World renowned theologian Tom Wright gives his scholarly reaction and response to the Gospel of Judas debate. In his 2006 Easter address, Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, condemned the credibility of the gospel, saying, "This is a demonstrably late text which simply parallels a large number of quite well-known works from the more eccentric fringes of the early century Church." Here, the Bishop of Durham offers his masterful account of this controversial topic.
N. T. Wright is Bishop of Durham and the author of over thirty books, including the For Everyone guides to the New Testament and the magisterial series entitled Christian Origins and the Question of God. He is a member of the International Anglican Doctrinal and Theological Commission.
