Sermon Title: Judas Iscariot
Scripture Text: John 13. 21-30
We’ve been looking at the Twelve Disciples… how Jesus Christ prayed for them (all night!) and then called them, selected them and over three years meticulously trained them.
Tonight we consider one disciple in particular, no doubt the most difficult one to ponder, Judas Iscariot.
Scripture is very hesitant to identify anyone in hell or to inform us of specific people who have been relegated/committed to hell. Of all the character it is Judas who comes closest to being identified as being there and even here it’s only with these almost euphemistic words: “Judas who turned aside to go to his own place.” (Acts 1.25) He went “to his own place” – it doesn't say hell – just “his own place”. It’s one of many terrible mysteries surrounding this man – history’s most notorious villain.
I want to reflect on this twelfth disciple tonight and see both the terrible darkness in his story but also the terrible mercies it might provide us:
1. The Mysterious Wrongdoing of Judas
2. The Misguided Repentance of Judas (and a better way)
