After all this, how could he be honored as a saint? Judas, the betrayer of Christ, and St. Jude are two different people. Our St. Jude goes by the name of Thaddeus in the Gospels of Matthew (10:3) and Mark (3:18). Since these were probably the earliest Gospels, perhaps they wished to be sure no one confused this apostle with Judas Iscariot. Later Gospels are more comfortable with calling this faithful apostle Jude or Judas, but they sometimes make the distinction from the other Judas very clear. See, for example, John 14:22. The history of how the apostle Jude Thaddeus became the "patron for hopeless cases" is not clear. Consider- ing the widespread devotion to him, however millions of Christian believe his prayers have great power before God.
