Decent For What It Was
11 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

This film chronicles the discovery of an ancient text, known as the Gospel of Judas, that offers a different view of the disciple who betrayed Jesus.

How do we go about rating something that was made for television as a National Geographic special? The commercial breaks should be cut a bit better (on Netflix you are left looking at a blank screen far too long), but all in all it transfers to a 90-minute documentary well.

More or less, all you need is Elaine Pagels, the undisputed expert on the Gnostic Gospels and related books. And she was here, so that worked. Some of the "this is probably how it happened" probably was not necessary. And the order of events was a bit odd at times...

But, for history buffs and religious scholars, this was a good look at an old document that may be greatly important. (Even if it changes Christianity in no way, it changes our way of looking at the early churches and sects that sprouted up.)
