The Gospel of Judas

The National Geographic have a micro-site on The Gospel of Judas. According to this codex, Jesus wanted to die in order to be free of the flesh, and Judas was the only disciple who understood his teachings enough to oblige him. There's a fascinating timeline on the site about the early church. It was a time of ideological struggle within Christianity as well as the transition period between the Roman and Christian worlds.
