Andreas Kostenberger on The Gospel of Judas

"We conclude, therefore, that the Gospel of Judas is not truly a Gospel; it does not go back to the “historical Judas” and does not preserve reliable tradition about Jesus or the Betrayer; and, while probably authentic, it contributes to a better understanding of Gnosticism but not of the biblical gospel or the true meaning of the sacrifice of Christ."

NT Scholar Andreas Kostenberger blogs on the Gospel of Judas.

Steven,

isn't it funny that modern scholars are catching up to people like Irenaeus who already told all this in his writing on heresies?
