the gospel contains genuine historical knowledge about Judas and Jesus. The asumption behind many of teh articles is that the canonical gospels contain accurate historical information.
