I picked up The Lost Gospel of Judas Iscariot at the last minute before a trip from Boston to Stockholm. I hoped it would contain the Gospel of Judas Iscariot along with commentary about its discovery, historical context, and meaning for gnostic Christians. I was disappointed to find instead that the book is really the story of how the papyrus codex that contains the gospel was discovered in Egypt and ultimately brought to experts that could understand what it was. While that story is interesting, a magazine length article would have been sufficient for my interest in the subject. The Gospel of Judas is not presented as a single work and only the most basic theological significance of the gospel is explored.
