Why No Judas Iscariot in the Writings of Paul

Judas Iscariot became a traitor when he made the covenant to deliver Jesus to the chief priests; but Jesus responded successfully to that trespass and gained his brother Judas in accordance with his teaching.

Also in accordance with his teaching, Jesus never spoke of the trespass to anyone other than Judas.

The will of the Father of Jesus was for Jesus to raise up Judas again at the last day; and for that reason, Judas worked only the last hour. Afterwards, the will of Jesus was that Judas tarry until he comes.

These boldfaced/italicized statements are two reasons why the apostle Paul, if he knew of Judas and/or his act of treachery, would have refrained himself from writing about him or that act.

Nevertheless, I write about them in my own name.
