31. So let me see if I understand this correctly...
They found a scroll called the Book of Judas which tells the story according to Judas? And people are surprised that Judas said that Jesus made him do it?

I wouldn't be surprised if Judas claimed to hear all kinds of voices in his head. But, I suppose that wouldn't be out of order for scriptures.

Getting to the point, I wouldn't be surprised if Judas even believed that Jesus asked him to turn Jesus in, but I would also surmise that Judas was rationalizing some severe guilt. Afterall, didn't Judas end his life because he couldn't live with the shame? And if so, that didn't leave him much time to pass his story on to someone.
