Judas Iscariot Father of All Vampires
The Book Of Alugah, The Story Of God's Punishment For Judas Iscariot
Is Judas Iscariot The Father Of All Vampires?
Legend says that vampires originated with the apostle who betrayed Jesus Christ and that is Judas Iscariot. We all know the Bible story that Judas betrayed Christ for 30 pieces of silver and when Christ was crucified Judas tried to return the 30 pieces of silver and when the priests would not take it back he cast the silver coins away from him and when and hung himself. You can find reference to this in Matthew 27 3-5. Some legends down through the years say that those that commit suicide can become vampires.
Judas Iscariot according to a Hebrew Legend was the first vampire ever in history. Though ancient writings from around the world mention vampire like creatures being around several thousand years before Christ.
It is said by some that vampires have two separate beginnings. One from Judas and one from a creature from very ancient times. Egyptians told of a creature much like a vampire that was said to have existed six thousand or more years ago.
It is suggested by some that vampires having an aversion to crosses, holy water, and silver can be traced back to the Judas legend. What we don't know is if its true.
The specific quote from the bible is.
Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that. 5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. (Matthew 27:3-5)
What we all want to know is if Judas died when he hanged himself or was he condemned to haunt the earth for the rest of history as a vampire. If so is Judas the father of all vampires?
The Book Of Alugah, The Story Of God's Punishment For Judas Iscariot
In a very old book that I purchased in Jerusalem the story of God's punishment for Judas Iscariot is revealed. I believe the book to be authentic. It is leather bound and was written by a Catholic Monk in the year 843 AD. I purchased it in an old book store on a dusty alley in Jerusalem and it took me several years before I was able to read it. You see it was written in Aramaic which is said to have been the language of Jesus Christ. I was able to get a professor in New York to translate it for me in exchange for him being able to keep a copy of the book.
The Story Of How God Cursed Judas Iscariot
The Monk named Aed tells the Hebrew legend in the book that God punished Judas Iscariot after Judas hanged himself by restoring life to him and that God cursed him to live until the last days. God is said to have told Judas that he would fear the sun and the light of day and that he would roam the night. He went on to tell Judas that the life is in the blood and that blood from living humans would be the only thing Judas would ever feed on again. The book does not say anything about it having to be the blood of Christians.
The book does say that God told Judas that you will never find the comfort of death. Nothing will kill you or your kind but you will seek the darkness and live in dark moist places. Wishing that you could taste water again but it will never cross your lips. You will walk through the many years in front of you remembering what you have done and what has been done to you in return. And you will know that your end will be in a burning lake of fire that will never go out.
God told Judas that he knew Judas would have many off spring and that they too would be cursed the same as Judas to be creatures of the night and to feed only only blood. God is said to have told Judas that wine or sweet water will never cross your lips again. God went on to tell Judas that in the end at the end of days that Judas and all his offspring would be cast into a burning lake of fire along with Lucifer and his demons where you will remain forever.
The book does not tell how the off spring of Judas would be created or where they would come from. But it does say that Judas would have many offspring and they would be cursed the same as Judas.
God told Judas that anything to do with Christ or Christians would be an aversion to Judas and his kind including silver. God is said to have told Judas that you betrayed my son for silver and that silver will betray you. The book does not explain what this means exactly. And it does not say anything of why God created a vampire race. The word vampire does not appear in the book but several references to Creatures of the Night are made.
It does make me wonder why God would have created a race of beings to feed on the blood of humans. And that is basically the whole story from the book. It does not reveal any deep dark vampire secrets. The story is written by hand in ink and some of the story could not be read because it had been damaged by water. The rest of the book is interesting history of that time in Jerusalem but it says nothing else about vampires. It is likely that the Monk Aed heard the story from other people and that he wrote down what he heard. That is how things were done in that time. So we know that the legend did exist at one time. We don't know if that was all of the story or if there is more of the story that was not told or written down by the Monk.
Some Interesting Vampire Information
Vampires are not mentioned anywhere in any modern version of the Christian Bible. Demons are but not vampires.
Vampires have been talked about and been a part of Eastern European culture for thousands of years. The vampire has been a part of East European and Irish folklore for thousands of years and vampire hunters were very real. Real people really did try to hunt down and hunt vampires. This has continued even into modern day England. A major vampire hunt went on in 1970.
Many people ( Vampire Hunters ) have been arrested by police in English graveyards complete with crosses, garlic, wooden stakes and hammers. Some people really do believe in the existence of vampires. Arrests have occurred as recently as July of 2009. Almost always the charges are dropped before the case comes to court but the arrests are made of vampire hunters.
Vampire Hunters have even been arrested this year ( 2011 ) in New Orleans. These are not nuts but people who really believe they are hunting vampires. Some with elaborate equipment.
Judas Iscariot The Father Of All Vampires
And there is a legend among the Hebrew people that God cursed Judas and said that Judas and his decedents would roam their earth as creatures of the night until the end of time. They believed that Judas Iscariot had red hair in life and that vampires with red hair were directly descended from Judas.
The Hebrew legend goes on to explain that vampires have an aversion to silver because of the fact that Judas was paid with 30 pieces of silver for his betraying Christ. Judas tried unsuccessfully to return the 30 pieces of silver so he cast it away from himself and went and hung himself. And the legend says that God refused to allow Judas to escape that way so he ordered him and his decedents to wander the earth as vampires.
However another legend says that Lucifer ( The Devil ) refused to allow Judas to die from hanging himself so he created a half human , half demon race out of Judas and condemned him and his kind to roam the earth to the ends of time. This legend goes on to say that all vampires have red eyes and fangs and will burn if exposed to direct sunlight.
But keep in mind this is a Hebrew legend not anything from the Christian Bible.

Judas Iscariot Father Of All Vampires
There is a not well known legend from the Jewish people that Judas was condemned by God to wander the earth and was never allowed to see the sun. The legend says that Judas is a vampire and that he and his descendants are condemned to wander the earth and feed on the blood of Christians. I was told that every vampire was created by Judas or his vampire descendants. I was told about this legend when I was in Jerusalem in the 1980s. I was able to purchase a very old hand written book in a Jerusalem book store that had some of the legend in it.
It was a very old Jewish man who told me where to find the book I purchased and I was not allowed to record or photograph him. I wish I had been able to record the story. The man told me that very ancient vampires lived under the old city of Jerusalem. He said that he had seen these ancient creatures and they always drank the blood of Christians. The book only says that Judas and his offspring would have to feed on the blood of humans. It does not say Christians.
He told the story that for thousands of years these creatures had lived in caverns or tunnels under the city and that they preyed on the blood of the faithful of Christ.
I am interested in what people have to say on this subject in the comment section below.
