One of the
few reliable source documents pertaining to the Gospel of Judas and the
other manuscripts that were associated with it is the eyewitness report
given by Steve Emmel. He wrote this report shortly after he briefly
examined the Coptic manuscripts that were offered for sale in a Geneva
hotel room on May 15 of 1983. The Greek manuscripts were examined by
Ludwig Koenen. Emmel and Koenen were unable to purchase the
manuscripts, as the $50,000 at their disposal was insufficient to match
the $3,000,000 selling price.
Steve Emmel's report has been published by
James Robinson on pages 117-120 of "The Secrets of Judas," which was
published in April of 2006. A listing of the "Geneva Wares," according
to Steve Emmel, is as follows.
