Judas Iscariot

Judas

Judas “the betrayer” is mentioned over 30 times in the Christian New Testament. The similarity of the names of Judas and Jews makes the intention of the story suspect since the Christians classify Jews as evil in their New Testament which glorifies Christianity as the replacing religion of Judaism. The Gospel of Judas portrays Judas as a trusted disciple and acted according to the wished of Jesus. If Jesus intentionally died for everyone’s sins according to his plan then there was no unintentional death by the betrayal of Judas.

Did Judas do it?

NO, Judas didn’t do it.  The Devil did it. Satan entered into Judas and corrupted him.

As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. So Jesus told him, “What you are about to do, do quickly.”     John 13:27

Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve.     Luke 22:3

But the Devil was not involved.

Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Jesus to them.      Mark 14:10

When Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he was seized with remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders. “I have sinned,” he said, “for I have betrayed innocent blood.” “What is that to us?” they replied. “That’s your responsibility.” So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself. The chief priests picked up the coins and said, “It is against the law to put this into the treasury, since it is blood money.” So they decided to use the money to buy the potter’s field as a burial place for foreigners.That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day. Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: “They took the thirty pieces of silver, the price set on him by the people of Israel, 10 and they used them to buy the potter’s field, as the Lord commanded me.”     Matthew 27:3-10

When did the Devil enter into Judas?

YES, before the Last Supper.

Then entered Satan into Judas, . . . and he went his way and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him. . . . Then came the day of unleavened bread when the passover must be killed.      Luke 22:3, 4, 7.

YES, after the Last Supper.

And after the sop Satan entered into him.      John 13:27.

Where did the money come from to bribe Judas?

He was a corrupt treasurer of the disciples.

 Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the festival, or to give something to the poor.     John 13:29

The priests.

Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Jesus to them.     Mark 14:10

When Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he was seized with remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders. “I have sinned,” he said, “for I have betrayed innocent blood.” “What is that to us?” they replied. “That’s your responsibility.” So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself. The chief priests picked up the coins and said, “It is against the law to put this into the treasury, since it is blood money.” So they decided to use the money to buy the potter’s field as a burial place for foreigners.That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day. Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: “They took the thirty pieces of silver, the price set on him by the people of Israel, 10 and they used them to buy the potter’s field, as the Lord commanded me.”     Matthew 27:3-10

Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve.     Luke 22:3

Jesus named Judas as a betrayer at the last supper.

NO, he didn’t

While they were reclining at the table eating, he said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me—one who is eating with me.”     Mark 14:18

But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table. 22 The Son of Man will go as it has been decreed. But woe to that man who betrays him!”     Luke 22:21-22

YES, he did.

Jesus answered, “It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.” Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.      John 13:26

Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, “Surely you don’t mean me, Rabbi?” Jesus answered, “You have said so.”    Matthew 26:25

How did Judas die?

He hanged himself.

And he cast down the pieces of silver into the temple, and departed, and went out and hanged himself.   Matthew 27:5

His stomach burst open according to Luke.

And falling headlong he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.   Acts 1:18

Did Judas repent for what he had done to Jesus before he killed himself?

NO, he didn’t.

beginning from John’s baptism to the time when Jesus was taken up from us. For one of these must become a witness with us of his resurrection.”     Acts 1:22

YES, he did.        Judas regretted his betrayal.

So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself.     Matthew 27:5

Where did Judas die?

At “Blood Acre” according to Luke.

    Acts 1:15-22

Matthew did not know.

So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself.     Matthew 27:5

Who bought the land “Blood Acre”?

Judas himself.

Now, this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity.   Acts 1:18

The Priests bought it.

And the chief priests took the silver pieces, . . . and bought with them the potter’s field.   Matt. 27:6, 7.

What does the name “Blood Acre” Mean?

Judas’s blood death, according to Luke.

Everyone in Jerusalem heard about this, so they called that field in their language Akeldama, that is, Field of Blood.)     Acts 1:19

The blood money used to buy the land.

That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day.     Matthew 27:8

30 pieces of silver

Jeremiah’s 30 Pieces of Silver?

NOT … Christians claim the verse in Jerimiah prophesized the 30 pieces of silver.

Again, Christians demand that you to “Just Believe”, and don’t think you will check up on them.

And they consulted together and bought with them the potter’s field to bury strangers in. Therefore that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day. Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, ‘And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of Him and who was priced, whom they and the children of Israel priced. And gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord directed me.’    Matthew 27:7-10 citing Jeremiah 32:6-9

Jeremiah referred to seven shekels and 10 pieces of silver and not to a potter’s field, but to house plots, fields, and vineyards.

Behold, Hanamel, the son of your uncle Shallum, is coming to you to say, ‘Buy yourself my field that is in Anathoth, for upon you is the law of redemption, to buy it … I weighed out the money for him; seven shekels and ten pieces … For thus said Hashem, Master of Legions, God of Israel,; ‘Houses, fields and vineyards will yet be bought in this land.’    Jeremiah 32:6, 32:9 32:15.

Jeremiah land was a land of hope and restoration NOT a negative portrayal of guilt and death. And NO … that is NO 30 pieces of silver.

Zechariah’s 30 Pieces of Silver

10 Then I took my staff called Favor and broke it, revoking the covenant I had made with all the nations.

11 It was revoked on that day, and so the oppressed of the flock who were watching me knew it was the word of theLord.

12 I told them, “If you think it best, give me my pay; but if not, keep it.” So they paid me thirty pieces of silver.

13 And the Lord said to me, “Throw it to the potter”—the handsome price at which they valued me! So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them to the potter at the house of the Lord.

14 Then I broke my second staff called Union, breaking the family bond between Judah and Israel.

Zechariah 11:12-13

This is not Jeremiah as Matthew quoted.  It is Zechariah.  It is the only mention of 30 pieces of silver.  And the context is totally different than that is quoted by Matthew as prophesy.
