Judas' Father


Recommended Posts

  • Independent Fundamental Baptist

I was reading in the book of John today and came across a few parts of a few verses that never seemed to register in my brain before:

Quote

(John 6:71) "He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve."

Quote

(John 12:4) "Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him,"

Quote

(John 13:2) "And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him;"

Quote

(John 13:26) "Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it.  And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon."

I know there are a bunch of Simons mentioned in the Gospels and Acts, but, if I'm not mistaken, only Simon Peter is mentioned in the book of John.  This leads me to believe that the Simon named in the above verses is Simon Peter.  What are some of the thoughts here?  Was Judas the son of Simon Peter and the nephew of Andrew?   I'm sure countless people have wondered about this and have debated it, but it's just a new-to-me kind of thing. (I really can't believe I never noticed this before)

I haven' studied it out much but I believe the accepted father was Simon the leper of Bethany. It was at Simon's house that Christ publicly rebuked Judas about the Alabaster ointment and it was there where Judas decided to find a way to betray Christ.

I'd looked to find my notebook that learned a few Wednesday nite studies not long ago at beginnin of summer lesson 

Simon was a common name in the Bible.

Judas' father was a different Simon not related to Simon Peter.

When they called him Judas son of Simon they were just clarifying which Judas they were talkin about because Judas was a common name.

Peter and Andrew are brothers.

Simon Peter main name was Simon, in Matthew 10:2 it says "Simon who is called Peter"

I hope that helps, but Simon Peter and Judas were not related

The Bible tells us that he is the son of perdition, that when he died he went to his own place, and Jesus said he was a devil.

This has led some to conjecture that Judas is the son of Satan in the sense that Jesus is the Son of God, and that a resurrected Judas will be the Antichrist during the Tribulation.

Kind of sounded plausible when Bill Bartlett preached that to us in chapel a couple of decades ago.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
