This painting was inspired by the somewhat controversial idea that Christ's
most advanced pupil, or disciple, was Judas Iscariot. The idea being
that only he was consciously strong enough to fulfil the task of betraying
Christ, that the whole scenario was understood by Christ and Judas to
be necessary, and that it had to be acted out, to convey an esoteric
idea to future generations.
The painting's central figure represents Judas's character; his gaze
is toward heaven and the higher realms. His fellow pupils however remain
earth-bound with their look, seeing only the material story, stuck in
the world of duality.
