    Nice try but that only accounts for the money Judas received. Looking for the person, the actual prototype, and the verses that person is found in that matches both of the passages I referenced in St. Matthew’s Gospel.

  2. CatholicHack

    close… very close. There is a much better fit still to be found. Keep trying. Remember to look for a match that takes both verses in St. Matthew’s gospel into account.

    Hey Joe, since I already have the CD set, can I still play?

  4. CatholicHack

    Sure… if you win, did you want a 2nd CD set or would I be able to give you my CD set and then give the Scott Hahn set away to another contestant?

  5. Roy Ornelas

    Ok — I believe it is Ahithophel.

    Specifically in 2 Samuel chapters 15 thru 17 where Absalom and Ahithophel conspire against David. The closest I got to the scripture verses are the following:

    2 Sam 15:30-31; 2 Sam 17:1-4 go with Mat 26:47-56

    2 Sam 17:23 goes with Mat 27:3-5

  6. CatholicHack

    You got it!

    Ahithophel is a type of Judas because his advice was to go out AT NIGHT to take/kill the king & HIS flock would be scattered. Then in the verse 23 of 2 Sam. 17, when his advice is NOT heeded he hangs himself!

    Judas brings out the hoard with clubs at night to take the King of Kings… when he pleads with the Priests to let Jesus go, and they didn’t take his advice, he hangs himself.

    Good work!

  7. Al vargo

    Matt 26: 47-56 is foreshadowed by 2 sam 15: 1-3
    Matt 27: 3-5 is the fulfilment of 2 sam 17:23

  8. Roy Ornelas

    Well Ahithphel is like Judas in that he conspires against Christ. He uses deceit to try and approach David like Judas. When he realizes that his plan has failed, he kills himself just as Judas.

    Thus Christ is David
    The Chief priest is Absalom.
    Ahithophel is Judas

    Hope that is what you are referring to.

    Wow. I guess I need to get back into scripture. I was looking at the sale of Joseph by his brothersin Genesis. I know that Joseph is a prototype of Jesus, but I couldn’t figure out the Judas….Going to go read 2 Samuel now…..
