A codex of the ‘Gospel of Judas’ has been authenticated and is considered the most significant nonbiblical text found in the past half century.

The discovery of the leather-bound Coptic codex was announced by the National Geographic Society at a news conference in Washington today. The 26-page Judas text is said to be a papyrus copy made around 300AD, of the original ‘Gospel of Judas,’ written in Greek the century before.

Scholars from Harvard, Princeton, and various other graduate schools with Coptic and Gnostic Studies divisions are interviewed in the NYT (here).
