It seems a good time to look at Judas whose very name has come to mean the betrayer. The backstabbing friend the most reviled man in history. Long ago the bible was not as it is today. Many of the books were removed because of various reasons. Women were pretty much obliterated with any of the books dealing with them and the book of Judas newly discovered was also removed. If this is true then it puts into perspective other tales about people. Anything can be twisted even the noblest of deeds.
