      Interesting. But note what the Braun's remark that Klassen's work is grounded
      in approaches to the Gospels that he did not invent and that were in place and
      were being used on the Gospels long before Klassen put pen to paper, does to
      your claim about no one before Klassen having ever engaged in the sort of
      critical work on the Gospels and the Judas tradition that Klassen has carried
      out in his book on Judas.
