Eucharistie und Opfer. Das ,,Evangelium des Judas“ im Kontext von Eucharistiedeutungen des zweiten Jahrhunderts
Abstract:This article is an attempt to understand the metaphor of sacrifice in the Gospel of Judas in the context of 2nd century interpretations of the Eucharist. According to 2nd century sources, the “sacrifice” represents thanksgiving to the Creator God. It is against these notions that the author of the Gospel of Judas propagates the “sacrifice” of Judas, which deceives the Creator: He only gets the empty fleshly body of the Saviour.

The journal is concerned with early Christianity as a historical phenomenon. Thereby, Early Christianity aims to overcome certain limitations which have hindered the development of the discipline, including the concept of the "New Testament" itself. The journal, then, is taken to cover not only the first Christian century but also the second.
This journal will not, however, give any special prominence to reception-history or to the second century. The total phenomenon called "early Christianity" comprises a kaleidoscopic range of individual phenomena, including communal structures, social norms, discursive practices, points of conflict, material remains, and much else – far more than just the production and reception of texts. This journal will strive to reflect this multiplicity of contexts, in the expectation of new light on our subject-matter from a variety of angles.
