Mike’s World View by Mike Henry
The apostles, afterward, wised up as to the true motives
of Judas Iscariot. Jesus, of course, knew all along, just as He knows
our true motives. John wrote (12:5-6) concerning Judas when he asked,
“Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given
to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because
he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put
in it.” Judas feigned compassion, but his true motive was greed.
