45 thoughts on “Why Did Judas Betray Jesus? | Hard Questions”

  1. i believe the reason Judas betrayed Jesus because He didnt truly believe that Jesus was the Messiah.

    When unbelievers dont believe in our God the betray us whether they be family or friends. Jesus told Nicodemus that those that live in darkness hate the light. whether they accpet it or not unbelievers are against believers

  2. Which is true?
    Judas threw the money into the temple, went away and hanged himself (Matthew 27:5) or
    Judas bought the field with the money, fell, burst open there and his bowels gushed out (Acts 1:18) ?
    They can't both be true.

  3. I have a prayer request I suffered a massive stroke last year at the age of 39 I pray that god will renew mentally and physically I pray for total healing thank you god bless

  4. Gentlemen I did not hear you speak of Abraham offering Iassic. This is the shadow Jesus likely taught the apostles. A father killing his son but receiving him back. Abraham knowing he was going to kill Iaasic told the men the boy and I will return. Iaasic must be restored the same as Jesus rose from the dead.. If Judas played the part of Abraham how would we know? Judas like Levi would be in the loins of Abraham, when Abraham would have killed Iaasic. IN the story GOD stopped the execution because Iaasic was not the real sacrifice. If Judas was playing the part of Abraham, how likely is it Abraham kissed his son goodbye before he laid him to die? The same with Jesus and Judas. Jesus made it a point to point to the kiss, but it is only understood if Judas thinks Jesus is Iaasic and is going to be spared at the last second. Judas saw. SAW…..and killed him self. WHAT did he see? The crown of thorns. OMG, that is NOT Iaasic, thought Judas it is the ram with his head tangled in a bush and he is going to DIE.
    Judas thought he was doing the bidding of GOD because Jesus instructed him to go and he went without reply. I am convinced Judas thought it would all be stopped at the moment of execution but then SAW the crown and realized Jesus was the offering GOD said he would provide. There is no scripture I know of to say a lamb offering will raise from the dead. The high priest heard Judas confession he had betrayed innocent blood. Their job was make an offering for Judas but they said handle it your self so he did.

  5. Thirty pieces of silver was the price for which Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus, according to an account in the Gospel of Matthew 26:15 in the New Testament. Before the Last Supper, Judas is said to have gone to the chief priests and agreed to hand over Jesus in exchange for 30 silver coins, and to have attempted to return the money afterwards, filled with remorse. (Wikipedia)

  6. I will always forgive even those who hurt me betrayed me because Jesus Christ is my cuz we always forgive still loving and having love and compassion no matter what for all in the world it sets a soul free

  7. Judas was simply doing what Jesus asked. He was the smartest Apostle and was chosen to be their treasurer because he was the most trusted and thrifty. I think Jesus took Judas aside and discussed what needed to be done. Judas did what Jesus asked but later regretted following Jesus' orders. The apostles just didn't understand Jesus' mission so Judas was elected to help Jesus release his spirit from His Earthly body. That's my take on it. Judas loved Jesus enough to do what he asked because he understood. If he was so bad, why didn't the other 11 stop him? I think they knew that Judas really loved Jesus and just didn't understand what the two of them were planning. They were just dumb fishermen.

  8. Judas did betray Jesus , but he had no choice but to . Humans do not have free will .

    Think about this , Jesus said a traitor will dip his bread in his soup . How did Jesus know Judas would dip his bread In his soup .

    Jesus knew , because Jesus was god , and god knew people don't have free will , God created a Devine plan on earth for all humanity so all life is part of this plan including all.our actions including those if Judas .

    Jesus forgave Judas for his betrayls because he and the angels forced Judas to betray

    We are all forced to do what we do weather it is good it evil .

  9. And then there was grace. Jesus became the least of us to show us the way he chose the ones no one else would. By giving us a choice showing us love even when we don't love ourselves … but sin can seem so sweet until it sours the cost of life is the sacrifice Jesus made for us but we sell ourselves short. In the end he still died for us even knowing how weak we are now that's Love.

  10. It is a difficulty because what is presented is not as clear as one might expect considering other information, verses, etc. For instance…

    The bible mentions the fact that Judas threw the thirty pieces back and then went and "hanged himself"…and then does the "meanwhile…" trick in MATTHEW. Nothing reads as events in the remote past. In addition, the jumping back and forth within the verses do not help much.

  11. Judas Iscariot was chosen in the first Earth age. 2 carry out this act of betrayal God had to pick someone to do it that = the crucifixion of Christ the scriptures had to be fulfilled just like the Roman soldiers that nailed Christ to the cross they had no idea what they was doing but they were predestined to carryout the Fulfillment of scripture for this reason Christ said forgive them Father for they know not what they do to give those Souls a chance God will send the Spirit of Slumber up on you in the Greek it means stupor this is where we get our word stupid .God told Zachariah where were you before you enter your mother's womb did I not ordained you to be my prophet that = predestined from the first Earth age this is why we must let the manuscripts interpret themselves if you don't know now you know

  12. How do we know that Judas hanged himself? Presumably his body was found hanged, and the assumption was that it was suicide. But there are several other possibilities: he was executed by his fellow disciples or perhaps silenced by the authorities?

  13. It is so simple. He was destined to do so. The Bible tells you that in John 17:12 "While I was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have guarded them, and not one of them has been lost except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. He was chosen just as Pharaoh was raised up and chosen so God could get the glory. We are all predestined to do something. The question was, why did Judas betray Jesus? not who was Judas.

  14. I DONT MEAN TO DISRESPECT THE FEELING AND SENTIMENTS OF MY CHRISTIAN BROTHER OR SISTER. I AM JUST CURIOUS. I WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO BE ENLIGHTENED ON THE SUBJECT.

    HERE ARE MY ARGUMENTS.

    1] WHAT IF JESUS WANTED JUDAS TO DO IT. LIKE DUMBELDORE WANTED SNAPE TO DO IT,.

    SINCE JESUS TRUSTED THE MONEY OF HIS MINISTRY WITH JUDAS.
    IT INDICATES JESUS TRUSTED JUDAS MORE THAN ANY OTHER DISCIPLES.

    2] WHAT IF JUDAS AND JESUS WERE THE ONLY TWO WHO KNEW ABOUT HOW SON OF GOD WAS GOING TO FULFILL HIS OBJECTIVE i.e. TAKE PUNISHMENT FOR THE WHOLE MANKIND
    WHICH WAS THE PLAN ALL ALONG.

    3] WHAT IF OTHER DISICIPLES HUNG JUDAS AND MADE IT LOOK LIKE A SUICIDE
    BECAUSE THAT SEEMS LIKE A PROBABLE RESPONSE FROM PEOPLE WHOSE MESSIAH YOU JUST BETRAYED AND WITH HIM GONE FOR THE MOMENT OF COURSE. THEIR AGONY AND PAIN AND HATRED FOR JUDAS COULDN`T BE CONTROLLED.

    WE SEE TODAY PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE FOR BREAKING UP OR NOT GETTING THE LOVE IN RETURN. AND COMPARE THAT TO THE ARGUABLY BIGGEST BETRAYAL IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND.

    4] WHAT IF JESUS SAW THIS COMING WHICH HE PROBABLY WOULD HAVE AND HE WANTED IT THAT WAY AND HE NEEDED SOMEONE TO DO IT. SO HE CHOSE JUDAS AND HE AGREED AND COULDN'T LIVE WITH JESUS GONE BECAUSE OF HIM.

    I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO KNOW HOW FREE WILL OF ANYONE WHO TOOK PART AND PERSECUTED THE SON OF GOD MATTERS IF GOD HIMSELF HAD PLANNED IT SO AND THE BREAD OF LIFE WANTED TO TAKE THIS PUNISHMENT UPON HIM FOR EVERYONE

    DOESNT THAT IMPLIES THEY HAD NO CHOICE TO BEGIN WITH ?
    IF THEY DIDNT DO IT SOMEONE ELSE WOULD HAVE TO DELIVER THE WILL OF GOD ?
    I DO CONDEMN THE HIGH PRIESTS AND POINTUS PILATE AND THE PEOPLE BUT I AM STRUGGLING TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN FREE WILL AND GOD`S WILL WITH RESPECT TO THIS MONUMENTAL EVENT IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND.

    AGAIN NO OFFENSE TO ANYONE. 🙂

  15. A quartet of empty heads wasting time talking utter nonsense. Judas role in God's plan for the salvation of man was predetermined. Instead of blaming him, I think Judas should be made into a saint for playing a central role in this plan. If you strongly feel that you want to spew some bile at somebody then direct it to God. He is the mastermind of this plan

  16. If Christ was not betrayed, we could not have been accepted. If Christ had not became the price of a slave, 30 pieces of silver we could not be free. This was all part of salvation package. However I believed that Judas did it because he wanted Christ to be a political messiah and also because he thought that no harm would come to Christ. He saw the lame walked, the blind see, even the dead raised, not to mention Jesus calm the storm and walked on waters. Hmmm, what can these people do to him, perhaps let's put him in place and we will see is reaction

  17. But in Mark 14:44
    #44 Now his betrayer had given them an agreed sign, saying: “Whoever it is I kiss, this is he; take him into custody and lead him away safely.”

    MARK being the first gospel written and the only one to say something like that…Whoever I kiss..lead him away safely….

    I can't quit figure this out?

  18. IMO, judas didn't betray jesus. Jesus knew he had to suffer for our sins for our salvation, he was still human and of course who WANTS to vo through that. So at the last supper jesus asked his disciples to turn him in to the romans and judas was the only one to obey his last command since jesus didn't want to turn himself in. If YOU were at the last supper would you turn jesus in to the romans knowing it had to be that way for our salvation??? Could you do it??? Guilt drove judas to suicide knowing it had to be done.

  19. The name Judas in Hebrew means: praise. The praised one.
    I don't think that can be ignored. Sounds like there's a plan going on here.

  20. Judas betrayed Jesus as a matter of convenience and when he realised it was beyond his perameters he tried to take it back.👿"I've betrayed innocent blood".

  21. Judas possessed by Satan is smart, so it was not a miscalculation or mistake by Satan. ( Ephesians Ch 3) The answer is PAUL was never mentioned in any of the prophecies. Paul was part of a mysterious plan by GOD to reveal the message of Grace. Imagine Christianity without PAUL's history or his epistles.

  22. I never understood what the actual betrayal was. Giving a guy a kiss, who supposedly everybody knew? They all shouted for his execution the next day, but nobody around to identify him for the arrest? Strange story. But of course every good fiction story needs a bad guy and nothing better than a friend betraying the main character.

    Astounding rubbish, according a well-known yt channel.

  23. Examine the Scriptures…like a detective.
    Judas was the treasurer. He was in charge and the keeping of the money, YET betrays Jesus for money, YET after betraying Him commits suicide! My belief is that Judas had been dipping into the treasury had needed to replace the money, hence he sold Jesus out. But why betray Jesus and then kill himself? – my belief is that Judas never thought they would be able to capture or kill him. Many times Judas had seen Jesus escape capture, many times Judas had witnessed miracles. I think the cross came at a complete surprise to him.
    Thus, Judas' plan was to replace money he had stolen and nobody would be the wiser.
