    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--The gospel of Judas is helpful in understanding early church heresy but should be viewed as false writings and not comparable to the biblical Gospels, conservative scholars say.

    A group of scholars and translators announced in early April the document’s discovery, disclosing the find just before a special about the manuscript aired on the National Geographic Channel. National Geographic billed it as a "lost gospel."

    Christians long have known about the gospel of Judas and considered it heretical -- even though they didn't have an entire copy. Much of what previously was known came from an early church father, Irenaeus -- a hero of church history who was bishop of Lyons and lived in the second century -- who wrote a work titled "Against Heresies," in which he called the gospel of Judas "fictitious history."

    Now if "Fictitious history" was already a matter of "historic problem" for the contemporaries of Iraneous - HOW can anyone insist that NO HERESY - nor error of any kind was infecting the beliefs of the ECF after John???!!

    GoJ is nothing but more Gnostic heresy wrapped under a different guise.

    the gospel of Judas is a big load of hogwash wrapped in anti-christian demonic deception by the wicked God-hating lost of this world.
