John 17 (pt 3)

What was it that drove you, Judas, down this path?

And are you lost in the darkness of eternity,

or stumbling slowly towards the embrace of light?


Did you hope, as some believe,

To force your beloved into clear political action,

To show his power to the oppressors?


Did the thirty silver coins convince you to betray?

Their persistent whispers rising to a crescendo,

That drowned out the beauty of His symphony.


Were you always distracted by the potential of betrayal,

Waiting in the wings for your moment to shift the power,

Or was it simply accidental – an afterthought, regretted.


Judas – I hope that you found peace,

That your soul looked up from your crumpled corpse,

And met the loving gaze of He who forgives all.


“…None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.” [John 17:12]
