The Betrayal Of Jesus
Certainly one of the saddest moments in the life of Jesus was His betrayal by Judas… One of Jesus’ closest disciples, even one of His twelve apostles – Mt 26:47-50 “While he was still speaking, Judas came, one of the twelve, and with him a great crowd with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and the elders of the people. Now the betrayer had given them a sign, saying, “The one I will kiss is the man; seize him.” And he came up to Jesus at once and said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” And he kissed him. Jesus said to him, “Friend, do what you came to do.” Then they came up and laid hands on Jesus and seized him.” Judas had been privileged to be a part of Jesus’ ministry here on earth – Ac 1:17 “For he was numbered among us and was allotted his share in this ministry.”‘ What led Judas to betray his Lord and Savior? How could one who had been with Jesus, seen His miracles, heard His teachings, betray Him with a kiss? What about us, who claim to be Jesus’ disciples today? Could we be guilty of betraying Jesus in some way? Are there things that misled Judas that could have a similar effect on us?
I Will be posting each day some ways that we can betray Jesus for your thought and consideration.
