Judas Iscariot One of Jesus’ Twelve Apostles in the New Testament (Matt. 10:4; Mark 14:10; John 6:71; 12:4). His surname meant “man of Kerioth.” He was from the tribe of Judah and was the only Apostle who was not a Galilean. Judas betrayed the Lord. Received thirty pieces of silver for delivering Christ to one of the chief priests, Matt. 26:14–16 (Zech. 11:12–13). Betrayed the Lord with a kiss, Matt. 26:47–50 (Mark 14:43–45; Luke 22:47–48; John 18:2–5). Hanged himself, Matt. 27:5. Satan entered into Judas, Luke 22:3 (John 13:2, 26–30). David spoke of Judas’s betrayal of Jesus, Acts 1:16 (Ps. 41:9).
