Judas Iscariot

One of the Twelve Disciples of Jesus Christ

Judas Iscariot is listed among the twelve disciples chosen by Jesus. (Mark 3:14,19; Matthew 26:14).

Judas Iscariot is called Iscariot and a traitor. (Luke 6:16).

Jesus had supper with the Lazarus and Mary and Martha six days before the Passover at Bethany. Mary took a pound of ointment of spikenard which was very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. It was Judas Iscariot who criticized Mary for her act of love to the Savior. (John 12:1-5). Judas Iscariot was considered callous. He reminded Mary the ointment sold for three hundred pence and they should give something to the poor.

Judas Iscariot was called a thief. He was the treasurer for the disciples and was in charge of the money bag. (John 13:29). It was said of him that he did not care for the poor but because he was a thief, he had the bag, and took what was put in it. (John 12:6).

Judas Iscariot was identified as the betrayer of Jesus by Jesus Christ. (John 13:21-26). He was deceitful when he betrayed Jesus by going unto the chief priests and receiving them thirty pieces of silver to betray Jesus. (Matthew 26:14-16).

Judas Iscariot was possessed by satan, the devil after supper was ended, the devil having been put in to the heart of Judah Iscariot, Simon’s son. (John 13:2). After Jesus Christ gave the sop to him, satan entered into Judah Iscariot and Jesus told him to go do what he has to do quickly. (John 13:26-27; John 6:70-71).

Christ was betrayed with a kiss by Judas Iscariot, who had gone to the chief priest and was glad to give him the money. (Mark 14:10-11). Jesus went to Gethsemane to pray. Immediately, while He was speaking to the disciples, Judas Iscariot came to him, followed by a great multitude with staves and swords. Judas Iscariot had told the chief priests, scribes and elders the man he would kiss would be Jesus. Judas Iscariot said, Master, master; and kissed Jesus Christ. (Mark 14:43-45).

Judas Iscariot returned the betrayal money after he saw Jesus had been condemned. He repented himself, and brought the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders. He confessed he had sinned by betraying innocent blood. Judah Iscariot cast down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed and hung himself. It was not lawful to put the money back into the treasury, so the chief priest and elders bought the potter’s field to bury strangers in. The field is called the Field of Blood even unto this day. This was to fulfill what the prophet Jeremy said. (Matthew 27:3-10).

Judas Iscariot goes to his own place. The scripture must be fulfilled, concerning Judas Iscariot who purchased a field with the reward of iniquity, and fell headlong, burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. The field was called the Field of Blood. It is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take. Judas by his transgression fell, that he might go to his own place. (Acts 1:16-20,25).

Jesus went as it was written of Him to go, but woe to Judas Iscariot who betrayed the Son of man. It is better for that man if he had not to have been born. (Mathew 26:24).

There was only one of those given to Jesus that was lost, and that was the son of perdition, so that the scripture might be fulfilled. The son of perdition is Judas Iscariot. (John 17:12).
