Abraham is signally honored in being called "the friend of God," Isaiah 41:8 James 2:23 . Christ granted a similar honor and blessing to his disciples, John 15:15 . It is a different word, however, in Greek, by which he addressed Judas, Matthew 26:50; the word there translated friend, means simply companion, and appears to have been used as a conversational term not implying friendship. The same word occurs in Matthew 20:13 22:12 .
