Gospel of Judas on display (News24)
"The world's only known copy of the Gospel of Judas, arrived in Egypt on Wednesday for public display. . . . The manuscript dates to the third or fourth centuries and portrays the apostle Judas as Jesus' faithful servant, not his betrayer. The document had been undergoing restoration and translation in Switzerland, where it had been acquired by the privately owned Maecenas Foundation. The Gospel of Judas was discovered by a villager in Egypt's southern desert province of Minya in the 1970s." The manuscript will go on display in the Coptic Museum in Cairo. See the above page for the full story.
