The Gospel of Judas

When not scanning the local channels, I would be at Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Asia Travel, HBO, Star TV, Star Movies ... hmmm ... practically everywhere.

Well, I have also become a regular viewer of the National Geographic Channel. They are currently promoting this segment called Gospel of Judas and it looks like a very interesting topic. Thought you might want to check it out as well. This will be aired on Sunday, April 9, 2006 at 10:00PM.

The National Geographic Channel website describes it thus:
Discovered by chance in the 1970s, a document that lay hidden for nearly 1,700 years emerges today as the only known surviving copy of "The Gospel of Judas." The Gospel of Judas traces the incredible story of what has happened to the document since it was found, the recent authentication process, and key insight gleaned from its translation and interpretation. The research will reveal fascinating details contained within the document as well as key sections translated from its ancient Coptic script.

So, it's a TV date? Get the popcorn ready at 10PM!


  1. Hmmn...Tipong Holy Blood, Holy Grail...thanks for the tip, mapanood nga.

  2. Haven't seen the show but saw the news reports on it last night during the show Primetime. There are lots of gospels that have been found but aren't in today's bible. I've always wished someone would create a new book with all of them included. It was pretty interesting that Judas may have not betrayed Jesus but actually was a martyr for him.

  3. haha, pareho pala tayo- naka-alert na nga ang program for me bukas!

    a date!

  4. ako din nahihilig sa national geographic, tapos sumunod yun animal planet at discovery.. dami kasing matutunan...

  5. Yay, I'm back! I'm just finishing a post describing my adventures in Cagayan. It's a great place.

    Most of the Gnostic so-called gospels are found to have been written hundreds of years after Christ. It will be interesting to see if they can date this newest "new" Judas gospel.

    Stuff like that has been faked in that part of the world even before Jesus. The Romans were great fans of antiquity and the Egyptians were anxious to provide, for a price! Nothing ever changes.

  6. You're welcome Pepe!

    Hello Ed. You have a good grasp of what it's all about!

    Owen! 2-hours documentary pala sya!

    Ok ng manood sa ganung mga channel e, cruise. very informative.

    Phil, I will visit your blog for your latest adventure. I will also post something about the Gospel of Judas later on.

  7. Like the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi discoveries, this latest 'gospel' increases the amount of new scriptural material only available this century making the concept of 'canonical scriptures' and the traditions built upon them even less convincing. What would 'Christianity' look like if all these resources were available from the beginning? Check this link: www.energon.uklinux.net
