I heard something for the first time over the airwaves about Judas Iscariot, and I wonder if there are any among you learned men who knows soemthing about this, and any references we can find on it. It makes for an interesting study. Was Judas a Jew ? What the speaker said was that Judas was at most probably just half-Jew or not at all, and that Iscariot was a reference to his birthplace, a city or town called Iscaria or something. Thanks for any input.
