In Christian lore, the name “Judas” is synonymous with the word “traitor.” He was the disciple that Jesus predicted would betray him and hand him over to the Romans. Judas was an obedient follower who ended up turning Jesus into his pursuers.

The torture that Jesus experienced at the hands of the Romans was horrific. That alone sealed his reputation for betrayal to the Christian faith for millennia to come.
