How tragic was the life of Judas! Jesus called Him to one of His closest followers. Judas was privileged to walk with Him, eat with Him, learn from Him, and watch God-made-flesh dwell amid His creation. Despite all this, Judas betrayed his friend for a pocketful of silver coins.
After Jesus was sentenced to death, Judas could no longer bear the burden of his sin. In Matthew 27:1–10, we see how shame consumed him, leading him to take his own life. Join Pastor Chuck Swindoll as he explains this difficult passage and warns of the dangers of secret sins.
