The Gospel of John


I did a small side project the other day. In short, I "rewrote" the The Gospel of John (Jóhannesarguðspjall), making Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene change roles, so instead of Jesus walking on water, being crucified, and so on, it's Mary. I also changed the gender of God, some of "Mary's" apostles, and did some other alterations to the ancient text.

Forlagið published it as an ebook. It can also be purchased here.

Here are some interviews and some news about the book, everything in Icelandic: Pressan, DV, and Fréttablaðið.
