Why did Judas's Kiss.... I thought I'd ask these questions. I never really heard much expounding on this subject. Question: Why did Judas 'kiss' Jesus, instead of just pointing him out to the soldiers and high priests when they came to arrest Him? Here's what I believe 'may' be 'some' of the answer. It seems that Judas kissed Jesus to add to the betrayal. He betrayed Jesus with what was supposed to be an act of friendship. It was the custom of the day at that time to 'greet' each other with a 'kiss' on the cheek or neck of a man. Rarely seen in in Christians today! Also I feel to exemplify the total evil that was in this man, Judas, who Satan used to 'hand over' our Lord! John 6:70: Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? John 6:71: He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve. This is practice can easily be seen in the following scriptures. Rom.16:16: Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you. 1Cor.16:20: All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss. 2Cor.13:12: Greet one another with an holy kiss. 1Th:5:26: Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss. 2] Have you ever received a holy kiss from a Christian brother or sister? My family and I have on occassions, where the person was full of the Love of God! And at times we initiated the 'holy kiss'! God Bless, Set Free!
