Gospel of Judas

Will National Geographic's exclusive rights to this ancient codex turn into a media circus? NGS may be hoping so. A little showboating can be good for fundraising.

I don't doubt that the Society has had some top scholars working on the manuscript. But as I've blogged earlier, I distrust having scientific revelations made in such a splashy manner. The secrecy is unseemly, and increases the risk that NGS will embarrass themselves, if their inner circle of scholars has missed something that outsiders might have caught. We'll soon see, I suppose.
