The Thirteenth Apostle

Full Product Description

In 2006, National Geographic released the English translation of the "Gospel of Judas. It caused a sensation because it seemed to overturn the popular image of Judas the betrayer and instead presented a benevolent Judas. This work offers a translation of the "Gospel of Judas" which challenges the National Geographic interpretation of a good Judas. It provides a new English translation to the "Gospel of Judas" that is more faithful to the language of the original manuscript. It also suggests an explanation for why certain translation choices are crucial to the interpetation of this gospel.

April DeConick is Isla Carroll and Percy E. Turner Professor of Biblical Studies at Rice University, Houston. She is the author of Thomas And Other Ancient Christian Literature and The Original Gospel Of Thomas In Translation.

The Thirteenth Apostle by April D DeConick was published by Continuum in December 2007 and is our 46313th best seller. The ISBN for The Thirteenth Apostle is 9780826499646.
