More on the gospel of Judas

Just a quick post to link you to Ben Witherington's resources about the gospel of Judas (nicely summarized on Michael Kruse's website). Ben is a supurb scholar, I've used his commentary on John and have his commentary on Mark in the wings for my upcoming series on Mark later in the year. Take a look at how he handles this whole Judas flap.

And for you conspiracy theory types Ryan Gabbard points us to an article in Slate magazine that brings to light some of the seedy history behind the "recovered" manuscript. Well worth a look-see.
