ROME – The Gospel of Judas was unimportant to most Christians when it was written hundreds of years ago and it is unimportant today, said a Jesuit scholar, who has convoked a series of ecumenical studies of the historical Jesus.
FINAL WORDS ON LAST PAGE OF ANCIENT TEXT – The final words on the last page of this Coptic manuscript read: "Gospel of Judas." The National Geographic Society released the first modern translation of the ancient Judas text April 6. (CNS photos/courtesy of National Geographic Society)
