This book, originally published in the 1950s, contains an account, writings, and secret teachings of Judas Iscariot. Recently the Gospel of Judas was discovered and translated, and it showed how Judas was in reality just playing a role in the “Christic drama” as requested by Jesus. This book, written well before the Gospel of Judas was found, corroborates with that account.
