The Gospel According to St. Judas

And there were in that country shepherds abiding in the fields,
tending their flocks by night. The angel of the Lord appeared to them
and shone round about them and they were sore afraid. But the angel of
the Lord said, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you tidings of great
joy! For unto you is born this day in the city of Bethlethem a savior.
He is called Christ the Lord and he will being peace to all nations.
You will find him in a manger wrapped in swaddling clothes."

Sorely troubled, the brother shepherds did leave their flocks and go
the Bethlehem, and there did see all that the angel of the Lord had
foretold them. And thus did the chief among the shepherds speak,
saying, "Did not the angel of the Lord say that this child, the
savior, was born unto us? And born unto us as a child is born unto his
father's house, is not then this child beholden to us as a child is to
his father? For if this child is truly the bringer of peace, will he
not bring honor and glory to the house of his father by the slaying of
all the enemies of Israel?" And the others shepherds agreed, for it is
written that the heads of the enemies of Israel shall be the
foundation of the everlasting peace.

Thus did the shepherds take away the child and his mother, who was
called Mary, and teach the child well the ways of righteous anger and
of his destiny to slay all the enemies of Israel. And when in manhood
the child, who was called Jesus, did use the strength of the Lord to
work many miracles against the enemies of Israel and did thereby slay
them, unto the last woman, child and servant, great honor was brought
to the house of the shepherds.

And the chief among the shepherds was exalted above all men, and
became King Judas, mighty and wise.

  1. Sorry. As a believer in Christ, I don't get it.
