Fifth Gospel found

Having studied the historical Jesus a little bit in college (I was most convinced by the theory that Jesus' thinking was eschatological, expecting the world to end within a few decades), this fascinates me: The Gospel of Judas has been found and translated, the NY Times announced today. In this fifth gospel, Jesus asks Judas, his best disciple, to "betray" him and hand him over to those who will crucify him -- which strikes me as news, though apparently some scholars had figured as much even before this text surfaced.
