Two people can never have the same merit for the same deed. Two people can`t be as responsible for the same sin.
When a scholar of the law of God and a teacher of the law of God commit the same good deed, the first one has a greater merit than the second. When a scholar of the law of God and a teacher of the law of God commit the same sin, the second is more responsible than the first.
But despite these God knows better the people and judges more fairly than the people.
Moses killed a man with his hands and Judas didn`t kill anyone with his own hands, only betrayed Him. However, the sin and the punishment of the second one are more terrible and frightening!
