Background[ edit ] First page evangelium judas the Gospel of Judas Page 33 of Codex Tchacos A leather-bound Coptic language papyrus document that surfaced during the s, near Beni Masar, Egypt[1] was named the Codex Tchacos after an antiquities dealer, Frieda Nussberger-Tchacos, who became concerned about the deteriorating condition of the manuscript.

Jesus was sent as the Son of the true God, not of one of the lesser gods. His mission was to show that salvation lies in connecting with the God within the man.

Through embracing the internal God, the man can then return to the imperishable realm.
