This article discusses the Gospel of Judas, an Early Christian text found in Egypt about 1978 and published in 2006 with much media attention. One of the questions raised by the discovery of the Gospel of Judas is whether it includes any credible historical information. The author examines the physical document itself, internal textual references, and comparative analysis to conclude that the Gospel of Judas contains no new historical details. While the manuscript reveals little about Jesus or Judas, readers who study it can discover more about Gnostic beliefs.
