They wrongly think that God requires suffering and sacrifice. But the author of The Gospel of Judas — and others within the early movement as well — was asking question like this: What does such teaching make of God?

    I have a copy of this on my shelves, and I've looked at a few passages, but really want to read the whole thing one of these days. Fine teaser!
