To many Judas Iscariot is a man of mystery. Modern theologians have elevated him to a place next to Christ in heaven. Since the mid 19th century many have proclaimed him a revolutionary patriot. The Puritans called him a covetous wretch and a traitor. In this new work, William C. Nichols examines Judas in myth and legend, and Judas in his roles as apostle, covetous hypocrite, traitor, son of perdition, false penitent, and suicide. He also looks at the unregenerate heart and the sovereignty of God in the life of the most infamous man in history. There are many lessons that can be learned from a study of Judas Iscariot which can help us today. There have always been multitudes in the churches that are very much like Judas and will share his fate in eternity. The chapters in the book are Judas in Myth and Legend, Judas the Apostle, The Unregenerate Heart, Judas the Covetous Hypocrite, Judas the Traitor, Judas the Son of Perdition, Judas and Sovereignty, The Repentance of Judas Iscariot, The Suicide of Judas Iscariot, and Learning from the Life and Death of Judas Iscariot.
