This work is NOT a defense of, or justification for, Judas Iscariot or what he did. However, the story of Judas’ role in his ministry with Jesus of Nazareth, and particularly his untimely death, has been formulated and passed down to us by tradition.
Because of the subject matter, should we take the position that Judas was the spawn of the devil himself, and should never be considered as a real person? Is he the summation of all evil, and as such, his life is unimportant and we should sweep him under the rug and never give a second thought to him?
The Scriptures themselves present to us a different picture than what we have heard in days gone by, and very possibly for a different reason, which we will attempt to present here. Our prayer is that the reader himself would go to the Word of God to confirm or reject what is put forth in this little work.
Judas Iscariot is a very very touchy subject with many people, and disdain many times awaits any individual who would seek to probe deeper into what actually might have happened almost two thousand years ago.
This author’s prayer is that all who read this work be willing to look honestly at the life of any human being as someone the Son of God himself came into this earth to die for.
May all praise ascend to the One who has brought us forth for His good pleasure, and to His Word, which genders truth to all generations.
