Why we should know our History

Why we should know our history…

First off thanks to Stephen Shields blog for pointing this out.

I find it a bit funny that “scholars” have just decided that the Gospel of Judas was not written by Judas… uhhh no duh,

1. He killed himself!


B. Irenaeus wrote about this so called Gospel of Judas a long, long, long, long time ago.

Chapter XXXI.-Doctrines of the Cainites.
1. Others again declare that Cain derived his being from the Power above, and acknowledge that Esau, Korah, the Sodomites, and all such persons, are related to themselves. On this account, they add, they have been assailed by the Creator, yet no one of them has suffered injury. For Sophia was in the habit of carrying off that which belonged to her from them to herself. They declare that Judas the traitor was thoroughly acquainted with these things, and that he alone, knowing the truth as no others did, accomplished the mystery of the betrayal; by him all things, both earthly and heavenly, were thus thrown into confusion. They produce a fictitious history of this kind, which they style the Gospel of Judas.”

To me this was a non-issue… it was not a new gospel, but a heresy that had been found… and once again, it was found wanting…
