The book I have just started reading is called;
'The Thirteenth Apostle'
Written by April D DeConick.
Inspired by the National Geographics release of the first English translation in 2006, of the gospel of Judas, a second- century text that was discovered in Egypt in the 1970s.
Her fully revised and updated version edition, includes two new chapters 'Judas the star' and 'The Magic Judas' She brings a new and accurate perspective on the subject of Judas the apostle and friend of Jesus, who becomes the one who finally betrays Jesus.
'The Thirteenth Apostle' has generated fresh debate about this imfamous Biblical figure of Judas.
