Excerpts: The Gospel of Judas

Conversations between Jesus and Judas from the newly-translated 'Gospel of Judas'

Judas Asks About His Own Fate

Judas said, “Master, could it be that my seed is under the control of the rulers?”

Jesus answered and said to him, “Come, that I [—two lines missing—], but that you will grieve much when you see the kingdom and all its generation.”

 

When he heard this, Judas said to him, “What good is it that I have received it? For you have set me apart for that generation.” Jesus answered and said, “You will become the thirteenth, and you will be cursed by the other generations—and you will come to rule over them. In the last days they will curse your ascent [47] to the holy [generation].”

 

Jesus Speaks of Those Who Are Baptized, and Judas's Betrayal

Judas said to Jesus, “Look, what will those who have been baptized in your name do?”

 

Jesus said, “Truly I say [to you], this baptism [56] […] my name [—about nine lines missing—] to me. Truly [I] say to you, Judas, [those who] offer sacrifices to Saklas […] God [—three lines missing—] everything that is evil.
