Ancient Manuscript Says Jesus was a Shapeshifter!
Scientists have translated an ancient Egyptian manuscript which describes Jesus as being a shapeshifter.
The manuscript in question is a 1200 year old Egyptian writing that was written in Coptic Egyptian. The recent release of the translation is highly controversial and is being picked up in news outlets because of its “retelling” of a different version of some events that Christians hold sacred.
Specifically, some of the controversy include the translation that says that the famous “last supper” was not on Thursday, but rather was on Tuesday. And, vastly more interesting, is the translation that describes Jesus as a shapeshifter.This reference is made when relating the story of the “kiss of Judas”.
For those not too familiar with Christian theology, the “kiss of Judas” refers to how Judas Iscariot kisses Jesus in order to identify him to soldiers, thus betraying Jesus and causing him be arrested. The most common reason given for the “betrayal of Judas”, is that Judas did it for 30 pieces of silver.
The Egyptian translation however has a slightly different reason for Judas’ betrayal…it says Judas does not kiss Jesus to get some silver, but for another reason altogether…because he is a shapeshifter and thus hard to identify! The text does not describe him as a werewolf, but rather someone that constantly changes appearance…here is what it says:
“Then the Jews said to Judas: How shall we arrest him [Jesus], for he does not have a single shape but his appearance changes. Sometimes he is ruddy, sometimes he is white, sometimes he is red, sometimes he is wheat coloured, sometimes he is pallid like ascetics, sometimes he is a youth, sometimes an old man …” Source

If you want to see the manuscript in person, it is currently on display in the “Treasures from the Vault” exhibit which run January 15 through May 5 2013 in the Morgan Library & Museum, New York.
