There are two distinct narrative voices in this novel. One is a first-person account of Judas' life from childhood to dotage. It tells of his boyhood friendship with Jesus, of his difficult younger days, how he becomes a disciple of first John the Baptist and then Jesus and finally ends up as a rich merchant in Mesopotamia. It is there he writes the first gospel.

The other voice belongs to Dr Murray Watkins, a biblical scholar and finder of `the Judas Texts' in early 21st Century Iraq, shortly before the invasion of that country. Through a series of "essays" he tells of the finding of the texts, of what they tell us and of the significance of this find.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Enjoyed this a great deal. A first-hand account of the life of Judas Iscariot interspersed with academic writings from the finder of the 'Judas Gospel'. These interludes quote fragments of the gospel itself and, among other things, discuss the extent to which it might have influenced the gospels that appear in the Bible we know. I don't want to say more because to do so must inevitably involve spoilers. Recommended as an interesting and thought-provoking read. SAM KATES, author of the Earth Haven and Elevator trilogies, on WATERSTONES

When I posted the cover of Tom East’s Gospel according to St. Judas on my Facebook wall, one of my friends reacted by writing, “I will not believe a word written in his gospel ….” I didn’t know whether she referred to... More
