Notes Cet article est fondé sur la version française de l'article publié en lithuanien : "Minios aukos ir Judo auka: aukojimo tema Judo evangelijoje", Alekniené T. et Akekna D., Saecuclo primo: Romos imperijos pasaulis peržengus "naujosios eros" slenkstį (Christiana Tempora III), Vilnius, 2008, p. 274-294.
Abstract Despite the few pages only which are dedicated to the sacrificial theme, it is important in the economy of the Gospel of Judas. The first time the author mentions sacrifices is within a list of actions accomplished by a crowd which may represent his opponents. The author probably diverts the use of the sacrificial language which is made in the other communities so as to criticize the rites and practices of his opponents, in particular eucharist, continence and maybe martyrdom. There may also be in the background an ecclesiological ciritism. The author uses sacrificial language for a second time in order to speak about the treason of Judas, and the question arises of the value granted to this act and to the figure of Judas.
