A different perspective on the Judas we all know.
11 June 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

In the entire course of the history of Christianity, he was being labelled as the traitor to Jesus before the cruxification happened. Many condemned him since. But when records of maybe a long-lost scroll about Judas surfaced which showed a different side of him, how will the public react.

This documentary was first shown on the National Geographic around the Easter period this year and I even managed to watch it when it was on the cable here. As from what I remembered in my earlier school days at those chapel sessions (given I once attended a missionary school and the chapel is part of the school), there is a traitor among all of Jesus's disciples when they were all having the Last Supper. So, this documentary began to change from what I remembered and gave me another perspective of who Judas is maybe.

It may be an two-hour long documentary as I realised, but then when there was a repeat of it, even on the local free-to-air television here at a later date, I tried to watch it again. It was really insightful as to hear from those who had researched about the subject and gave their opinions. Even how maybe the Bible we all knew today actually contain many gospels before the ones Christians actually knew nowadays. Real eye-opener for me, even as a non-Christian.

I mean coming back to the documentary, given when the scroll was found, it was almost becoming dust. And when it was being pieced together, it showed a very different Judas that we all knew from the Bible, whether we are Christians or not ourselves. I am not a Christian myself but then I feel the documentary has done a nice job somewhere along the line in shedding the light of Judas.

Maybe it may take some time for people to understand that actually there is a different side of Judas. But given how I had always know of the National Geographic's standards in producing their documentaries, I do have some faith in them. So, if you are not afraid in knowing the other side of Judas, this is recommended.
