Craig Evans, a professor of New Testament studies at Acadia Divinity College in Nova Scotia, was part of the team that unveiled the Gospel of Judas last spring.

The document is written in Coptic script, an ancient Egyptian language. The document is written in Coptic script, an ancient Egyptian language.

“The big headline was in April that the text was discovered,” Evans said.

“The second big headline is right now: oops, maybe we misinterpreted it and we need to rethink it.”
