Publisher's Summary

The Gospel According to Judas, by Benjamin Iscariot, sheds new light on the mystery of Judas (including his motives for the betrayal and what happened to him after the crucifixion) by retelling the story of Jesus through the eyes of Judas, using the canonical texts as its basic point of reference. Ostensibly written by Judas' 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 work, bold and simple, is a compelling story for 21st-century readers, while maintaining an authenticity that would be credible to a first-century Christian or Jew.

The Gospel According to Judas

Enjoyed Archbishop Desmond Tutu narration of this story. This is a short book that follows the story of Jesus from the view point of Judas Iscariot. The most interesting part of the book was Judas's life after the death of Jesus. This is a pleasant easy to listen to story that is great for a commute to work.

J.I.

This book managed to take you back in the time of jesus,very informative heartfelt,and another side as to what part Judas Iscariot played in the death of jesus. Having Desmond TuTu narrate was a nice touch as well.

Intriguing

I really enjoyed the premises. I have often wondered about the story from Judas's perspective. This story of historical fiction could be one legitimate and accepted outcome. Only God knows.
