It is by far one of the most eye opening, thought provoking look into the man we all know as Judas, the betrayer. When you read this alternative to the narrative you will have much to ponder. You will not only look at Judas through different lenses but also Jesus.
I’ll never forget my pastors wife at the time commenting on Two From Galilee after she finished it. She didn’t think it was accurate for it showed a very human birth. We tend to forget Jesus was indeed human as was all the people in the Bible.
We know Jesus defied the Pharisee’s but do we really understand how much he was considered a rebel? He was not the first to be considered the Messiah, what made him different?
What motivated Judas? Did he intend to betray Jesus? What were the last few days and weeks like? Was the journey without some angst for Jesus? What were the thoughts and emotions? Did the disciples whisper and question amongst each other? These are just some of the questions you will only probe more as you read. Hopefully you will finish the book with more questions than answers, I know I did.
