Judas The Treasury Man
3/31/2009 5:45:49 PM    [ Flag as Spam or Inappropriate ]


"Then one of the Twelve - the one called Judas Iscariot - went to the chief priests and asked, "What are you willing to give me if I hand Him over to you?" So they counted for him thirty pieces of silver coins. From then on, Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over." (Matthew 26:14-16)



Of the Twelve Apostles that Jesus Christ chose, only one was very good at finances and marketing. Judas Iscariot was a treasury man, he held the purse for the group and was in charge of money matters. He was so good at computations and calculations, he even protested at the pouring of the expensive perfume by Mary, sister of Martha and Lazarus, upon the feet of Jesus, not knowing that it was a preparation for the death of the Savior.

"'Why wasn't this perfume sold and the money given tot he poor? It was worth more than a year's wages.' He did not say this because he cared for the poor but because he was a thief; a keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it." (John 12:4)

Judas was after the resale cost of the perfume, not the anointing of the Savior at Bethany. His mind was soaked in material returns and the bottom lines, and he was grossly disappointed in Jesus' refusal to bank on His popularity and seek political position or royalty. After all, Jesus had star quality and had charisma with the crowds, a good investment.

There are many like Judas today, they pretend to follow and "be" with Jesus, but they have their hands full with the funds they have no right to have access to, funds from the people, funds from the church. How many preachers have fallen because of the "Judas Syndrome" ? Wall Street is and example of the subtleties of a Judas mentality, "unconscious and unintentional cheating."

Judas was a very good marketing man too, he was so good at it he even sold the Son of God for thirty pieces of silver, but sadly, Judas did not know - he sold himself.

"The first and worst of all frauds is to cheat oneself. All sin is easy after that."
(Philip Bailey -poet)
