Bible Names H-M: Judas
Judas in Easton's Bible Dictionary
the Graecized form of Judah. (1.) The patriarch (Matt. 1:2,
(2.) Son of Simon (John 6:71; 13:2, 26), surnamed
i.e., a man of Kerioth (Josh. 15:25). His name is
last in the list of the apostles, as given in the
(i.e., the first three) Gospels. The evil of his
gradually unfolded itself till "Satan entered into
13:27), and he betrayed our Lord (18:3). Afterwards
he owned his
sin with "an exceeding bitter cry," and cast the
money he had
received as the wages of his iniquity down on the
floor of the
sanctuary, and "departed and went and hanged
27:5). He perished in his guilt, and "went unto his
(Acts 1:25). The statement in Acts 1:18 that he
and burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels
is in no way contrary to that in Matt. 27:5. The
hanged himself, perhaps over the valley of Hinnom,
"and the rope
giving way, or the branch to which he hung breaking,
down headlong on his face, and was crushed and
mangled on the
rocky pavement below."
Why such a man was chosen to be an apostle we know
not, but it
is written that "Jesus knew from the beginning who
him" (John 6:64). Nor can any answer be
satisfactorily given to
the question as to the motives that led Judas to
Master. "Of the motives that have been assigned we
need not care
to fix on any one as that which simply led him on.
Crime is, for
the most part, the result of a hundred motives
bewildering fury through the mind of the criminal."
(3.) A Jew of Damascus (Acts 9:11), to whose house
sent. The street called "Straight" in which it was
identified with the modern "street of bazaars,"
where is still
pointed out the so-called "house of Judas."
(4.) A Christian teacher, surnamed Barsabas. He was
Jerusalem to Antioch along with Paul and Barnabas
decision of the council (Acts 15:22, 27, 32). He was
and a "chief man among the brethren."
