The Apostle who betrayed his Divine Master. The name Judas (Ioudas)
is the Greek form of Judah (Hebrew "praised"), a proper name
frequently found both in the Old and the New Testament. Even among the Twelve
there were two that bore the name, and for this reason it is usually associated
with the surname Iscariot [Heb. "a man of Kerioth" or Carioth, which
is a city of Judah (cf. Joshua 15:25)]. There can be no doubt that this is the
right interpretation of the name, though the true origin is obscured in the
Greek spelling, and, as might be expected, other derivations have been suggested
(e.g. from Issachar).
Very little is told us in the Sacred Text concerning the history of Judas
Iscariot beyond the bare facts of his call to the Apostolate, his treachery, and
his death. His birthplace, as we have seen, is indicated in his name Iscariot,
and it may be remarked that his origin separates him from the other Apostles,
who were all Galileans. For Kerioth is a city of Judah. It has been suggested
that this fact may have had some influence on his career by causing want of
sympathy with his brethren in the Apostolate. We are told nothing concerning the
circumstances of his call or his share in the ministry and miracles of the
Apostles. And it is significant that he is never mentioned without some
reference to his great betrayal. Thus, in the list of the Apostles given in the
Synoptic Gospels, we read: "and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed
him". (Matthew 10:4. Cf. Mark 3:19; Luke 6:16). So again in St. John's
Gospel the name first occurs in connection with the foretelling of the betrayal:
"Jesus answered them: Have not I chosen you twelve; and one of you is a
devil? Now he meant Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon: for this same was about to
betray him whereas he was one of the twelve" (John 6:71-2). - above
