Gospels and Acts of the Apostles

When did Judas betray Jesus?

Judas led the authorities to Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed. Judas greeted Jesus with a kiss, and said, “Greetings, Teacher!” Jesus replied, “My friend, go ahead and do what you have come for.” (NLT, Matthew 26:49, 50) After Jesus was arrested, Judas repented, but it was too late. He threw the silver coins down in the temple. He then went and, according to Matthew, hanged himself. In the book of Acts, Luke wrote that Judas died when he tripped over a rock, and his stomach burst open (Acts 1:18).
