Judas Iscariot's 1700-Year-Old "Get Out of Hell Free" Card Put Back Together Again

A fascinating story about the lost Gnostic gospel. Anyone who loves the depiction of the Ju-man in The Last Temptation of Christ will be heartened by this restoration.

The big question in my mind: Will this discovery help re-acquaint people with the Gnostic gospels, and empower more people to redefine their approach to the Christian faith? Here's hoping.

The Last Temptation of Christ is one of my favorite books and films. I like how it looks at the "human" side of the Jesus story. Reading about the Gospel of Judas and what it may reveal reminds me quite a bit of the film "The Life of David Gale." It is a good reminder that we are not always privy to all of the information; therefore, we should not be so quick to judge.
