(i) Judas Iscariot The Traitor Introduction and Video

This article looks at the YouTube videos of Bill Donahues talk on Judas Iscariot The Traitor and emphasises the Judas aspect in each one of us as  playing an essential part in resurrecting the Christ Consciousness within.We have to have a Judas within us in order to be saved as we see when we unravel the Biblical symbolism. The zodiac sign Scorpio is also significant in this story.

(ii) Biblical Confirmation of Judas as a Traitor

Judas in Webster’s Dictionary = TRAITOR = one who betrays under the guise of friendship.

 

From the following two verses we can confirm that the Bible confirms Judas as a traitor:

Luke 6 : 16 And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.

Matthew 10 : 4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.

However, without Judas we cannot raise up from the bondage in our own mind.

The interesting thing was that he was given the most trustworthy position of all the disciples. He was the treasurer and controlled the money and could be depended on the most by Jesus.

Why Jesus Is Betrayed and Crucified at the Passover

Matthew 26 : 1 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,

2 Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.

Someone is not really betrayed when we know about it in advance and if we allow it to happen like Jesus did then it implies Jesus had a reason for allowing it to happen. The betrayer Judas then becomes part of Gods Will.

Why does this happen at the PASSOVER ? Because it is the Spring Equinox. The 14 th of Nissan in the  Old Testament. The Lamb (Aries) is consumed by the Fire (Sun). The Lamb Aries is sacrificed to the fire.

Jesus plays a dual role in this, being the Fire and the Lamb. He is sacrificed as the Lamb but it is the Spiritual Fire within that does this.

 

 

(iii) Scripture Interpretation of Judas Iscariot The Traitor

For this section we look at some verses from the book of John :

 

John 13: 21 When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.

Verily = I’m telling you the truth

Jesus talks to the 12 and says one of the disciples will betray him.

 

They are asking who it is that will betray Jesus in this verse :

John 13 : 25 He then lying on Jesus’ breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it? 

 

John 13 : 26 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

Jesus gives the sop to Judas

Sop = a piece of bread dipped in gravy, soup, or sauce.

 

John 13 : 27 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.

Satan = confusion (of the lower mind) entered Judas.

AFTER the sop Satan entered into him. So Judas had no idea of doing anything to Jesus until AFTER Jesus gave this the sop. So JESUS instigated Satan entering Judas.

 

John 13 : 28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.

In other words the disciples did not understand what was happening when Jesus gave the sop to Judas or how this betrayal would come about and in what form. Why would Jesus actively encourage someone trusted to act against him ? So when reading the Gospels we must bear in mind that there was a huge gap in spiritual evolution between Christ and his disciples and so they can never truly reflect his teachings.In the next verse they think that Jesus gave Judas the money towards a feast or for the poor :

 

John 13 : 29 For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.

the bag = the money

 

There is not one mention in the Bible about Judas trying to make a name for himself or being a selfish man.

 

Going back to an earlier verse :

 

John 13 : 26 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

Judas Iscariot The Traitor

Why did Jesus not just point out Judas to the other disciples when they asked instead of dipping the sop ?

Sop = as we have defined is a piece of food dipped in a liquid or a conciliatory or propitiatory bribe or gift

conciliatory =  to win over, to agree

propitiatory  = to gain favour

So by giving Judas the sop Jesus was trying to win Judas over to do what he wanted done.

Bribe = something given to a person in a position of trust to influence his behaviour

Dipping the sop biblically speaking = to do a favour for someone.

 

Dipping the Sop Interpretation

So in this story we have a  drama unfolding between Jesus and Judas, and this whole drama takes place in our head when the Jesus part of us bribes the Judas part so that we can rise up spiritually.

Judas understood that he was being instructed by the master to do something and do it quickly.

Judas was entrusted by Jesus to save mankind from his own flesh

 

None of the other disciples were chosen

Peter = told lies, Jesus called him Satan

Thomas = the doubter

Judas = chosen because he was trustworthy and was not weak.

Judas believed what Christians believe that Jesus was going to set up a kingdom on earth.

Judas believed that Jesus was assigning him to betray Jesus to the religious/political  system so Jesus could exercise his power to overthrow it and would set up a physical kingdom on earth. However Jesus did not want to have a physical kingdom (Church, Religion ) but a spiritual one.

 

This idea of setting up a physical kingdom on earth presented itself to Jesus in an earlier chapter of Matthew :

 

Matthew 4 : 8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

Judas Iscariot The Traitor

 

devil takes him up into an exceedingly  high mountain = his ego got the best of him

kingdoms of the world = what he could get for himself  (EGO)

Jesus now is talking about a spiritual kingdom not a physical one

 

 

 

 

The crux of the story relates to human nature and what is is within us (the Judas part) that betrays us so we give up the ways of the world and turn to spirit.

 

 

Matthew 27 : 5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

30 pieces of silver = 30 degrees in the constellation Scorpio (Zachariah). This will be explained in a further article.

Judas came back and took the 30 pieces of silver, threw it back and hung himself.  He was broken by the thought of having not performed his task well for Jesus.

Judas Iscariot The Traitor

He had no idea that he was the principal mover for universal salvation through Christ Consciousness.

The desire (ego ) nature that which is attached to a material life is not to be destroyed, it must destroy itself, that was the sacrifice of Judas to commit suicide.This must happen before the soul can move into eternal bliss.

Applied to us, we must dip the sap = betray me and I will die and we can both live eternally.

We take ourselves into a position of separation from the flesh, allowing the flesh to turn on you so that both are no longer acting in harmony and we die to the flesh so that the sacrifice can take place.
