Product Description

How does the Gospel of Judas mesh with LDS beliefs?

In recent months, the news media have focused intensively on the discovery of the so-called “lost Gospel” — the Gospel of Judas. It has been the cover story of Time and Newsweek magazines, and most recently, National Geographic released a documentary about it.

The furor raised in scholarly and religious circles has caused many Latter-day Saints to wonder:

  • What is the Gospel of Judas and how was it discovered?
  • Does it contain any new information about the Savior?
  • Is there any reason to believe that Jesus asked Judas to betray him?
  • Was Judas given secret knowledge by Jesus, knowledge that established Judas as superior to the eleven other Apostles?
  • Is the Gospel of Judas an authentic document or perhaps a forgery?

In this CD, five outstanding LDS New Testament scholars use a round-table discussion format to address these intriguing questions and many others. It is a discussion that you will find fascinating and enlightening.
