April 1, 2015 (Matthew 26:14-25)

“What are you willing to give me if I hand Him over to you?” Why did Judas do this? People have been speculating ever since the event. John’s gospel implies that it’s greed. (Judas held the money pouch) Others thought maybe he was discontented and Jesus wasn’t taking strong enough action against the Romans and Judas wanted to force Him into taking action? Who knows for sure? Whatever the reason, we think it was better “if he had never been born.” A betrayer is never liked.

Before we throw too many stones, don’t we betray Jesus ever time we sin? “Is it I, Lord.” Do my actions betray You, Lord?
