Synopsis:The Gospel of Judas: On a Night with Judas Iscariot presents a fresh translation of the Gospel of Judas, with introduction, commentary, and notes. Originally published with considerable international fanfare in 2006, the Gospel of Judas has prompted a vibrant discussion among scholars and other interested readers about the meaning of the text and the place of Judas Iscariot in the story of Jesus and the history of the church. Meyer, a member of the original research team assembled by the National Geographic Society to edit, translate, and publish the Gospel of Judas and the remaining texts in what is now called Codex Tchacos, here offers an up-to-date and thoroughly accessible translation of the Gospel of Judas, expanded with new fragments of the text and informed by the latest scholarship. He adds reminiscences of the work on the Coptic text when it first was coming to light in 2005 and 2006. This book also includes reflections on the extensive literature, beyond the Gospel of Judas, on the figure of Judas Iscariot, with suggestions for a literary interpretation of Judas--an interpretation that may have a dramatic impact upon our understanding of the role of Judas Iscariot in the story of Jesus’s passion.Endorsements:'Marvin Meyer can justly be considered the premier translator of ancient Gnostic writings in North America and one of the world’s leading experts on the Gospel of Judas. Now he provides a vivid and compelling translation of this most important text along with an insightful introduction and copious notes. Most intriguing of all, he narrates a theatrical engagement with issues that emerge from recent reflections on the world’s most infamous and intriguing ’villain,’ Judas Iscariot. This is intense scholarship and creative imagination at the highest level.'-Bart D. EhrmanUniversity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill'Marvin Meyer has a track record of a series of serious academic publications that are both readable and reliable, which distinguished tradition The Gospel of Judas continues on the same high plane.'-James M. RobinsonClaremont Graduate University'Beginning with the Nag Hammadi library, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Gospel of Judas, we have a trinity of essential holy scriptures that radically enrich and alter our knowledge of Judaism, Christianity, and Gnosticism. Now with his definitive version of Judas and its latest fragments, Marvin Meyer bequeaths the world a benevolent Judas. Meyer provides a crisp literary translation and introduction to the fully annotated Judas text--as well as a surprise: ’A Night with Judas Iscariot.’ In his profoundly funny and thoughtful mystery play, Judas stars as the redemptive figure. Hurrah for this revolutionary book with its poetic enlightenment!'-Willis Barnstoneauthor of The Restored New Testament and The Other BibleAuthor Biography:Marvin W. Meyer is Griset Professor of Bible and Christian Studies at Chapman University and Director of the Chapman University Albert Schweitzer Institute.

Among his recent books are Judas: The Definitive Collection of Gospels and Legends about the Infamous Apostle of Jesus (2007), The Gnostic Discoveries (2005), and The Gnostic Gospels of Jesus (2005), and he has edited or co-edited Essential Gnostic Scriptures (2010), The Nag Hammadi Scriptures: The International Edition (2007), and The Gospel of Judas (2006). 3
