The Lost Gospel

I have been curious about the Lost Gospel, I already heard about it a long time ago but have no idea whats the fuzz going around about it. But I remain fixed on what I believed and still believe about the Bible and about Jesus. I am not going to confuse myself. Of course there would be reasons behind why National Geographic exposed this kind of issue on a Palm Sunday, maybe pure coincidence or reasons they only know about.

What is the exposed gospel's name? I thought I had heard about all of them.

Thanks for visiting my place.

The so-called "exposed gospel's" name is the Gospel of Judas.

It was purportedly written by a group of gnostic Christians, who basically believed that you came to God through "knowledge" (gnosis) not the Cross, and that God was in everything.

The council of Nicea was called to standardize which books should be in the Bible and shun heretical works like the Gospel of Judas. I have not read this one, but in the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus comes across as a new-age guru.

Plus which, these works were written over a hundred years after the facts pseudonomously, not by the Apostles whose names the works bear. And I'm not even going to get into the questionable authenticity of the Gospel of Judas.

I am non-Christian but I think that there is never a Lost Gospel...just a Gospel that the Christian faith doesn't want to hear. Either because it is heritical or doesn't have any evidence to back it up, though I would like to see the evidence about the currently accepted Gospels and by evidence I don't mean the fact that it's in the Bible.

Thanks to randy for the explanation of which gospel it is. I had heard about that one. I am aware of and assume your readers are that knowledgeable as well, that the idea of "Free Will" didn't exist in the case of Judas. If he had said, "No" and chose not to betray Jesus, then the whole religion concept called Christianity would never have happened. Adam and Eve. Noah. Job. Lots of people never had or were not permitted to exercise their supposed "Free Will." So, maybe Judas did say, "No, Lord, I shall not betray you." If he did, then prophecy would not be right or accurate. So if he did, maybe Jesus did ask him to do it. And if he did, then I wonder what kind of deal Jesus made with him for his life hereafter? Was it something like he made with the man on the cross to whom he said he would see him in Paradise. This is all interesting.
