Was Judas a hero and most trusted disciple, or a traitor?

Is there a God? If so, what is She like?

Yes myths are retold and the intent is based on the moment of the telling. The myth is something selected for a purpose - to tell a story, or offer moral advice. If the myth does not fit, then another is chosen, or one is modified, fit for purpose.
The original intention is lost and irrelevant.

yep, and how Leviathan (the serpent) no longer was just that - Taimat - but morphed into Belial.
.
Case in point Hobbes referenced Leviathan without any regard for the original conception to tell his own story
ok, i know the name Hobbs - nothing more, utterly ignorant of the the man and his works, what was Hobb's story and point?

One bullshit over another. Just a bigger pile of poo.
Myths are not quite B.S. They are stories with messages.
You are going round in circles, now.

In the myth, do you see Adam as benefiting from ignoring Yahweh's command to not educate himself from the tree of all knowledge?

Did Adam do the right thing?
you are missing the point.
Adam did exactly what the myth telling made him do.
