      Hi, Nick.

      April DeConick does address the article you linked in one her recent posts of "The Forbidden Gospels Blog" at her website.

      Importantly, she is not alone in her criticisms.  And she has repeatedly emphasized in her blog posts how she is coming from a scholarly view,... not a theological one, not a liberal vs. conservative one, not a political one, in spite of some of her critics trying to place her in various camps, in addition to emotional issues surrounding this whole Judas topic in general.

      Here is one Dr. DeConick's latest articles at the Society of Biblical Literature:

      ("More on the Gospel Truth")
