    My Name Was Judas eBook ß My Name Epub / name pdf, judas pdf, My Name book, My Name Was Judas eBook My original review of this book was done in 2007 really a very short review see below that said very little about the book Nevertheless on the basis of it I was invited by the BBC to submit a question for their World Book Club programme they were doing on CK Stead I was most delighted when they used it Here it isThis work of fiction tells an alternative story of Jesus and Judas of a boyhood together followed by the path to Jerusalem and for Judas beyond to a life far away with a new nameKnowing the Christian story I found it hard to figure o

    My Name Was Judas eBook ß My Name Epub / name pdf, judas pdf, My Name book, My Name Was Judas eBookWell It was fairly well written I suppose except for the inclusion of several comments in the modern idiom ie 'Jesus was intellectually superior but socially on the back foot' and Judas says 'the wheels were falling off our collective enterprise' there are also modern expletives that I felt sure were not used in those daysI had not heard of Stead and therefore had no preconceived ideas about his work but I found this to be someone who is simply having a go at Christian belief ironic that his name is Christian The author seems to be of the Monty Python school of thought that 'Jesus was not the Messiah but a very naughty boy' He has made up an entire childhood about which we know very little depicting Jesus as a precocious arrogant and unkind person except when trying to charm the crowds that followed Him Judas is depicted as not a bad chap at all and a voice o

    My Name Was Judas eBook ß My Name Epub / name pdf, judas pdf, My Name book, My Name Was Judas eBookHard to know what to make of this story really It is all well written but so much at odds to the Christian story that it is an uncomfortable read Stead is of course just making all this up there is no evidence for any of it However he writes a very plausible account He makes Judas and Jesus as childhood friends from slightly different sides of the donkey path as it were This makes it possible for the gospel story to be demystified and we have a very earthly and earthy retelling of Jesus life That is going to appeal to many and horrify others

    My Name Was Judas eBook ß My Name Epub / name pdf, judas pdf, My Name book, My Name Was Judas eBookhmm well i like the book in a sense that it's nicely written fairly interesting and kept you going but also i couldn't take it as a possible historical report which is not i tried to put myself into a Christian shoes and it must be pretty offensive to read this although you do sympathize to Judas the supposedly 'betrayer' and the 'healing' that Jesus did make sense if it isn't being interpreted literally but i guess i'm biased towards Jesus and for me it was strange that everything that he did was being rationalized and him being dismissed as almost only as 'a mad man' although the writing was convincing but i've always been easily convinced and made you agree to it at times it felt like an atheist trying to argue through Judas's character but it also reminded me with another 'rationalizing' book which i think left deeper 'moving' moments the Secret Ma

    My Name Was Judas eBook ß My Name Epub / name pdf, judas pdf, My Name book, My Name Was Judas eBookThis was a surprising book for me I've not read CK Stead and had formed a rather negative view of him looks such a grumpy chap and I didn't expect it to be so CLEVER Well I was wrong This has been a standout The writing is extraordinarily clear and the concept cleverly executed Judas didn't betray Jesus he just got bad press and Christ was well a bit of a pain and the apostles weren't the brightest crayons in the box Not recommended for fundamentalist Christians

    My Name Was Judas eBook ß My Name Epub / name pdf, judas pdf, My Name book, My Name Was Judas eBookThis is a book that has been very thoughtfully written For myself this version seems far believable than the one in the bible But like I say that's just me

    My Name Was Judas eBook ß My Name Epub / name pdf, judas pdf, My Name book, My Name Was Judas eBookThis book presents the story of Jesus from the point of view of a seventy year old Judas who moved to Sidon after the crucifixion and led a peaceful life under a new name In this version Judas and Jesus were childhood friends who were taught by the same scholar the difference being that the father of Judas paid tuition fees while Andreas taught Jesus for free because the boy was incredibly handsome and promising In due course the charismatic Jesus became a successful itinerant preacher who was not above playing favorites with his followers Judas joined their ranks early because the death of his beloved wife in childbirth unmoored him and made him reliant of Jesus However as soon as Jesus gave signs that he believed himself to be the Messiah Judas started to feel very ambivalent about the whole thing Judas didn't wi

    My Name Was Judas eBook ß My Name Epub / name pdf, judas pdf, My Name book, My Name Was Judas eBookA fascinating character study of one of the most maligned men in history Very well written and thought provoking An interesting study of how faith cannot really be reconciled with a lack of understanding And how a viewpoint and the desire to believe without regarding reality can create legends and storiesI was prepared to be quite critical of the thesis of Judas surviving but found that his part being one of the 12 was perhaps than the chosen pawn to complete a destiny Intriguing and beautifully written

    My Name Was Judas eBook ß My Name Epub / name pdf, judas pdf, My Name book, My Name Was Judas eBookBeautiful novelThoughtful profound and humane a beautiful novel about the broken telephone that marks the difference between history and myth It should make the reader question every story you have ever been told If you haven't read Stead but you are an admirer of say Coetzee then this book is an excellent starting point
