Matthew 27:1 When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death: (The religious community of that day wanted to kill Jesus. Nice folks).
Matthew 27:2 And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
Matthew 27:3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
Matthew 27:4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
Matthew 27:5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
(Judas repented, gave back the money, departed, and hung himself)!
Acts 1:16 Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus.
Acts 1:17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.
Acts 1:18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.
(All his bowels gushed out? How does that happen when one hangs their self? Sounds to me like he had some help. It reminds me that I heard once on the news that a dead body was found with sixteen stab wounds in the chest; it was ruled a suicide. Hmm? I smell something fishy. Remember, the chief priests and elders wanted Jesus dead, wouldn't have been any problem for them to help Judas hang himself and cause his bowels to gush out. I believe the chief priests and elders didn't want Judas walking around and telling his side of the story, condemning them. Just something to think about my friends. By the way, Judas Iscariot is not the son of perdition; a different topic for a different day).
The betrayal of Jesus Christ by Judas Iscariot was written about long before in the Psalms.
Psalm 41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
These verses, plus others, describe the actual night of His betrayal by Judas.
Mark 14:18 And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which eateth with me shall betray me.
Mark 14:41 And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
Mark 14:42 Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.
Mark 14:43 And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
Mark 14:44 And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.
Mark 14:45 And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him.
This betrayal was prearranged by God, it was part of His plan; (Remember, Jesus Christ is God in the flesh, John 1:14, Matthew 1:23, etc. God came to this earth and suffered immensely for us, He experienced the evil that is present here on earth just as we humans do).
