Judas Died in Two Ways
|3 1 14|
Two different Bible versions exist about the death of Judas. The implications are great. And is there a right Bible version? How can it be proved, in case?
In the New Testament, Jesus promised to send the Spirit of Truth to the apostles. After they got it on Pentecost, different versions of how Judas died were made. Do you understand what that means?
Jesus advocates truth and righteousness [Matthew 21:32], and says in one place the real worshippers must worship in both spirit and in truth [John 4:24]. Also, "Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgement." - [John 7:24]
An opening by Luke should also be noted: "I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account". [Luke 3]. That is how to rise to the recorder's challenge. You can let truth, truthfulness, and heart-felt, heart-agreed-on righteousness support your outlook, and mental health and well-being through that. Lack of truths to base one's living on, tends to wreck havoc later on. Take care that no one deceives you -
The question is, "Can someone die in two very different ways according to the Bible?"
The two versions are taken from the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible.
Implications: Do not trust big liars that say they are filled with a truth-spirit
It is written that the Holy Spirit fell on the apostles only days after Judas died - the Reminding Spirit of Truth. But the two versions of how Judas died tell about very different ways of dying. One was by hanging, the other was by falling headlong and bursting so that all the intestines spilled out. And both versions cannot be true. Thus, there are great errors in the Bible The Spirit of Truth that fell on the apostles, did not come close to teaching all that the gospel-writers needed to present the actual facts about the death of Judas. Contrary to some of the words of Jesus in John 16:
"I have much more to say to you . . . But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth . . . He will bring glory to me by . . . making it known to you. [John 16:12-14]
Face the facts. He did not.
