    One thought on “I, Judas

    1. Kathy Jackson on said:

      I don t know about most people but I was raised to believe Judas was a bad man The only thing that he did that stands out in history is betray Jesus at least to me and I always assumed he did it for the thirty pieces of silver Judas became the epitome of betrayal look up the word in the dictionary and his picture is probably there.Judas, a man who was part of the inner 12, those closest to Jesus throughout his adult life Judas, evil and deceitful Judas.But Caldwell changes my opinion of Judas ev [...]

    2. Chris on said:

      This is historical fiction during the last days of Christ Judas viewpoint Really makes you remember there are two or sides any event I also liked that Caldwell did a lot of research about locations, events and how people lived at that time.

    3. Hugh Centerville on said:

      I, Judas, a shocking for its time book about the ultimate betrayer This review is from I, Judas, Mass Market Paperback Edition I don t suppose it d be much of a spoiler, to tell you how this story comes out Jesus Christ is crucified and is buried and on the third day he rises again from the dead Sorry if I spoiled it for you but if you didn t already know how it went for Jesus, you maybe shouldn t read this book.If you like exposition as dialogue, you ll love the first forty or so pages of I, Ju [...]

    4. Harel on said:

      I m not Christian and this book just made me feel pagan Nevertheless, I do know about the bible since I was born in a Christian family Church makes us think Judas is a bad person However, after reading I, Judas , I started to realize that there are things we just believe because that s what people around us tells us It doesn t mean this book is trustworthy or not, but that the truth is scattered around the worldThere s a reason I m not Christian any The truth can be found in than a single way. [...]

    5. Paul Dinger on said:

      This book does have some deep faults, but despite them I still found it enjoyable It s best strength is the character fo Judas whom the human you make him, the ununderstandable his crime becomes It is also interesting for it s flesh and blood Jesus who comes across as very believable but hardly the prop of fundamentailists I found this to be an early excellent introduction to the Gospels but really shouldn t be taken in their place.

    6. Becky Speraw on said:

      Very well written and gripping This is a thought provoking presentation of Judas and his motivations I don t believe it is scriptural and I don t believe that it is factual Taylor Caldwell herself stated that often when she was writing, she was taken over by an unseen force, so don t fall for the belief that she has some deep insight into real truth She doesn t She s just an excellent writer and story teller.

    7. Ana on said:

      Es el 4 o 5 libro que leo de Taylor Caldwell y a pesar de que no es uno de mis favoritos debo confesar que es bueno Me gusta que a pesar de ser un tema de religi n ella, como en todos sus libros, no se enfoca en eso si no en la vida antes de que el personaje fuera destacado o importante Seguir leyendo.

    8. Greg on said:

      A very interesting perspective on a story steeped in traditional thinking We Christians often tend to vilify Judas as the ultimate villain and betrayer, and while this story does not alter the fact of his betrayal, it does offer some insight into alternate explanations for Judas s actions that are definitely food for thought I enjoyed this exercise in historical and spiritual speculation.

    9. Catherine on said:

      Like that the book presented the politics of the time and presented Christ as a political figure Not that he was looking to be that figure, but many of his followers were looking for the literal King of the Jews.

    10. Bonnie on said:

      This was a great book for me, a biblical neophyte It may not be exactly what s in the Bible, but it gave me incentive to read the real thing It was a good place to start.

    11. Luis Zamarro Fraile on said:

      5 estrellas.La prosa de Taylor Caldwell es cuativante, envolvente, adictiva, simplemente perfecta Yo Judas no es la excepci n, como una grande de la literatura la autora va desarrollando su visi n del mundo hasta reivindicar a uno de lo m s grandes villanos de la historia, brindando justicia y la m s alta dignidad al disc pulo m s incomprendido del cristianismo.Todos somos Judas.

    12. DW on said:

      I wasn t sure if this book was going to be Christian or something like Jesus Christ Superstar, telling the events and skewing the interpretation It turned out to be Christian, as far as I was concerned The only thing I didn t agree with was Jesus mentioning astrology.There were some liberties taken with the order of events putting Judas a few places that he wasn t, according to tradition and I m pretty sure Mary Magdalene was composited from three women A lot of the dialog seemed lifted straight [...]

    13. Max Nightjar on said:

      This author has dared to go beyond just fact and to look into the psyche of a man, and revolutionary to reveal the motive behind his betrayal and disloyalty to the Savior of all mankind This is not a retelling of the biblical account of Judas actions, because we all know that he threw the silver pieces on the ground and then hung himself This story is about why, even with faith and seeing or witnessing great miracles, a wo man chooses to commit one of the greatest sins in the world The betrayal, [...]

    14. Linda on said:

      I went through a period of picking out authors and reading all of their books My Caldwell period was right before I had my children and I read every night Taylor Caldwell was very descriptive and interesting in the way she took a lot of religious figures and made them into someone that went away feeling they really existed as she had written.

      El libro muy malo, pero las circunstancias de mi adolescencia en lo lei me marcaron bastante tartar de conseguir dinero vendiendo tarjetas de credito por Federalismo, Tlaquepaque finalmente aceptar dinero de mi mama lo que me traumo por a os , comrparlo en una libreria del centro el libro resuto ser lo de menos

    16. Rae on said:

      The story of Judas and thus Jesus from his point of view a zealot who saw Christ as the actual future king of the kingdom of Israel Judas betrayed Christ because he wouldn t lead the Jews to political victory The story is slow and a bit dry, but the information regarding the political turmoil and factions in Jerusalem at that time are quite enlightening.

    17. Kerry Quinlisk on said:

      I m not sure why I thought this book was worth keeping when I first read it in about 1980 It was contrived and took liberties and just was not enjoyable I usually like Caldwell, but this one was meh.

    18. Lee Anne on said:

      An amalgamated re telling of Scripture, some distorted or in error Recurring suggestions of reincarnation, not a Christian concept Hebrews 9 27 A disappointment after so enjoying Captains Kings At least there was resurrection at the end

    19. Adriana Diaz on said:

      Hasta ahora me gusta, me pierdo un poco en los detalles pero pensar en Judas dentro del plan de Dios cambia tu perspectiva completa de la vida, la historia excelentemente manejada con lujo de detalles, una seria investigacion de la epoca y la tradicion judia.

    20. María on said:

      Interesante la forma de ver las cosas que presenta desde el punto de vista de Judas Pero dif cilmente reconozco al Jes s del Evangelio en este libro Esperaba m s de la autora de M dico de cuerpos y almas

    21. Delia on said:

      Si no hubieras sido t , hubiera sido otro A n no cumpl a 13 a os cuando este libro cay en mis manos Lo devor.Es muy entretenido ya que en ning n momento se siente tediosa la lectura y brinda una nueva perspectiva Obvio es ficci n pero engancha e ilustra.

    22. Antonio Contreras on said:

      Buen libro que nos hace ver la vida de Judas el traidor desde otra perspectiva La perspectiva de un nacionalista y humana no la del malvado que nos ense aron desde peque os.
