Judas : 

Judas Did Jesus make a mistake? Celsus 120-180AD

CELSUS, writes between the years 175 and 180 A.D. : 

CELSUS, writes between the years 175 and 180 A.D. Celsus lived and wrote in the 2nd century. Origen, a Father of Christianity, argued against Celsus’ "The True Word", in the 3rd century. Celsus' writings no longer survive in tact, but we have access to some of his work because Origen quotes passages for the purpose of pointing out their errors.

Judas Iscariot : 

Judas Iscariot Judas is mentioned 22 times in the New Testament. The name Judas (Ioudas) is the Greek form of Judah It was a common name even among the Twelve there were two that used it. Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot (Lk 6:12 )

A Man of Kerioth : 

A Man of Kerioth Judas’ name, is usually associated with the word Iscariot [Heb. "a man of Kerioth" which is a city in Judah (cf. Joshua 15:25)]. Judas Iscariot is the only one of the 12 that came from the territory of Judah. All the others were Galileans We are told nothing concerning the circumstances of his call or his share in the ministry and miracles of the Apostles. And it is significant that he is never mentioned without some reference to his great betrayal.

What’s in a Name? : 

What’s in a Name? Judas is a word that is related to “Jew.” Therefore, Judas a Jew, “gave Jesus over to the Jews.” More about “gave” later. Augustine says that as Peter represents the church. Judas represents the Jews.

John’s Gospel : 

John’s Gospel In St. John's Gospel the name Judas first occurs in connection with the foretelling of the betrayal. 71 He was referring to Judas, son of Simon the Iscariot; it was he who would betray him, one of the Twelve. John 6:70 Jesus answered them, “Did I not choose you twelve? Yet is not one of you a devil?”

The Thief : 

The Thief Only John tells us that Judas Iscariot carried the purse. Only John tells us, at the anointing in Bethany, it was Judas who objected to the waste of the ointment. (Jn 12:4-6). In both Matthew & Mark’s accounts they tell us that Judas was the one who offered to betray Jesus to the Chief Priests. He is not tempted and seduced by the priests, but approaches them on his own accord.

Luke 22:3-5 : 

Luke 22:3-5 3 Then Satan entered into Judas, the one surnamed Iscariot, who was counted among the Twelve, 4 and he went to the chief priests and temple guards to discuss a plan for handing Him over to them. 5 They were pleased and agreed to pay him money. John agrees with Luke. 13:2 The devil had already induced Judas, son of Simon the Iscariot, to hand him over.

Jesus KnewJohn 13:25-27 : 

Jesus KnewJohn 13:25-27 Jn 13:25 He leaned back against Jesus’ chest and said to him, “Master, who is it?” 26 Jesus answered, “It is the one to whom I hand the morsel after I have dipped it.” So he dipped the morsel and (took it and) handed it to Judas, son of Simon the Iscariot. 27 After he took the morsel, Satan entered him. So Jesus said to him, “What you are going to do, do quickly.”

What Was Judas’ Motive? : 

What Was Judas’ Motive? Money? Mt. 26:15 “What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?” They paid him thirty pieces of silver, John tells us at the anointing in Bethany what Judas said about the “waste.” John goes on to tell us 12:6 He said this not because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief and held the money bag and used to steal the contributions. Satan made him do it. Luke 22:3 Then Satan entered into Judas, John 13:2 The devil had already induced Judas, son of Simon the Iscariot, to hand him over. Fulfillment of Scripture Mk. 14:18-21 John 13:18 Mt. 27:9

How Did Judas Die? : 

How Did Judas Die? Mt. 27:5 And throwing down the pieces of silver in the temple, he departed; and he went and hanged himself. 6 But the chief priests, taking the pieces of silver, said, “It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since they are blood money.” 7 So they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in. Acts 1:18 He bought a parcel of land with the wages of his iniquity, and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle, and all his insides spilled out.

Matthew and Acts : 

Matthew and Acts Both agree that there was a field or acreage purchased. Matthew tells us the chief priests made the purchase. Acts tells us that Judas purchased the land and then had an accident there. Many have attempted to “harmonize” the two accounts. We even have “The rope broke” theory. Judas tried to hang himself, the rope broke and he fell and broke open in the middle.

Theories of Why Judas Betrayed Jesus? : 

Theories of Why Judas Betrayed Jesus? Judas might have been working for the Sanhedrin for a long time. Judas had grown impatient with Jesus’ failure to inaugurate the kingdom. Jesus needed to be forced to show his messianic power. Judas was obeying the orders of Jesus (John 13:27). Judas had now lost faith in Jesus and felt it his religious duty to stop this false teacher. Gnostics developed a strange idea of gratitude toward Judas since he forced the powers of the world to act against Jesus and thus made salvation possible.

Who’s More Guilty? : 

Who’s More Guilty? In Matthew’s gospel we see that Judas is repentant and that’s why he is trying to return the 30 pieces of silver. He is trying to undo the wrong he did in turning over Jesus. Judas gave Jesus over to the chief priests and the elders, they are the ones who in turn gave Jesus over to be crucified by the Romans. They showed no remorse or even interest in either the sin of Judas or the innocence of Jesus. The religious leaders were the most callous.

Origen Answers Celsus : 

Origen Answers Celsus Origen said that Judas had started out as a good disciple; theft and lack of faith opened the way for the devil. No, Jesus didn’t make a mistake. John 6:70 Jesus answered them, “Did I not choose you twelve? Yet is not one of you a devil?”

Who betrayed Our Lord? : 

Who betrayed Our Lord? The Baltimore Catechism tells us that Judas, one of His Apostles, betrayed Our Lord, and from His sin we may learn that even the good may become very wicked by the abuse of their free will. It is also good to remember that the leader of the Apostles, Peter, denied Jesus three times. Peter repented and confessed to the apostles ordained by Jesus, Judas didn’t confess and he fell into despair. One used free will wisely and we aren’t certain about Judas.

Is Judas in Hell? : 

Is Judas in Hell? Mt. 26:24 The Son of Man indeed goes, as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed. It would be better for that man if he had never been born.” Why? God knows, we don’t The examples of the saints are lost on us if we think of them as being without human weaknesses. Repentance can come at any time. The official Church position is that the Church NEVER says that anyone was sent to hell.

The Father’s Arms Are Always Open : 

The Father’s Arms Are Always Open Luke 23:39 One of the criminals hanging there abused him: ‘Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us as well.’ 40 But the other spoke up and rebuked him. ‘Have you no fear of God at all?’ he said. ‘You got the same sentence as he did, 41 but in our cases we deserved it: we are paying for what we did. But this man has done nothing wrong.’ 42 Then he said, ‘Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.’ 43 He answered him, ‘I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.’ (NJB)
