Long-Lost Gospel of Judas Becomes Topic at Creighton Forum

Cutting through the media hype and hoopla of the recent discovery of a long-lost Gospel of Judas, will be the topic of a forum given by Fr. William Harmless, S.J., and John O’Keefe Ph.D. from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, April 24, in the Humanities Center room 306.

Fr. Harmless and O’Keefe will be taking a clear look at the text itself, not only the fascinating story of its discovery and reconstruction, but also its Gnostic origins, contents, and context. Both are specialists in the history and theology of early Christianity. Fr. Harmless is the author of Desert Christians: An Introduction to the Literature of Early Monasticism. O’Keefe is the chairman of Creighton’s Department of Theology and the author of Sanctified Vision: An Introduction to Early Christian Interpretation of the Bible. The forum is free and open to the public. For more information contact Fran Minear at 280-2303.
