The "Gospel of Judas" (yeah, right)

93!

At last, a reasonably intelligent article about same -- complete with an Uncle Al ref, no less!:

Brief version: as expected, yet another Gnostic text, dated to 3-4 century EV, probably based on a 2d century text...like the others. As to having any actual connection to Jesus*, it's still Gospel of Thomas** 1, all others 0, far as I can see.
