Description

The Gospel According to Judas, by Benjamin Iscariot, sheds new light on the mystery of Judas (including his motives for the betrayal and what happened to him after the crucifixion) by retelling the story of Jesus through the eyes of Judas, using the canonical texts as its basic point of reference. Ostensibly written by Judas' son, Benjamin, and following the narrative style of the Gospels, this re-creation is provocative, compelling, and controversial.

The Gospel According to Judas, by Benjamin Iscariot, is the result of an intense collaboration between a storyteller and a scholar: Jeffrey Archer and Francis J. Moloney. Their brilliant work, bold and simple, is a compelling story for 21st-century readers, while maintaining an authenticity that would be credible to a first-century Christian or Jew.

A Macmillan Audio production.

Reader reviews

  • (4/5)
    Good novelistic attempt to re-tell the story of Jesus of Nazareth through the eyes of Judas. Not an orthodox view of Jesus, but raises questions about the narratives of the four gospels. Frank Maloney (co-author) said his aim was to get people to look again at Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Imaginative presentation with gilt-edged pages and traditional use of red ink makes the book a delight to hold.
  • (3/5)
    Interesting blend of storytelling & facts, plus great packaging. Looks like a leather journal, pages are gilded on edge, ribbon to mark your place like in bibles.
  • (4/5)
    A mock-biography written in the "as told to" format, Jeffrey Archer creates a Judas who is vastly different from the cowardly traitor most of us met in Sunday School. This Judas is beloved of Jesus, and follows Jesus' instructions. It was an enjoyable read, and a quick one.
  • (3/5)
    Not terribly impressed with this one. The writing is relatively flat & the majority of Judas' "story" is just a recount of the events told in the other gospels. As a refresher of Jesus' life, this may fit the bill, but there's nothing spectacular about the writing. The ending offers another possible interpretation of Judas post-crucifixion, which may or may not be plausible, but that in itself wasn't enough to make this book memorable for me.
