Judas by Amos Oz
The author begins this novel with the story of Shmuel, a university drop-out in today's Jerusalem whose interrupted dissertation is about Jewish views of Jesus. The book jacket tells "At once an exquisite love story and a coming-of-age novel, Judas offers a surprising perspective on the state of Israel and the biblical tale from which it draws its title." As the story unfolds we are forced to consider what is a traitorous, both in the time of Jesus and in the present day . It is a particularly interesting approach since Oz himself has been called a traitor by some in Israeli politics.
