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.
