What would be the synthesis message of the gospel of the apostle Judas?
Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.
Judas Iscariot is another very interesting case. Actually this Apostle never betrayed Jesus the Christ; he only played a role, and this was taught to him by his Master, Jesus, of his.
The Cosmic Drama, the life, passion and death of our Lord the Christ, was represented since ancient times by all the Great Avatars.
Such a Drama was brought to Earth by the Elohim. Any man who seeks the Intimate Self-Realization of the Being, will have to live it and become the central character on the cosmic scene.
Thus, each of the twelve Apostles of Jesus of Nazareth had to play his role on the scene. Judas did not want to play the role that was given to him; he requested the role of Peter, but Jesus already had firmly established the part that each disciple had to represent.
The role that Judas played had to be memorized, and he was taught to him by his Master.

Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".
Judas represents the death of the ego, the self, the myself, the oneself. The Gospel of Judas teaches the death of our psychological defects, without Judas there is no cosmic drama. That is why he hanged himself, to teach us that the ego must die and become ashes. Each of the apostles of Christ teaches a gospel, in total there are twelve gospels, in the Hebrew Bible there are only four. Humanity was deprived of the knowledge of the other eight. Judas learned the role given to him thoroughly and played it publicly so that the Cosmic Drama would play out according to the scriptures.
In Christic esotericism Judas represents the demon of desire, Pilate represents the demon of the mind, and the High Pontiff Caiaphas allegorizes that of ill will. Behold the three traitors of Christ Jesus; these being the equivalent of the three gorgons of Greek mythology or the three furies of Dante's divine comedy. These three traitors live at the bottom of our psychology and constantly betray our particular intimate Christ. Judas betrays Christ for thirty silver coins, this is symbolic, 3 + 0 = 3 in the material aspect represent the pleasures of the sensual world and the mind, worldly riches, vices and the humanity’s passions.
If we want to understand the Gospel of Judas, we must read Zacarias, there it is said that with those 30 coins the land for a pantheon was bought, which is symbolic; we require cosmic capital to bury our psychological defects, which we obtain by working on the three factors of the revolution of consciousness.
Inside us there is a Judas, but not the one who exchanges the Christ for thirty pieces of silver, no! A Judas who teaches us in everything related to the death of our psychological defects, is one of the twelve powers that are part of our real inner Being.
