Review 1 for The Lost Gospel of Judas Iscariot: A New Look at Betrayer and Betrayed
Date:December 24, 2008
While the information revealed in this gospel is most likely accurate, the interpretations are somwhat off the mark. The interpreters of this gospel have made the mistake of comparing these notes with what the canonical gospels of the New Testsment have said. The message this gospel depicts suggest that Judas may be the hero. Judas was not a hero, but what this gospel reveals suggests that he "could have been" a hero.
