Chapter Summary

The Apostle went forth to go whither our Lord had told him. And when he reached (the distance of) two miles, he turned aside from the road a little, and saw lying there a corpse of a handsome youth and said: "Was it for this trial you brought me out hither, our Lord? Let it be as you will". And when he had said these things, a black snake came forth from a fissure, and was shaking his head violently, and beating his tail on the ground. And Judas came to the city, and took the hand of the youth, and said to him: "My son, these things which you have seen are a few out of the many that belong to our God. And when Judas had said these things to the youth, great multitudes joined (them).
