I remember once speaking to a foreign audience through a translator. She had difficulty whenever I used certain colloquial expressions such as "cut to the chase".

Very good answers from everyone Its apparent that Judas was not predestined for it was prophesied "The one whom I trusted" Jesus was deeply troubled by this, that someone he trusted would do such a thing.
