Who was Judas to Jesus before the crucifixion? What role did he play amongst the disciples of Jesus? How long was he one of the twelve disciples and at what point was he no more one of those twelve disciples?
Did Jesus tell his twelve disciples (including Judas) that they will sit on thrones with him in heaven and judge the twelve tribes of Israel? Yes or No.
Answer: "And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel" (Matthew 19:28).
Judas forfeited his position when he betrayed Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane (Matthew 26:48). Judas later committed suicide (27:5).
Did Jesus tell his twelve disciples which included Judas at the time that they will sit on thrones and judge the twelve tribes of Israel before Judas forfeited his position? Yes or No?
Note how short my question is. No need to respond with a whole book. Just a simple yes or no. Thank you.
Answer: Have you not read what I wrote in previous post concerning Matthew 19:28.
Was Judas amongst the disciples when Jesus made the promise in Matthew 19:28? Yes or no?
By the way, you shifted some words in your Matthew 19:28 quote above but nonetheless it still includes Judas amongst the 12 disciples who will sit on thrones and judge the twelve tribes of Israel. Are you now willing to admit that Judas was also included in Jesus promise in Matthew 19:28 or are you still going to stubbornly pretend that he wasn't included.
