„Only Judas has guessed the master aright—and has discerned that he comes from the heavenly realm of the god "Barbelo."“

—  Jesus Jewish preacher and religious leader, central figure of Christianity -7 - 30 v.Chr

In the realm of Barbelo, it seems, earthly pains are unknown and the fortunate inhabitants are free from the attentions of the God of the Old Testament. Jesus himself is descended in some fashion from Adam's third son, Seth. With Judas' help, he hopes to guide the seed of Seth back to the realm of Barbelo.
