The Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke all specify that Judas pointed out Jesus by kissing him when the crowd approached. The crowd then brought Jesus to Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Judea. Jesus was subsequently tried and crucified. Judas ‘ kiss would clearly identify Jesus to the crowd.
So, why did Jesus choose Judas ? The reason that Jesus chose Judas was so that the Scriptures would be fulfilled. Judas was the “son of destruction.” Rather, Jesus chose Judas knowing fully that he had a wicked and unbelieving heart that would lead to betrayal (John 6:64; 70-71) in fulfillment of the Scriptures.
Judas Iscariot sells information about Jesus to the very people who want Him dead. He brings the chief priests and Pharisees to Jesus , pointing Him out among the disciples, betraying Him to them. Simon Peter too betrays Jesus . Though he follows Jesus after His arrest, he sits at a distance in the courtyard.
Following the arrest of Jesus , Peter denied knowing him three times , but after the third denial, heard the rooster crow and recalled the prediction as Jesus turned to look at him. Peter then began to cry bitterly. This final incident is known as the Repentance of Peter.
The disciple whom Jesus loved is referred to, specifically, six times in John’s gospel: It is this disciple who, while reclining beside Jesus at the Last Supper, asks Jesus who it is that will betray him, after being requested by Peter to do so.
jESUS KNEW WHEN HE PICKED HIM AS A DESIPLE THAT HE WOULD BETRAY HIM,IT WAS PREDICTED IN THE SCRIPTURES. JUDAS DID NOT REPENT AND WOULD NOT SO THERE WAS NO REASON TO PRAY . PETER DENYED JESUS THREE TIMES BUT HE REPENTED AND Jesus knew this so he prayed for him. Judas was led away by greed and his own lust.
Look to Jesus as the Example of Strength Jesus is a great example of how to handle betrayal . We may not seek out being a martyr, but when faced with difficulties, we can remind ourselves that Jesus forgave those who hurt him, so we can strive to forgive those who have harmed us.
Conclusion. Understanding the Gospels in theological, historical, and factual harmony, and considering explicit chronological statements about the events of the Last Supper lead us to the strong conclusion that Judas did not partake of the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper .
When Jesus was washing his disciple’s feet, Peter said, “No! You shall never wash my feet!” Then Jesus said, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”
If , as you say, Judas Iscariot had not betrayed Jesus , Jesus would have been arrested, and crucified and as for Judas he would have been crucified with Jesus . Judas would not have betrayed Jesus , but still, he would be killed.
Judas did not betray Jesus, lost gospel claims | The Times.
John 19:2-3 says “And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head and arrayed him in a purple robe. The color Purple was that of royalty. They came up to him, saying, ‘Hail, King of the Jews!’
Once one of Jesus’s most trusted disciples, Judas became the poster child for treachery and cowardice. From the moment he plants a kiss on Jesus of Nazareth in the Garden of Gethsemane, Judas Iscariot sealed his own fate: to be remembered as history’s most famous traitor.
He asked Jesus to command Peter to come to Him. Jesus did, and Peter got out of the boat. He began to walk on the water toward Jesus . But when Peter heard the loud winds and saw the waves crashing around him, he was afraid.
