Judas, who betrayed Jesus, and Peter, who denied Jesus, both hit a low point in their lives when it looked as if they were done with Jesus forever. Yet these men responded in very different ways. Judas separated from the other disciples and gave up on faith in Christ completely. Peter chose a different and a better path.

Of all human beings, none passed so close to the gates of heaven on his way to hell than Judas Iscariot. His story, expertly told here by Colin Smith, is an urgent cautionary tale for each one of us.

Pastor Colin stays true to the Scriptures as he takes us on a journey, using his authentic and often poetic gift of storytelling to once again provide us with a unique and powerful perspective on the life of Judas.
