User comments for Judas (Meaning / History Only)

Judas Maccabeus was one of the first leaders of the Maccabean revolt.

Judas and Jude are different forms of the same name. Over time Christians have come to associate one with Judas Iscariot and the other with Saint Jude. Both are wonderful names so it is too bad that Judas has such a terrible historical connection.

Although I understand why no one ever would want to use this name, Jesus actually had two disciples called Judas and the other one wasn't evil.

You've got your facts twisted. There was ONE Judas, the betrayer of Jesus. Trust me - I KNOW.

Judas was actually a common name at the time. There are SEVERAL of them in the Bible, and they're not all bad.

The good Judas is called Jude in English but both are called Judas in Swedish.

There is a third Judas mentioned in the New Testament, who was brother of Jesus.

How do you know, were you there? :)
BTW, take a look at Luke 6:16 and John 14:22.
