Was Judas willing to betray the Master because he believed that Christ could and would deliver Himself from His captors? There are many students of the Bible who contend so and who say that Judas was not wholly bad at heart. The important point is that Jesus of Nazareth would not and did not save Himself from death by a violation of natural laws. For months Christ had been preaching to the multitudes, healing their afflictions and gaining converts to His cause. One after another, His disciples had been chosen until there were twelve, including the traitor, Judas Iscariot. Barabbas was arrested for the murder of Gabrias, who sneered at Judith whom Barabbaa loved. He was imprisoned by Pilate at the command of Caiaphas, who also loved Judith. Later Judith, to satisfy her lover Caiaphas, persuaded Judas to betray the Master. Pilate washed his hands of the affair and Christ was crucified. The people cried aloud for the release of Barabbas, and Pilate obeyed and set him free, Barabbas, having looked upon the face of the Master, was shaken with fear. With Judith, he went to the hill and beheld the sign of the Cross in the heavens. Judas, the traitor, hanged himself. When Judith viewed his body she became insane from grief and terror. Seeking out her lover, Caiaphas, she stabbed him and then turned the dagger upon herself.
