Summary of the Book

This book challenges the traditional Christian belief that Judas Iscariot was a traitor who betrayed his master Jesus Christ. Citing Biblical, traditional and historical sources, the author argues that the biblical betrayal story was just an attempt by the authors of the gospels to give a plausible description to a mysterious scandal in the earthly ministry of Jesus, which was beyond human understanding, logic and loyalty.

Born in Nagercoil, TamilNadu, India, to Catholic parents Francis and Veronical in 1956, Swami Dhason Francis had a Ph.D in Biblical Interpretation from the School of ­ Theology, Almeda University, Idaho, USA. He is currently working as an English professor in Margeb University, Libya. His first novel “­ The Iago Trial” appeared in 2010 and his play “The Betrayed Disciple” was published in 2013 by Notion Press.

About the Author

Swami Dhason Francis distinguishes himself with a passionate sense of spirituality, philosophical reasoning and unparalleled knowledge of religious doctrines. This study demonstrates his tremendous philosophical understanding and the ability to synthesize apparently disconnected pieces of information in order to develop advanced hypotheses that make predictive statements. The methodology and analysis are among the best I have encountered in my experience as a Professor of Religion and Theology. I believe that the compelling examination of such a formidable subject area reveals a scholarly mind determined to make a profound contribution to the field of Biblical Interpretation.
