Sooooo Where is Judas?


Many assume that Judas is in hell for betraying Jesus, yet in Matthew 19 Jesus told his disciples that they would sit on 12 thrones judging the 12 tribes of Israel (presumably they got one each). So either despite his actions Judas is/will sit on a throne, or Jesus didn't have the faintest idea Judas would betray him at the time he made this statement. Regarding Matthias, he wasn't a disciple when Jesus made this statement so Jesus was talking to Judas, not to him.

    So when Jesus told Judas he would sit on a throne he was being economical with the truth then as you clearly point out this statement to Judas was later overturned.

    I think we are of similar mind here. Clearly Judas did repent otherwise Jesus statement that he would sit on a throne is null and void.

    So you believe Judas retains his position on a throne alongside the other apostles?
