I feel that the National Geographic presentation of the Judas Gospel was an excellent source of historical information. It gave me a better understanding of the different sects which composed the early followers of Christ and made it more clear to me why this gospel was not included in the more orthodox writings of our Bible.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
