Judas

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Judas

by Joshua Arnold

Judas mourned more for his sin than most professing Christians do today. Not only did he mourn, but he paid restitution by giving back the 30 pieces of silver. He was deeply convicted of his sin, and did not make any excuses for it like most professing Christians do today. He didn’t say “well, God knows my heart”. He made no excuse for his sin whatsoever. Yet, Judas will be cast into the Lake of Fire. Read the rest of this entry

Crossing the Kidron

John’s gospel records what Jesus taught his disciples at the Last Supper.  After he finished he and his disciples left and went to the garden where he would be arrested.

When Jesus had spoken these words, he went out with his disciples across the brook Kidron, where there was a garden, which he and his disciples entered.
John 18:1

There was a brook called the Kidron between the room where the Last Supper was held and the place where Jesus was betrayed.  Of course they had to cross it.  At first this seems like an unimportant detail, but there is an incident in the Old Testament which shows the significance of going across this brook.

Matthias or Paul?

The book of Acts begins with Jesus telling his followers to remain in Jerusalem and wait until they are baptized with the Holy Spirit.  After he gave his final commands he was taken up into Heaven.  The promised baptism occurred in chapter two.  Between these two events Peter felt the need to take care of some unfinished business, choosing a replacement for Judas.

In those days Peter stood up among the brothers (the company of persons was in all about 120) and said, “Brothers, the Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke beforehand by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus.

It is written in the Book of Psalms,
‘May his camp become desolate,
and let there be no one to dwell in it’;
and ‘Let another take his office.’

So one of the men who have accompanied us during all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from the baptism of John until the day when he was taken up from us—one of these men must become with us a witness to his resurrection.”
Acts 1:15-16; 20-22

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. (Exodus 20:11)
