Judas, Jesus: A Dangerous Liaison
What would have happened if Judas hadn’t betrayed Jesus? Would the Son of God have died? Would Christianity have been born? According to the Church’s theologians and the apostles, the Son of God had to die to bring salvation to the world. Without Judas, this Divine plan would have never been accomplished. Moreover, did this plan really have to be realized by means of betrayal? And why did Judas remain a «disciple of the Son of God» until the end? In this striking work, the author examines the complicity between Jesus and Judas, setting aside the Church’s preconceived opinion of the latter. Abécassis explores the four gospels in depth, revealing who Judas really was or, more exactly, what he represented.
