The Gurdjieff Journal - Fourth Way Perspectives
Article: The Judas Controversy

The Gospel of Judas portrays Judas as the foremost amongst the disciples, the only one capable of fully understanding Jesus' teaching. It also contradicts the orthodox idea that Judas betrayed Jesus. Instead, the Gospel of Judas seems to state that Judas surrendered Christ to the Romans at Jesus' direction. But since the publication of the original Coptic text of the Gospel of Judas a firestorm of controversy has erupted. Coptologist and biblical scholar April D. DeConick did her own translation and found some serious errors in the original National Geographic translation. According to DeConick's translation, Jesus condemns Judas as a demon. Now we are faced with two versions of this text; one portrays a "good" Judas and another portrays a demon. Academia is lining up behind DeConick, and accusations of fraud are being hurled about the normally staid community of Coptic scholars.

The discovery of the Gospel of Judas was especially of interest to those of us who study the teaching of G.I. Gurdjieff, because this newly discovered gospel seemed to be in agreement with what Gurdjieff wrote about Judas in All and Everything:

This Judas was not only the most faithful and devoted of all the near followers of Jesus Christ, but also, only thanks to his Reason and presence of mind all the acts of this Sacred Individual could form that result, which if it did not serve as the basis for the total destruction of the consequences of the properties of the organ Kundabuffer in these unfortunate three-brained beings, yet it was nevertheless, during twenty centuries the source of nourishment and inspiration for the majority of them in their desolate existence and made it at least a little endurable.

"22 October 1949. Paris. Bennett finds Gurdjieff at his cafe in the rue des Acacias. He is dressed in his coat with the astrakhan collar, sheepskin boots, a brown and red woolen scarf folded over his chest and his black astrakhan cap covering his head. His appearance - that of a sick old man - is shocking. He looks ill, his face very dark, the eyes sunken with black rings around them. Gurdjieff speaks of the future.

Bennett tells him that in his lectures he is saying that Beelzebub's Tales contains the key to understanding what mankind needs.

Gurdjieff nods in agreement and says, 'There is a war between the old world and the new. The next five years will decide. It is the beginning of a new world. Either the old world will make me 'Tchik' [squash me like a louse], or I will make the old world 'Tchik.' Then the new world can begin. From now on I need soldiers who will fight for me for the new world.'"

Quote from Georgi Ivanovich Gurdjieff: The Man, The Teaching, His Mission, page 458
