Has anyone ever wondered why Judas used a kiss? I am sure the people who arrested Jesus probably knew who he was. Even if they didn’t Judas could have just pointed him out. Another point of wonder and questions.
We often follow Communion with a hymn, stating that that’s what the disciples did at the Last Supper. Today I noticed that my footnote tells me that “The Passover fellowship was concluded with the second half of the Hallel Psalms (Ps 115-118).” That was very interesting to me. Skimming through these psalms, they are full of praises, concluding with 118:28-29: “You are my God, and I will give you thanks; you are my God and I will exalt you. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, his love endures forever.” How poignant to have sung that as they were ready to head for the Mount of Olives where Jesus was betrayed and the disciples ran away. There must have been a time of intense introspection and repentance by all of the twelve, not just Peter.
