Unlike the other disciples, Judas understands Jesus’s true message and that all of his flesh and bones are lies. Jesus tells Judas, "You will sacriﬁce the man that clothes me” (Gospel of Judas).

The plot began to proceed as Judas one of Jesus' twelve disciples planned to betray him; Judas planned to betray Jesus after the Passover meal.

Therefore, Hamlets character is caught between his Christian faith and the need to avenge his father’s death. The background behind the play of Hamlet has Christianity throughout every scene. Beginning with Prince Hamlet encountering the ghost of his father, with this encounter comes Hamlets decision to extract revenge by swearing to kill whoever murdered his father, which is later proven to be his uncle Claudius, who is granted rule after King Hamlet’s death.

One of the stories is that Judas, who was so overcome by grief, at the death of Jesus quickly went to repent after seeing his mistake. So, Judas repented, returned the thirty pieces of silver to the Priests, and then hung himself from the tree of Judas. There are two different endings to that one, the first is that he did it on purpose and the other says that Judas hanging himself was accidental. The other story is that instead of returning the thirty pieces of silver, he instead bought a farm. After buying this farm Judas threw himself down and his guts spilled out.
