Sermon on Judas Iscariot — 3 Comments

  1. thank you for your insight on this subject of judas iscariot. It is hard to break old habits, one of which I am guilty of and that is pointing the finger at this man, before investigating his actions. He was a zealot and hoped with all the rest of the jewish population that either John the Baptist then later Jesus would lead them in revolt against the roman government. He betrayed Christ possibly in order for the arrest to provoke Jesus to action. But instead He remained faithful to His Father`s will: To redeem the man He made in His likeness and image by the shedding of His own blood. We need to take a lesson from judas to determine if now in this time, are we also betraying Him in our daily lives.

  2. It’s a long time ago, but I suspect it was a commentary by the Presbyterian scholar William Barclay.
