Betrayal of Judas Iscariot: The Untold Story

Betrayal of Judas Iscariot: The Untold Story
James Scott Trimm

We read in Matthew:

19 And the talmidim did as Yeshua commanded them, and prepared the Pesach.
20 And when it was evening, He sat down at the table with His twelve talmidim.
21 And as they did eat, He said: Amen, I tell you, that one of you will betray Me.
22 And their anger was kindled exceedingly. And each one began saying, Am I he, my
23 But He answered and said: He that dips the hand with Me in the dish, the same will
betray Me.
24 And surely the Son of Man goes, as it is written of Him: but woe to that man by
whose hand the Son of Man will be betrayed. It [would] have been good for that man, if
he had not been born.
(Matthew 26:19-24 HRV See also Mk. 14:21)

But what did Yeshua mean when he said: “It [would] have been good for that man, if
he had not been born.” (Matt. 26:24 & Mk. 14:21)?  

You may not have known this, but Yeshua was actually quoting the Book of Enoch:

And when the Righteous One shall appear before the eyes of the righteous, whose chosen works hang upon YHWH Tzva’ot, And light shall appear to the righteous and the chosen who dwell on the earth, Where then will be the dwelling of the sinners, and where the resting-place of those who have denied YHWH Tzva’ot? It had been good for them if they had not been born.   
(1Enoch 38:2)

This passage in Enoch foreshadows a later verse:

And on the day of their affliction there shall be rest on the earth, and before them they shall fall and not rise again: and there shall be no one to take them with his hands and raise them: for they have denied YHWH Tzva’ot and His Messiah. The name of YHWH Tzva’ot be blessed.
(1Enoch 48:10)  

The Book of Enoch says that those who deny the Messiah have denied YHWH Tzva’ot (YHWH of Hosts) and that it would be better for them had they not been born.  By invoking these words from the Book of Enoch, Yeshua was plainly identifying himself as the Messiah.

I'm excited about your Enoch study guide...etc.  I have a question for you about that.  As in this study above...will there be a listing of ALL the direct quotes or inferences from the Book Of Enoch in the Old and New Testament.  I have heard numbers as high as 125....but I have never seen a definitive listing of all quotes.>

Love in Christ...Always
