The problem with the Gospel of Judas is that it is in disagreement with three Gospels and the Book of Acts from the inspired Scriptures that have stood the test for authenticity. The Bible says the following about Judas Iscariot (all readings from the New International Version):

“The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.” Matthew 26:24

“Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus. They were delighted and agreed to give him money.” Luke 22:3-5

“Simon Peter answered him,‘Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.’ Then Jesus replied,‘Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!’(He meant Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, who, though one of the Twelve, was later to betray him.)” John 6:68-71

“It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love. The evening meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus. Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him. He came to Simon Peter, who said to him,‘Lord, are you going to wash my feet?’ Jesus replied,‘You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.’‘No,’ said Peter,‘you shall never wash my feet.’ Jesus answered,‘Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.’‘Then, Lord,’ Simon Peter replied,‘not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!’ Jesus answered,‘A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.’ For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.” John 13:1-11

“After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, "I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me." His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant. One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him. Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, "Ask him which one he means." Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, "Lord, who is it?" Jesus answered, "It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish." Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon. As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. "What you are about to do, do quickly," Jesus told him, but no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him.” John 13:21-27

“When he was gone, Jesus said, "Now is the Son of Man glorified and God is glorified in him. If God is glorified in him, God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once. "My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come. "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." John 13:31-35

“With the reward he got for his wickedness, Judas bought a field;” Acts 1:18

Jesus being the Savior has nothing to do with secret knowledge!

yes it does disagree with the other gospels but the other disciples hated judas afterwards so whats to say that they didnt put things like that in thier writings to portray judas as an evildoer when he was just doing what he had been instructed to do. but i suppose that next youre going write something about how im damned for being wicca

The problem with the Gospel of Judas is that it is missing WAY too much for even a seasoned scholar to make any sense out of it. With all the missing lines, the entries that are superimposed in their places are simply guesses.
We will all find out in our \ His time!

the problem with the gospel of judas is that, like every other book in the bible, either it talks a lot of gobbledy gook or alternativelt doesnt say very much at all; of any real interest any way. I was intereseted to read it becuase it hinted at some secret knowledge into the true nature of things, but very soon it just became a ramble of incomprehensible clat trap.

In those days the guest of honor always sat to the right of the host for the dinner. Peter wanted to sit to the right of Jesus, but you see Judas was the guest of honor and sat to the right of Jesus to set Gods plan of salvation in motion. Peter sat at the end of the table where the help sat and he was one of Jesus's closest apostles. This to me is affirmation that Judas was the guest of honor at the last supper. God could have sent legions of Angels to save Jesus but he loved man so much that he gave his only begotten son to pay for our sins so who so ever believeth in the son of man shall not perish but have eternal life.

We have all heard the saying that you cant teach an old dog new tricks...The truth is out there to those with ears to hear.
There is a spirit in man: & the in- spirit-ation of the Almighty gives understanding. That which is born of flesh is flesh & that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. For what man knoweth the things of a man, except the spirit of man which is inside? Likewise the things of God no flesh knows, but the Spirit of God.
It is written in the prophets, "And they shall be all taught of God." God is a Spirit. A spirit does not have flesh nor does it have bones.
i am not typing this say that none of you know the truth, but to remind you that you do know the truth, & we all know truth is truth. But remember that you have an Unction from the Holy One & you know all things.

"Jesus says to Judas:

"Lift up your eyes and look at the cloud and the light within it and the stars surrounding it. The star that leads the way is your star."
When i heard this for the first time, i felt my heart burning within. Judas was the first to die. And he did grieve a great deal to have killed himself. But he never did blasepheme against the Holy Ghost, which is the only unforgivable sin. Plus even Peter had grieved a great deal when he betrayed Christ 3 times via Denial but his calling was different (LUKE 22:31-38). And again, Presumptuous sin to the one who fell into temptation via taking the sword to the high priests' servants ear (MATTHEW 26:51-56).
And even Enoch, the 7th from Adam said of Dreams, they are visions which the Great One has given to men to converse therewith (Convert;Conversate) & understand with the heart (Enoch XIV:2-3). When Judas had the dream of the "OTHER DISCIPLES" "Stoning him", i understood also in my heart that the "OTHER DISCIPLES" are still "Stoning him" through the words they left in their Gospels.
But remember Jesus did call Judas friend even to the point of betrayal (MATTHEW 26:50). He asked a retorical question as calling him His Friend. And again Scripture must be fulfilled, saying, that GOD gave His Son...that through Him the world might be saved {John 3:16-17).

And you are clean, though not every one of you.’ For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.”(John 13:1-11).

“After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, "I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me." His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant. One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.

Jesus said in John 13:18 that He "Chose" the one who He was speaking of, that would lift up his heal against Him. Now i learned via those natural Jews that anytime Jesus uses the term "VERILY, VERILY" He is emphazising to pay very close attention. Did He not say that whoever did not recieve whom HE SENT did not recieve Him?
