Judas As the Greatest Disciple of Jesus
Judas means one thing throughout literature and throughout the history of the Christian Church. - "Traitor." Dr. Yitzhaq I. Hayut-Man, working with the newly-discovered Judas Gospel published in 2006 by National Geographic Society, demonstrates Judas to be anything but a traitor. In those pages he is, instead, the disciple whom Jesus chooses for his moment of ecstasy and martyrdom on the cross. -- "But you will exceed all of them. For you will sacrifice the man that clothes me," Christ says to Judas in that Gospel. Christian Gnosis as the Basis for Understanding Judas
How could this traitor possibly be a saint? At the time of Christ and in the centuries afterward, Christianity faced a competing system known as Gnosis (which means "direct knowledge.") The Christian Church emphasizes doctrine. Gnosis emphasizes direct experience of the divine. In the light of Gnostic teachings, this disciple was capable of supreme acts of obedience and devotion. He was a direct knower of God and, as such, could be the one to do for Christ what no others would do.
As Christ says to Judas in the Judas Gospel, "You will become the thirteenth, and you will be cursed by the other generations (i.e. those of the disciples and of the orthodox Church) - and you will come to rule over them. In the last days they will curse your ascent (or transfiguration) to the holy [generation]."
The Qaballah As Source and Validity for Christian Gnosis If Gnosis were simply something new at the time of Christ, it might seem to be merely a movement that arose and failed. However, Hayut-Man shows, Gnosis is a later form of the widely known and respected Jewish Qaballah. The Christian Church may have repudiated mystical doctrines like those in the Judas Gospel, but the world has known them in many forms. And one of the best-known of all of those forms is the Jewish Qaballah.
Signaling Another Type of Apocalypse
Now may be the time of fulfillment for Christ's words, "you will come to rule over them." The Judas Gospel might usher in nothing less than an anti-Apocalypse, a new time of harmony and peace where Jews, Christians, and Muslims enjoy the direct experience of God through teachings in the Qaballah, in sacred Muslim writings, and - most clearly and most recently - in the 2000-year-old Gospel of Judas.

The 4th Trinity and the Gospel archetypes explored through Qabbalah Sep 6, 2007
I enjoyed the story of an ancient Judas Gospel, hidden in the sands of Egypt, discovered in our time, making it's torturous way to publication. Yes, it's worth reading, even for a first timer to criss-crossing cultural and historical references and mystical concepts.
It is the revealing of Judas through the Qabbalah (Kabbalah, Cabala) that kept me turning the pages. Hayut-Man suggests the recent publication of the Judas Gospel may have been planned by the Savior for our time.
The obscure Judas figure opens through historical research in to the Gospels, the Mysteries of the Jewish Qabbalah, with references to Gnostic knowledge, insights from Jung and Muslim architectural secrets.
Within these insights, the Traitor figure becomes the Insider and Secret Agent. Hayut-Man explains how and why the Judas is actually highly intelligent, singular in understanding his master's true intentions and remains under cover in fulfilling them. Secretly orchestrated by the Savior, with few but significant subtle messages, the Traitor plays a crucial role in the successful publishing of an intentionally Dramatic event, set to perpetually unfold through history, until the End Time.
The book also moves deeper within current debate around the possibility of a fourth secretly hidden figure within the Holy Trinity. The Church has obscured the unveiling of the Secrets, for centuries. Mystical Wisdom and the Fertile Divine Feminine, embodied as Earthly experience, points to current ecological and feminine considerations.
This book explains a much wider complexity surrounding early Gospel archetypes. And it does so more clearly than recent popular fictitious narratives.
According to The Truth About Judas, this late Gospels discovery and its provocative contents, point to a scenario of an End Time, in which we receive the original Wisdom, the Good News about Humanity, Earth and the Conclusive Historical Redemption.
From "traitor" to "Greatest Disciple". Jun 20, 2007
For 2,000 years the name of Judas was associated with the idea of "Judas the Traitor". Not only was he seen as a specific person but he also represented all of the Jews who were seen as traitors who betrayed Jesus to the Romans. For millennia, Jews have been branded, hounded, and slaughtered because of this association all throughout Christian countries. This :must be true" because that is what "The Gospels" say. BUT- That was only one of the Gospel narratives telling of the tale.
There is another "Gospel" that tells a very different story of what happened that day in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago. This Gospel was lost or hidden away on purpose. Through Divine Providence it has recently come to light. This is the Gospel story that Dr. Yitzhaq Hayut-Man explores in his revolutionary book: " The Thruth About Judas- Mysteries of The Judas Code Revealed" ( Waterside Publishing,2007).
Dr. Hayut-Man shows how we can see that by reading this new Gospel a very different view of Judas emerges. One who was the disciple who most understood the true mission of Jesus. We read how this same person who was seen as a "traitor" now becomes "The Greatest Disciple of Jesus". Dr. Hayut-Man provides a thorough analysis of the Gnosis and Quabbalah of the time and takes us through history until our present era. He shows us how and why an understanding of the Gospel of Judas can function as a blueprint for dealing with one of the most maddening and intense conflicts of our century and certainly of our generation: the Israel-Palestinian conflict.
- politicians are not able to resolve it; - generals are not able to solve it; - the international community is not able to deal with it;
-- A scholar-historian may yet be able to heal it.
Dr. Hayut-Man offers us an alternative to hatred and an opportunity for reconciliation, understanding, respect, and love.
Here is a hallmark event in the reconciliation of Christianity and Judaism and can put an end to at least many of the aspects of Anti-Semitism. It would allow Christians to benefit from Jewish mystical wisdom and allows Jews to see Jesus, not as a renegade but as a Tsadiq- (a holy person). May all Churches read it.
