Information on Gospel of Judas

Charles W. Hedrick writes in the Bible Review (“The 34 Gospels: Diversity and Division Among the Earliest Christians”):

In sum, in addition to the four canonical gospels, we have four complete noncanonicals, seven fragmentary, four known from quotations and two hypothetically recovered for a total of 21 gospels from the first two centuries, and we know that others existed in the early period. I am confident more of them will be found. For example, I have seen photos of several pages from a Coptic text entitled “The Gospel of Judas” that recently surfaced on the antiquities market. for more click here
