"Preach The Word"



1. There are many mysteries about this one of Jesus' disciples

(2) Why did Jesus choose him to be a disciple knowing him for what he was.

2. He kissed the door to heaven; yet went to hell - Luke 22:47-48

I. Judas Before He Met Jesus

A. As a child-Son of Simon - John 13:26
He was innocent then

B. As Judas Iscariot -Luke 6:16 From town of Kerioth South of Judea - maybe near Hebron

B Jesus knew him to be a devil from the beginning - John 6:70-71

C. Prophecies concerning Judas - Psalm 109:5-8; Acts 1:16

III. Jesus' Relationship to Judas and the Eleven

1. He let Judas be treasurer - John 13:29; he held the bag John:12:6

2. He showed no difference in affection between Judas and other disciples - Luke 22:47

IV. The Closing Scenes
