Judas is listed among the 12 disciples in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, which, along with John, also carry accounts of the betrayal ? What ?Iscariot? means is unclear, but it may indicate he was from the Judean village of Kerioth? Others named Judas in ancient Jewish and Christian literature include Judas Maccabeus, Judas Barsabbas, Judas the Galilean, and Judas, son of James? Judas was played by Ben Vereen in the original Broadway production of Jesus Christ Superstar from 1971-73.
