The lost gospel of Judas

Some folks have probably heard about this newly released set of archives which purport to change the way Judas should be viewed in history. In these documents it is written that Jesus asked Judas to betray him, which radically departs from the accepted Christian belief that Judas was..well..a Judas, a prick that exposed Jesus for his own gain.

The National Geographic online site has an exhibit of these documents which is quite interesting and detailed. The link is here.

OK I'm ashamed to ask but when did you change your template? Apparently I haven't been around for a while or I'm on crack. I'd say that's a 50-50 chance of either being true (but I'd lean toward the crack.) Thanks for stopping by today. Sorry about your AI issues but I am looking forward to tonights show (actually Freddie Mercury is probably rolling over in his grave.) LOL. Hey that is a great post below about Oildale. I can close my eyes and imagine I'm there. I love(d) Buck Ownens and that Bakersfield sound. Tiger by the tail and Streets of Bakersfield are two of my favorite songs from that genre. Dwight Yokum is hot as hell too. LOL Have a great night babe.

Whoa, this such a cool plate. I just hope it doesn't choke Exploder like every other cool thing on the Net does.

I'd be careful before reading too much into the Judas thing. Zondervan's archive contains some of the oldest surviving items written by humans, and they have almost complete access to the Israeli and Vatican archives, and have never even hinted to this.

It should seem suspect to the scientist, which I happen to have just received a very flattering commendation for being, that something like the Da Vinci Code and this "revelation" (which is pretty standard Masonic-Knights Templar rhetoric) come out around the same time.

So, in the end, yes, the Col. Dr. remains a rock star, military genius, genius of miscellaneous departments, and scientific genius.
