There are two distinct narrative voices in this novel. One is a first-person account of Judas' life from childhood to dotage. It tells of his boyhood friendship with Jesus, of his difficult younger days, how he becomes a disciple of first John the Baptist and then Jesus and finally ends up as a rich merchant in Mesopotamia. It is there he writes the first gospel.

The other voice belongs to Dr Murray Watkins, a biblical scholar and finder of `the Judas Texts' in early 21st Century Iraq, shortly before the invasion of that country. Through a series of "essays" he tells of the finding of the texts, of what they tell us and of the significance of this find.
