He’s instituted the twelve of them

     Why is Judas treated by the Evangelists unequivocally – as a traitor, as a thief?  It’s because he sold Jesus for 30 pieces of silver.  But he returned these pieces of silver —he went back to the temple and said to the high priests: “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.”  Yet at the same time the eleven could not bear the risk and they disappeared for the time of Jesus’ trial, His condemnation to death, crucifixion, and burial; they did not stand by their Master.  How is Judas’ sin different from the sin of the eleven, who ran away?  And still it is Judas who was considered this sinner among the apostles, the one who'd betrayed Jesus.  And they did not see the betrayal in their actions?
