The Thirteenth Apostle

£5.99

Available in Stock

April D DeConick offers a radical new interpretation of the Gospel of Judas, arguing that the first translation published by National Geographic in 2006 misrepresents the original Coptic text. DeConick sees the Gospel as a parody of mainstream Christianity written by a second-century Sethian Gnostic, and rather than the 'good' Judas of National Geographic's version, her translation and analysis reveal him as an exceptionally demonic character. Revised edition.
