Season 1: Episode 21
The Curious Case of Judas Iscariot
Date Aired: 04/11/2023
For our final Easter episode, Helen and Dave tackle the biggest Easter “baddie” of them all, Judas Iscariot. Everyone knows that Judas betrayed Jesus, but… did he? The gospels, as usual, each put their own twist on Judas, and there’s compelling evidence that the character of Judas may have been borrowed from an earlier betrayal tradition involving King David. To clear it all up, we welcome special guest Paul Middleton, professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of Chester.
