Anybody here reads Gnostics Gospels, such as the Gospel of Thomas and Judas?

I read the Nag-Hammadi manuscripts. Really good stuff. They stole a lot from Zen.

One of the quotes on my blog is from the Gospel of Thomas. My fav Jesus quote ever is from them. "Do no worry, from morning to evening, and from evening to morning, about what you will wear". SO COOL. Much better than camels going through the eyes of needles.

The Gospel of Judas isn't Judas the traitor, it's Judas the Apostle. If I remember correctly, Judas Thomas the Twin, or some such.

No no. There is a Gospel of Judas Iscariot, the traitor. It was much talked about by scholars but none has found physical evidence of it until now.

In it, it was said that Judas was called and commanded by Jesus to do what is necessary (i.e. to betray him to the Romans and the Jewish priesthood) so that he can be 'freed from his mortal body'.

Now that just sounds dumb. Seems to me to be the work of an apologist revisionist historian out to destroy the central tenent of Christinity. It's the Jesus Papers all over again.

Jesus died, Jesus came back. Live with it.
