Chapter Summary

The academic debate that emerged after the release of the original English translation of the Gospel of Judas and then its Critical Edition attests to the fact that this gospel is filled with passages that challenge interpreters. The role played by numerology in the expression of fundamental aspects of early Christian thought is widely acknowledged. The Gospel of Mark, which normally is quite vague in providing the temporal settings of the episodes it records, sets out the events of Jesus last daysfrom Jesus entrance in Jerusalem to the announcement of his resurrectionin an articulated chronological frame. It is remarkable that the Gospel of Judas, even if it does not consist in a narration of actions, is quite scrupulous in providing the temporal context of the revelations it includes.
