It may not change my belief but in a way, it has changed how I viewed Judas as the bad character yet it may not have been intentional but by the fact that it was his role to play.

Probably no Cain, either. These are all just stories. Great stories, but not history.

No, this book did not change my religious beliefs at all. While I do believe that there are some pieces missing in the Bible (as some verses contradict each other), I still believe that Judas Iscariot is Jesus' traitor. I found that the author calling other religions fictitious was offensive; every religion is faith-based. No religion can be proved with certainty, as no one here on Earth that was alive then is alive now to tell us what happened. I felt that this book had some eye-openers, but I do not think those that have strong faith should be reading this book as they may get offended.

I said the New Testament is fictional. And it is. I have no idea what your religion is. Doesn't matter. The truth is what it is. We just have to look for what that is. Don't expect to find it in the New Testament. It's Church propaganda.

What is to fear for believers? If faith is that soft, maybe it is no good to start with.

A book can never change my religious belief. Whatsoever the author think about Judas, that's his ideology. We all know Judas is a betrayer.

If you are Christian, one already did. My book is not about faith or beliefs. It is about how to see proof that 'Judas' was James.

This book can't change my religious beliefs and my view on Judas as traitor, if the author actually understand Judas as described in the Bible, he must give a reason why he committed suicide.

Which way, hanging or falling to the ground? We have two contrary versions, you know. :)

The author's believe and objectives are there in the book, but not convince he has deep understanding of his claims.

Well, I do. But the important thing to see is the quite obvious logic. Do YOU really think, and I'm serious, that all these parallel verses, gnostic to canon, just happened by chance? Why couldn't Gospel writers just write from an historical account IF THERE WAS ONE? I prove that it only could have been one way, gnostic first, canon later. This is vitally important. Ask any gay person, or woman, who lives under antiquated Christian rules in our modern society.

The author may be right in his own way, but have no respect for others believe, which made him not so accepted with many reason.

The book has nothing to do with someone's faith as long as he or she has a strong faith.
