Great to see you around, InLove! Judas hung himself, eh? Where is that info written? I don't see anything wrong with taking a look at the Gospel of Judas. Really, though the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of Mary aren't canonical, I really enjoyed the reading - especially the Gospel of Thomas. Unfortunately, there's a lot of stuff missing from the Gospel of Judas because of the deterioration. From the little bit I got it seems to be very, very different from anything I have yet to read. According to the show aired on National Geographic, there is a speculation that the church authorities chose the 4 canons because of all the scrutiny that the church was under during the time the NT was being put together. The 4 Gospels are in sync and the Epistles of Paul helps form the church. I guess when the early church was going through such serious tests of faith, there couldn't be wavering information. Good move.
