A Moment in History: Judas Iscariot

by ian


In world history, there are few characters that are so sinister that their name literally denotes a specific type of sin or vice. In this case, the vice is greed and the sin is betrayal. The man was one of the closest friends the Lord Jesus Christ had on Earth, but he is remembered throughout history as a vile wretch who sold his Lord to be executed for a mere 30 pieces of silver. Despite the years that he walked with Jesus, learned from Jesus, and witnessed the miracles of Jesus, Judas Iscariot still betrayed Jesus in the end.
