Judas Iscariot's name has been synonymous with treachery and he's one of the most hated men in history. The Gospel of Judas: Revealed revisits an ancient gospel, found in Egypt, which had been hidden for nearly 2,000 years. It tells a different story of Christ's betrayal with the villain as the hero. A team of biblical detectives, in a race against time, set out to determine whether or not 'the Gospel of Judas' is a fake before it crumbles into dust.
