Gospel of Judas Finally Released by NGS

The most welcome news to me about this codex is this:

The material will be donated to the Coptic museum in Cairo, Egypt, so it can be available to all scholars, said Ted Waitt of the Waitt Institute for Historical Discovery, which helped finance the restoration.

No knock against National Geographic or their team of scholars, but I still think that the most valuable studies of this ancient manuscript are still to come. The power of aggregate expertise and all that, you know.

In the meantime, National Geographic has a quite cool interactive feature on the Gospel at their website.
