Judas of Gamala, also called Theudas was a Galilean revolutionary around 4-5 BC.
In those days, Palestine had a quick succession of fire-brand leaders who set themselves up as the deliverers of their country and sometimes even as the Messiah.
When Judas of Gamala first raised the standard of rebellion, he marched on Sepphoris, a few miles N of Nazareth, seized the arsenal there and for a brief time triumphed, until Varus, the Roman general, defeated him, burned Sepphoris to the ground, and sold its inhabitants into slavery.

Judas of Gamala (Ant., XVIII, i, l) is also called Judas of Galilee (ibid., i, 6).
If Gamala, far down the eastern shore of the sea, were in Galilee, a fortiori Bethsaida, a town which lay on the very edge of the Jordan, may be described as in Galilee.
Even if Judas were born in Gamala, and so might properly be called a Gaulonite, he may, like others, have come to be known as belonging to the province in which his active life was spent.

Zealotry was a movement in first century Judaism, described by Josephus as one of the "four sects" at this time.
This view is contradicted, however, by the fact that Hezekiah, the father of Judas the Galilean, had an organized band of so-called "robbers" which made war against the Idumean Herod ("B. J." i.

Judaism guides its adherents in both practice and belief, and has been called not only a religion, but also a "way of life," which has made drawing a clear distinction between Judaism, Jewish culture, and Jewish nationality rather difficult.
Hebrew is the liturgical language of Judaism (termed lashon ha-kodesh, "the holy tongue"), and is the language of the State of Israel.
Most believe that the land on which the State of Israel now exists was the birthplace of Judaism in the 10th century BCE or earlier, although some scholars dispute this.

 Christianity Without Jesus – Hero of the People   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
In the year 6 AD a Judas of Gamala, otherwise known as the Galilean, and a Pharisee called Zadok, denounced Roman taxation as slavery and began a widespread insurrection.
Judas, it seems, was the author of the "fourth branch of Jewish philosophy", Pharisaic in all essentials and recognizing only God as Lord.
Judas himself appears to have been a member of a curious family dynasty of rebels who continued to lead a resistance movement at least until the defeat of 70 AD.

 Essenes (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia) :: Bible Tools
The earliest note of the existence of the Essenes, as of the Pharisees and Sadducees, is under the pontificate of Jonathan, the successor of Judas Maccabeus (Ant., XIII, v, 9).
The next is the story of Judas the Essene seated in the Temple surrounded by his scholars "who attended him (paremenon) in order to learn the art of foretelling," thinking that the appearance of Antigonus in the Temple courts proved his prophecy false that he was that day to die in Strato's tower (Caesarea).
Judas is evidently a resident in Jerusalem and meets his pupils in the Temple courts.

With the territory now annexed to Syria Quirinus decided he ought to know who was who and where they resided so he set about organizing a census and this is the census that Luke mistakenly dates as the year of Jesus birth.
The census was marked by a civil unrest in Jerusalem, an attack on Herod's Palace and an uprising in Galilee led by Judas of Gamala whose HQ was at Sepphoris, just a short distance from Nazareth.
In his youth Jesus more than likely had subjected himself to the Nazarite oath of fasting, abstinence and chastity but he was not to become a Zealot because he came to believe in a God of divine providence.

Some modern studies (e.g., E. Sanders) have objected to the assumption that Intertestamental Judaism, including the Pharisaism, believed in a "wage price-theory of righteousness," that eternal life is granted on the basis of faithfulness in keeping the Law.
Intertestamental Judaism was far from a monolithic whole; many, if not most, of the common people, who were influenced by the Pharisees, seem to have held a legalistic way of viewing their religion.
Josephus calls Judas a "leader" (hegemon) and "sophist" (saphistes.)(9) Of the latter term Schürer says, "This description marks out Judas as a teacher with his own distinctive interpretation of Torah" (emphasis mine).(10) This means that Judas, along with numerous other Intertestamental Jewish groups, held to his own set of traditions alongside the written text.

 CADRE Comments: Luigi Cascioli's frivolous claims in the Italian Jesus lawsuit
That the figure of Jesus has been fully constructed over a certain John of Gamala, son of Judas from Gamala, known as the Galilean, is irrefutably known by such a great number of proofs as to remove whatever doubts about the falsifications carried out by the compilers of the Gospels.
Apparently John of Gamala is the main character in a book of historical fiction named "For the Temple", and takes the role of a figure in the Jewish rebellion against the Romans in 70AD.
It thus appears that "John of Gamala" was invented by George Alfred Henty in 1888 for the purposes of his novel.

Cascioli, a lifelong atheist, claims that Righi violated two Italian laws by making the assertion: so-called "abuse of popular belief" in which someone fraudulently deceives people; and "impersonation" in which someone gains by attributing a false name to someone.
Cascioli says that for 2,000 years the Roman Catholic Church has been deceiving people by furthering the fable that Christ existed, and says the church has been gaining financially by "impersonating" as Christ someone by the name of John of Gamala, the son of Judas from Gamala.
He also asserts that the Gospels -- the most frequently cited testimony of Jesus' existence -- are inconsistent, full of errors and biased, and that other written evidence from the time is scant and doesn't hold up to scholarly analysis.

Josephus was apparently unaware of the role played by Hezekiah in the rise of the Zealots.
This appears from his reference to Judas as their author.
