Judas Iscariot Photos
Judas Iscariot was an Apostle of Jesus who identifed Christ to Chief Priests by kissing him in the Garden of Gethsemane. For this betrayal, Judas was paid 30 pieces of silver, but guilt caused him to hang himself. In terms of Christian art, it is rare that Judas is portrayed and several saints have been used as substitutes in arrays of the original twelve Apostles.
