N T Wright

$43.99

Hardback
Contents Preface 1. Not Another New Gospel? 2. 2nd Century Gnosticism 3. The Judas Of Faith And The Iscariot Of History 4. When Is A Gospel Not A Gospel 5. Lord Of The World Or Escaper From The World? 6. Spinning Judas: The New Myth Of Christian Origins 7. The Challenge Of "Judas" For Today Notes

- Publisher N. T. Wright, an ancient historian, biblical scholar, and bishop, offers a Christian response to the discovery (and the sensation surrounding that discovery) of the Gospel of Judas.

- Publisher Joining many other recently found and publicized "gospels," the Gospel of Judas has found its way into the limelight as the subject of some recently published books and some recent television programming. The ancient manuscript is genuine-so what are Christians to make of the claims therein? Claims such as -Judas was doing what Jesus asked him to do when he betrayed Jesus -Jesus came to offer secret knowledge of how to escape this earthly world, rather than to usher in God's kingdom on earth -Jesus felt no pain on the cross -and more This timely and necessary response to the Gospel of Judas is the authoritative, orthodox word on what it really tells us--and does not tell us--about Jesus, Judas, early Christianity, and Gnosticism. Tom Wright, as both a bishop and an historian, is uniquely qualified to speak on the subject and answers the questions Christians have after encountering this "new gospel."
