For the first time in a single volume, discover the complete text of Codex Tchacos—the remarkable ancient papyrus book that contains the Gospel of Judas. Hidden for 1,600 years in an Egyptian cave, only to be found, traded, and all but destroyed before its restoration began in 2001, Codex Tchacos contains four texts that shed important light on the ancient world and the emergence of Christianity.

Ideal for the scholar and layperson alike, these texts are published by an international team of scholars and supplemented by insightful introductions, indices, and other revealing, explanatory essays.
