Judas : a friend indeed?

He's a betrayer, (so we’ve been told).
For thirty pieces of silver he had sold
Jesus Christ to his foes;
But now a new Gospel shows
That Judas merely did as he was told!


Times Online 07/04/06: According to the newly unveiled Gospel of Judas, Jesus had requested Judas to 'betray' him to the authorities for execution. Get the story here

    Whether Or not Judas was a traitor
    Does it actually now matter?
    News is, Jesus never really died
    His crucification - he survived
    And even had progeny later!

  2. Scorsese's film and Kazantsakis' book had this point, Jesus asking Judas. Legends never stop exciting us!
