    A newly deciphered Egyptian text, dating back almost 1,200 years, tells part of the crucifixion story of Jesus with apocryphal plot twists, some of which have never been seen before.

    Written in the Coptic language, the ancient text tells of Pontius Pilate, the judge who authorized Jesus' crucifixion, having dinner with Jesus before his crucifixion and offering to sacrifice his own son in the place of Jesus. It also explains why Judas used a kiss, specifically, to betray Jesus — because Jesus had the ability to change shape, according to the text — and it puts the day of the arrest of Jesus on Tuesday evening rather than Thursday evening, something that contravenes the Easter timeline.

    Are you sure that this was not a gnostic document? It sounds cuckoo to me.

    Sounds like Egyptian science fiction writers were at work 800 years after Jesus walked on this earth.

    Or, perhaps better to liken to those, today, who are busy re-writing modern history to reflect their viewpoints on a host of issues.
