Judas sucks! However, your painting is great. I hate judas though. He should be ashamed of himself betraying the Son of God for thirty pieces of silver.

Did you know that in those times, thirty pieces of silver was the price of a slave? Selling Jesus Christ for this much is degrading even more as Judas was, in a since, saying that Jesus was worth nothing more than a slave--the lowest class of people during that time period.

You'll have to excuse me. I know that Bible like the back of my hand and know all the history around it. And, whenever i see paintings, pictures, or images concerning Biblical stories or characters, I'm compelled to speak about them. I'm an avid reader and very spiritual though I do never claim to be perfect as that is blasphemy in itself. Shame on those holy than thou clergymen!
