Another Long-Lost Gospel to be Released

With all the media attention surrounding the publication of the Gospel of Judas, it's no wonder that news about another ancient document that sheds light on the historical Jesus and early Christianity has been overshadowed. Thanks to Doug Groothuis for announcing the release of the Gospel of Brutus. But don't click that link yet!

Princeton religion professor Elaine Pagels, a consultant on the publication of the Gospel of Judas, has an op-ed piece in today's New York Times. I found reading it first, greatly aided my understanding of Groothuis's report. I recommend that you read them in that order as well.
