Discuss the Gnostic gospels

Partly inspired by the discovery of a Coptic text that purports to be the Gospel of Judas, the Chronicle of Higher Ed will host an online discussion with Karen King, Harvard Divinity School professor and author of What is Gnosticism?, at noon today.

Among the topics to be addressed: “How are the so-called Gnostic gospels similar to the canonical books of the Bible? What elements in them led them to be branded as heretical?” Readers can post their own questions in advance.
