In 2006, the National Geographic Society published the first English translation of The Gospel of Judas, a second-century Gnostic document that may be one of the oldest early Christian manuscripts yet discovered. Not only does it present a different perspective of Judas from what is given in the Bible, but it also sheds new light on the early development of the Church and the issues it faced. Beyond that, it may also give us a perspective on whistle-blowers relevant in present times.
George Lindamood was a member of the first class of National Merit Scholars in 1955, earned his B.S., magna cum laude, in mathematics and physics and then went on to graduate study in mathematics before becoming seduced by computers. After retiring from a 42-year international career in information technology, almost evenly divided among academia, business, and government, he began study of religion at the Emerson Theological Institute, where he was ordained in 2006 and received a doctorate in 2011. In addition to the world’s religions, his interests include developmental psychology, spirituality in its broadest sense, and music. George has three children (agnostic, Buddhist, and Roman Catholic), a granddaughter who is an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of the Chippewa tribe and is proud to have once won 2nd prize in a talent show for his one-man-band act (piano, trumpet and drums).
