    IF ( and that's a big IF) the story is true, Judas did what God had ALWAYS INTENDED for him to do:

    To MAKE SURE that the right person was executed.

    Because if the guards had grabbed, let's say, James the Less, the perfect sacrifice to appease the Wrath of God the Father ( because of so many teenagers touching themselves Down There) would NOT have been accomplished!

    And Paul would not have had an epileptic fit on the road to Damascus, and the stuff he wrote would have been ENTIRELY ignored.

    According to Christian theology, he was instrumental in bringing salvation to humankind by his betrayal of Jesus to the Romans. Without Judas Iscariot, Christians would be wearing a walker or a wheelchair around their necks because Jesus would have died of old age.

    Apparently Jesus thought so, as He picked Judas as one of His 12 closest students. http://www.catholic.org/encyclopedia/view.php?id=6... has this to say of the positive aspect of Judas Iscariot: "...he would...have felt the holy influence of Christ...[and]...enjoyed the light and spiritual gifts of the Apostolate."

    yes for he was so chosen to be the betrayer of Jesus who knew him from a previous lifetime. He has worked well and is now evolved way beyond those times.

    Yes.

    To be sure, Judas was lost, a thief and a devil, and he made a covenant to hand over Jesus to the chief priests, after Satan put it into his heart--he, in that way, lifted up his heel against Jesus. But Jesus responded to that trespass against himself by washing the heel that was lifted up against him. In that way, Jesus cast out the prince of this world, and he left Judas with no desire to fulfill his obligation under the covenant he made. (John 17:12; 12:6; 6:70,71; Luke 22:3-6; John 13:2; 13:18; 13:1-15; 12:31; Acts 10:15)

    Then, Jesus himself put it into the heart of Judas to fulfill his obligation under the covenant he made to hand him over. (John 13:18)

    Note: Jesus was in the process of laying down his life with power. (John 10:17,18) So the act of handing him over to the chief priests became an act of cooperation with him, after Jesus himself put it into the heart of Judas. Eating bread with another symbolizes cooperating with them. Jesus chose the one who had lifted up his heel against him as the one who should eat his bread with him, that the scripture might be fulfilled. Jesus seized upon the psalmist's lament to orchestrate the behavior of Judas. (Psalms 41:9)

    By giving the sop, after he had dipped it, Jesus indicated his choice of the apostle who should hand him over. After he indicated his choice, Satan entered into Judas again. Now, however, Satan tried to remove from the heart of Judas what Jesus had just put there. Satan was opposed to the things which Jesus said must happen. (John 13:27; Matthew 16:21-23; Mark 8:31-33)

    Jesus did not compel Judas to cooperate with him, but he said, "That which you do, do quickly." Jesus gave Judas a choice. (John 13:27)

    Note: Judas experienced the influence of Satan as his own desire. After Satan entered him again, Judas was opposed to the idea that Jesus should be handed over. But he recalled the teaching of Jesus when Simon Peter expressed his opposition to the things which Jesus said must happen. "If any one will come after me, then let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." (Matthew 16:24; Mark 8:34)

    The covenant that Judas made became his cross when Jesus chose him to hand himself over. Judas denied himself and took up his cross. In that way, Judas glorified Jesus. (John 13:31)

    Despite all of his personal failings, Judas Iscariot glorified Jesus by accepting the work which Jesus gave him in the eleventh hour. That is the good thing about Judas Iscariot. Those who savor the things that be of men, however, cannot see it.
