Mark 14: 10-11 ” Then Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went to the chief priest to betray Jesus to them. They were delighted to hear this and promised to give him money. So he watched for an opportunity to hand Him over.”

Jesus saw promise in him…his fellow disciples saw honesty, and entrusted him with the group’s money.  So what really happened to Judas?  He was the only non-Galilean among the twelve, so did that make him feel outside the group, not really belonging, not part of the inner circle?  Or did he feel frustration and disappointment that Jesus wasn’t taking over the Roman Empire by force as the disciples had envisioned?  What prompted Judas to abruptly change from an ardent follower to the most infamous betrayer in history?  It’s difficult to say,  but we all possess that same willful sin nature Judas did, and all of us could make that same treacherous  choice.
