The Gospel of Judas

Just recently I wrote a very short review of N.T. Wright's book, Judas and the Gospel of Jesus at my blog devoted to book reviews, Craig's Reading List. The May 30 issue of The Chronicle Review has an article by Thomas Bartlett discussing more recent scholarship surrounding the so-called Gospel of Judas.

The controversy, though not as public and media-grabbing, is far from over, especially since the original documents have been made public through high resolution imaging within just the past year. The blatant misinterpretations and the overly good picture painted of by the original translators of this gnostic text have caused somewhat of an uproar among scholars.

All of you might not be interested in such a conversation, but for those who might be, the full text of the article can be found here.
