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.

Comments:
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.
