Judas Plan for Betrayal

In Matt 26:14-16, Judas Iscariot after the rebuke of Jesus and other possible areas of disillusionments went to the chief priests and said he would betray Jesus for a price.  There have been many interpretations for what motivated Judas to betray Jesus.  This of course is speculation.  What we do know is that the price of Jesus’ betrayal was thirty pieces of silver.  This was told about in the book of Zechariah.  From that moment on Judas would be looking for an opportunity to betray Jesus.  What we also know is that satan would enter Judas and he would be the instrument of betrayal and the sign of this betrayal was a kiss on the cheek.  The lesson we learn is that if we do not guard our hearts even the mostly connected person we are in relationship with could betray us or the Lord.  So keep you heart right, watch and pray.
