The Betrayal


Steve Durand - Mar 3, 2013

Ever had a moment when someone whom you trusted and loved ended up betraying you?

Jesus did.

Over the past 2,000 years, the name of Judas Iscariot has become synonymous with deceit, hypocrisy, and betrayal. After all, he carried out the plans that led to the brutal murder of the morally perfect, divine Son of God. Did God know beforehand that Judas would commit such treachery? If so, why would Jesus have personally chosen and invited Judas to be one of His closest friends and to be mentored by Him? Is it possible that Judas was really just a victim of his circumstances? What ultimately led Judas to his fateful decision? And where was God when all of this was happening?

We’ll explore these sobering questions this week as we continue our study of the last week of Jesus’ life.
