I was reading this reply from Jesus to the disciples and then realised that Judas would be one of the twelve at this point! [BIBLE]Mathew 19:28[/BIBLE] Did Jesus really say that the twelve disciples (including Judas) would sit on twelve thrones judging Israel? If so then surely He said so in jest? I thought this through and realised that it was possibly directed at the wider circle of disciples beyond the twelve. Then again Jesus was not revealing Judas as a traitor and agent of Satan. That was only done at the Last Supper and even then they failed to realise Judas' role in Christs betrayal. How do others read this passage? Who do you think it was spoken to and to what extent did it anticipate Judas being "replaced"?
