Jude (alternatively Judas or Judah) is one of the brothers of Jesus (Greek: ἀδελφοί, romanized: adelphoi, lit. ‘brethren’) according to the New Testament.
Judas Iscariot was one of the Twelve Apostles . He is notorious for betraying Jesus by disclosing Jesus ‘ whereabouts for 30 pieces of silver. Judas brought men to arrest Jesus and identified him with a kiss. Jesus was then arrested, tried, and executed.
Possible Motives for His Betrayal Judas then went on his own to the priests of the Temple, the religious authorities at the time, and offered to betray Jesus in exchange for money—30 pieces of silver, as specified in the Gospel of Matthew. Others have suggested a more political motive for his traitorous act.
He is generally identified with Thaddeus, and is also variously called Jude of James , Jude Thaddaeus , Judas Thaddaeus or Lebbaeus . He is sometimes identified with Jude , the brother of Jesus, but is clearly distinguished from Judas Iscariot , the apostle who betrayed Jesus prior to his crucifixion.
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.
In Pullman’s version of the story, Jesus has a twin brother named Christ . “I was intrigued, you see, by the difference between the two parts of the name Jesus Christ that we commonly use interchangeably,” Pullman says.
The Gospel of Matthew 26:15 states that Judas committed the betrayal in exchange for thirty pieces of silver. According to Matthew 27:1–10, after learning that Jesus was to be crucified, Judas attempted to return the money he had been paid for his betrayal to the chief priests and committed suicide by hanging.
The Gospel of Judas is a Gnostic gospel . The content consists of conversations between Jesus and Judas Iscariot. Given that it includes late 2nd century theology, it is thought to have been composed in the 2nd century by Gnostic Christians, rather than the historic Judas himself.
Leonardo’s Last Supper is dense with symbolic references. Attributes identify each apostle. For example, Judas Iscariot is recognized both as he reaches to toward a plate beside Christ (Matthew 26) and because he clutches a purse containing his reward for identifying Christ to the authorities the following day.
According to the Gospel of Matthew, Judas Iscariot was a disciple of Jesus . Before the Last Supper, Judas went to the chief priests and agreed to hand over Jesus in exchange for 30 silver coins.
Saint Matthias, (flourished 1st century ad, Judaea; d. traditionally Colchis, Armenia; Western feast day February 24, Eastern feast day August 9), the disciple who, according to the biblical Acts of the Apostles 1:21–26, was chosen to replace Judas Iscariot after Judas betrayed Jesus.
According to all four gospels, Jesus was brought to the “Place of a Skull” and crucified with two thieves, with the charge of claiming to be “King of the Jews”, and the soldiers divided his clothes before he bowed his head and died .
The Church Fathers identify him as John the Evangelist , John of Patmos , John the Elder and the Beloved Disciple , and testify that he outlived the remaining apostles and that he was the only one to die of natural causes.
The third major theme is the farewell of Jesus to his disciples, in which Judas Iscariot is no longer present, having left the supper .
The devotion to him as patron saint of desperate causes began in France and Germany in the late 18th century. St . Jude is distinguished in John 14:22 as Judas but “not Iscariot” to avoid identification with the betrayer of Jesus, Judas Iscariot.
