On Nov 17, I posted my take on the proposal by April DeConick about the Gospel of Judas (the string of discussion started on Oct 27 and 28). Today (Dec 1) in the New York Times she posted an editorial laying out her view that Judas is seen negatively in the book. The debate rotates around how a few passages in the Coptic are read.Her point about how this text was made public is very correct. However her read of Judas appears to be unlikely given that Judas is the only figure to give correct answers in the book as well as Irenaeus's report about how this book takes Judas as a positive figure.Nonetheless, the editorial is worth checking out. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/01/opinion/01deconink.html?_r=2&th&emc=th...
