Read My Name Was Judas

My Name Was Judas Read ð 104 Witty and teasingly controversial novel set against a richly painted backdrop of anc. Hard to know what to make of this story really It is all well written but so much at odds to the Christian story that it is an uncomfortable read Stead is of course just making all this up there is no evidence for any of it However he writes a very plausible account He makes Judas and Jesus as childhood friends from slightly different sides of the donkey path as it were This makes it possible for the gospel story to be demystified and we have a very earthly and earthy retelling of Jesus life That is going to appeal to many and horrify others
