The Chosen includes Judas.



It is impossible for God to lie:

Hebrews 6:18  "In-order-that through two unchangeable things, in which (it-is) impossible (for) God to-lie, we-might-be-having strong comfort, the (ones) having-fled-for-refuge to-retain of-the hope lying-before (us);"


Jesus is God:

John 10:30 "I and the Father are one."



Jesus (YHVH) chose Judas:

John 13:18 I-am not saying concerning all of-YOU.  I myself-am-knowing-absolutely whom I-chose-for-myself, BUT in-order-that the scripture might-be-fulfilled, The (one) chewing the bread with me he-elevated his heel upon me.

v37 All which the Father is-giving to-me will-be-present with me, and the (one) coming to me by-no-means might-I-cast-out without.

v38 Because I-have-descended-and-am-still-descended out-of the heaven, not in-order-that I-might-be-doing the will (namely)-mine, BUT the will of-the (one) having-sent me.


None that the Father has given to Jesus are “lost”:

v39 But this is the will of-the Father having-sent me, in-order-that all which he-has-given-and-is-still-giving to-me, I-might not destroy out-of it, BUT I-shall-stand it again in the last day.

v40 But this is the will of-the (one) having-sent me, in-order-that every (one) the (one) observing the Son and trusting with-reference-to him, might-be-having life eternal, and I myself-shall-stand him again in-the last day.




Scriptures says that Judas trusted in Jesus, and Jesus said that those that trust in him have eternal life, and that Jesus will stand them in the last day:

John 6:67 The Jesus said therefore to-the twelve, Are YOU yourselves also willing to-be-withdrawing?

v68 Simon Peter therefore answered to-him, Lord, to whom shall-we-go-away? You-are-having sayings of-life eternal;

v69 And we ourselves-have-trusted-and-still-trust and we-have-come-to-know-and-still-know that you yourself-are the Messiah the son of-the God, namely-the (one) living.

v70 The Jesus answered to-them, Chose I not for-myself YOU the twelve, and out-of YOU one is (a) slanderer?

v71 But he-was-saying (of) the Judas iscariot of-Simon, for this (one) was-being-about to-be-giving him over, being one out-of the twelve.



Jesus said Judas would be one of twelve judges:

Matthew 19:27 Then the Peter having-answered said to-him, Behold, we ourselves-let-go all-(things) and we-followed with-you; so what will-it-be to-us?

v28 But the Jesus said to-them, Amen I-am-saying to-YOU, that YOU the-(ones) having-followed with-me, in the regeneration, at-the-time-that the son of-the MAN might-be-seated upon (the) throne of-his glory, YOU also yourselves will-be-seated upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of-the Israeli.




Jesus prayed:

John 17:6 I-manifested your name to-the MEN whom you-have-given-and-still-give to-me out-of the world. Thine they-were, and you-have-given-and-still-give them to-me, and they-have-kept-and-still-keep your word,

v7 Now they-have-come-to-know-and-still-know that all-(things) as-many-as you-have-given-and-still-give to-me, (are) of you;

v8 Because the sayings which you-have-given-and-still-give to-me I-have-given-and-still-give to-them, and they themselves-took (them), and they-came-to-know truly that I-came-out from you, and they-trusted that you yourself-dispatched me.

v9 I myself-am-interrogating concerning them; I-am not interrogating concerning the world, BUT concerning whom you-have-given-and-still-give to-me, because they-are thine.

v10 And all my (things) (are) thine, and the-(things) thine (are) mine, and I-have-been-and-still-am-glorified in them.

v11 And I-am not still in the world, and these are in the world, and I myself-am-coming to you. Holy Father, you-keep-them in your name whom you-have-given-and-still-give to-me, in-order-that they-might-be one (thing) according-as we.


The New Covenant began at the death of its testator, Jesus.

Hebrews 9:16 For where-in-which (there-is-a) covenant, (it-is) (a) necessity (a) death to-be-being-brought from-the (one) having-himself-covenanted;
 v17 For (a) covenant on deads (is) firm, since it-is (not) at-any-time being-strong when the (one) having-himself-covenanted is-living.


Judas died before the New Covenant.  Judas regretted his sin.  He went to the chief priests, confessed his sin and returned the silver coin. Jesus had not died yet, so this was before the New Covenant's testator (Jesus) had died.  So Judas was still under old covenantal law. There was nothing further he could do.

Matthew 27:3 Then Judas the-(one) giving him over, having-seen that he-was-condemned, having-regretted, he-turned-back the thirty silver-coins to-the chief-priests and to-the elders,
v4 Saying, I-sinned having-given-over innocent blood. But the-(ones) said, What (is-it) to us? You yourself-will-see.
v5 And having-thrown the silver-coins in the sanctuary he-retired, and having-gone-away he-hanged-himself.

Judas perished (hung himself in remorse).  That is, he died.

v12 When I-was with them in the world I myself-was-keeping them in your name:  Whom you-have-given-and-still-give to-me I-guarded, and not-one out-of them perished, unless the son of-the destruction, in-order-that the scripture might-be-fulfilled,



“But now”

v13 But now I-am-coming to you; and I-am-speaking these-(things) in the world in-order-that they-might-be-having the joy, namely-the mine, having-been-and-still-fulfilled in them.

v14 I myself-have-given-and-still-give your word to-them, and the world hated [note past tense] them [thus the past tense includes Judas], because they-are not out-of the world, according-as I myself-am not out-of the world.

v15 I-am not interrogating in-order-that you-might-remove them out-of the world, BUT in-order-that you-might-keep them out-of the evil (one).

v16 They-are not out-of the world, according-as I myself-am not out-of the world.

v17 YOU-make them holy in your truth; the word namely-the thine is truth.

v18 According-as you-dispatched me into the world, I-also dispatched them into the world;

v19 And in-behalf-of them I myself-am-making-holy myself, in-order-that they themselves also might-be having-been-and-still-made-holy (ones) in truth.

v20 But I-am not interrogating concerning these only, BUT also concerning the (ones who) will-trust through their word with-reference-to me:

v21 In-order-that they all might-be one-(unit?), according-as you, Father, (are) in me, and-I in you, in-order-that they themselves also might-be one in us, in-order-that the world might-trust that you yourself dispatched me.

v22 And I myself-have-given-and-still-give to-them the glory which you-have-given-and-still-give-to-me, in-order-that they-might-be one, according-as we ourselves-are one:

v23 I in them, and you in me, in-order-that they-might-be having-been-made-perfect with-reference-to one, and in-order-that the world might-be-coming-to-know that you yourself-dispatched me, and you-cherished-them according-as you-cherished me.

v24 Father, I-am-willing whom you-have-given-and-still-give to-me in-order-that where-in-which I-am myself those-also might-be with me, in-order-that they-might-be-observing the glory, namely-the mine, which you-gave to-me, because you-cherished me before casting-down of-(a)-world.

v25 Just Father, even the world came not to-know you, but I myself-came-to-know you, and these came-to-know that you yourself-dispatched me.

v26 And I-made-known to-them your name and I-shall-make-(it)-known; in-order-that the charity which you-cherished me might-be in them, and-I in them.

Luke 23:34a " But the Jesus was-saying: Father, you-forgive them, for they-are not knowing-absolutely what they-are-doing."


Who is Jesus, that he instructs the Father?

John 10:30 "I and the Father are one."


It is impossible for God to lie:

Hebrews 6:18  "In-order-that through two unchangeable things, in which (it-is) impossible (for) God to-lie, we-might-be-having strong comfort, the (ones) having-fled-for-refuge to-retain of-the hope lying-before (us);"



It seems to me that, as Jesus has forgiven a horrid sinner such as me, he likewise has also forgiven Judas.


Luke 23:34a "But the Jesus was-saying: Father, you-forgive them, for they-are not knowing-absolutely what they-are-doing”.
