The very name of Judas raises among Christians an
instinctive reaction of criticism and condemnationThe
betrayal of Judas remainsa mystery. Pope Benedict XVI,
October 2006 The Gospel According to Judas, by Benjamin
Iscariot sheds new light on the the mystery of
Judasincluding his motives for the betrayal and what
happened to him after the crucifixionby retelling the story
of Jesus through the eyes of Judas, using the canonical
texts as its basic point of reference. Ostensibly written by
Judass son, Benjamin, and following the narrative style of
the Gospels, this re-creation is provocative, compelling,
and controversial. The Gospel According to Judas, by
Benjamin Iscariot is the result of an intense collaboration
between a storyteller and a scholar: Jeffrey Archer and
Francis J. Moloney. Their brilliant workbold and simpleis a
compelling story for twenty-first-century readers, while
maintaining an authenticity that would be credible to a
first-century Christian or Jew.
