Gospel of Judas : SHOCK, HORROR there's hardly a story!
It's great that a new Gnostic Gospel (The Gospel of Judas
) gets noticed by the press, makes a change from people finding David's first alphabet book and Cleopatra's pillow
. But, the US media, to judge by fellow bloggers' posts, and the NZ media (I've seen TVNZ and the NZ Herald coverage so far), have sensationalised the story (of the Gnostic Gospel of Judas) out of all contact with reality.
So, I'm delighted that I can feel a warm glow of pride in the country of my birth, the BBC has what looks and sounds a good solid, sensible take on the in-famous Gospel of Judas. Even the headline is sensible "Not so secret gospels
"! I'm proud of Aunty, and her podcasts of interesting World Service programmes
is also good. [Cue recording of "Rule Britannia" from the Last Night of the Poms
- with Kiri Te Kanawa singing of course, so I can be all patriotic about NZ too!]
