Matthew 26:14-15 ” Then one of the Twelve – the one called Judas Iscariot – went to the chief priests and asked, ‘What are you willing to give me if I hand Him over to you?’ “

We know that the Jewish Leaders were already looking for a way to get rid of Jesus…of plotting how they might kill Him…and we can assume that word had gotten out onto the streets. We also know that Judas was a thief, only thinking of himself. This being revealed in John 12:4-6 when he objected strongly to the woman pouring the expensive nard on the feet of Jesus…calling it a waste of money. Not because he had such compassion for the poor, but because he was pilfering the moneybag he was in charge of. The question Judas posed to the Jewish Leaders overflowed with arrogance, haughtiness, and pretentiousness…”What will you give me if I singlehandedly give you Jesus?” The corrupt nature and operation of Judas’s evil heart was readily seen here as he chose to please self rather than please his God.
