Hi everyone --

I've done some reading on Borges' great story, "Three Versions of Judas."

This is meta-realistic fiction at its best. (There really was a Basilides who represented a version of Gnostic thinking in second century Alexandria; but we know him only through secondary sources which offer conflicting reports of the theology he taught. Wow.)

My question is this. In the story, the character who presents the versions of Judas is Nils Runeberg, a turn of the century scholar. What kind of person is Nils Runeberg? That name is most intriguing... parse it out: nil, rune, berg....

How does the speaker want us to think about Runeberg, that part of the gospel, and the truth that Christianity has to offer?
