Michael Voris points out that Judas Iscariot first turned away from Our Lord owing to a personal disbelief in Christ's teaching on His Real Presence in the Eucharist. Voris is referring to the end of chapter six of St. John's Gospel where followers and disciples of Christ abandon Him rather than accept His teaching that He is the Bread of Life.

After Christ repeats His teaching on the necessity of eating His Flesh and drinking His Blood, John 6:61 reads, "Many therefore of his disciples, hearing it, said, 'This saying is hard, and who can hear it?'" John 6:65 relates, "Jesus knew from the beginning, who they were that did not believe and who he was that would betray him."

The issue comes to a head with the focus on Judas as John 6:67–72 recounts:

After this many of His disciples went back and walked no more with him. Then Jesus said to the twelve: Will you also go away? And Simon Peter answered him: Lord, to whom shall we go? ... Jesus answered them: Have not I chosen you twelve; and one of you is a devil? Now he meant Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon: for this same was about to betray him, whereas he was one of the twelve.
