Reaching for a piece of the sacred story, Russian pilgrims at St. Catherine's Monastery in the Sinai grab the lowermost branches of a bush from which God first spoke to Moses, according to tradition. In the struggle between competing versions of Christianity that occurred during the first centuries after Jesus' death, orthodox ideas won out over Gnostic ones. These pilgrims are heirs not of the Christians who wrote the Gospel of Judas but of those who denounced that same text as heresy.
