Who is Judas to you? – april 16

Reading Matthew 26 14-27

I have often been intrigued by the presence of Judas at the Last Supper. Here is Jesus knowing he faces death, sharing his last meal with his disciples and he shares it with the man he knows will betray him – wow! But maybe thats exactly what love really looks like.

In other parts of the Bible Jesus criticises the Pharisees because they only invite their friends to eat with them – ‘even the pagans do that he says’. I imagine that the pain Jesus felt was immense and yet he still welcomes Judas to the meal.

So then I ask who are the people who have betrayed me and what does it mean to treat them like Jesus treats Judas?
