Was Judas Iscariot saved?
The Bible clearly teaches that Judas was not a believer and was never saved. Jesus Himself made this declaration in John 6:
In calling Judas “a devil” Jesus was labeling him an unbeliever, a child of his spiritual father, Satan.
As Jesus indicated when He dismissed Judas from the meal, He required that one of His apostles be an unbeliever so that someone would betray Christ in the end. True believers in Jesus wouldn’t have betrayed the Lord in that way, yet it was necessary that Christ die at the hands of a betrayer. So the Lord chose to include Judas in His inner circle of disciples despite being without faith.
