In presenting this, John's Gospel also makes it clear that Jesus is God. In the opening verse, John plainly declares that in the beginning Jesus (the Logos) was with God and was God. Throughout the Gospel many references are made to Jesus' deity. Most notable of these are where Jesus declares, "Before Abraham was born, I am (egw eimi)!". Though the Bible offers few details about Judas’s background, all four canonical gospels of the New Testament name him among Jesus’s 12 closest disciples, or apostles.
