Apr. 27- Ch. 27

There is something related to the crucifixion I don’t hear many talk about, and that is the raising of the dead when Jesus died. I think Matthew is the only one to mention it. I wonder if that is in Matthew’s original manuscript. It just seems strange to me.

    Judas is interesting. Judas who betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver seeing that Jesus was condemned felt remorse. He recognized that he had sinned. He recognized that he had betrayed innocent blood. He tried to give the silver back. It was not accepted by those who had bought the betrayal. Judas, feeling he had no where to turn, hanged himself. Judas was lost. In John 18:9 Jesus spoke, “of those whom Thou has given Me I lost not one.” Judas was never given over to Jesus to be protected by Him. Judas was lost. I wonder if we do not live in a world of the lost. I sometimes feel lost. To get my bearings requires I get back into relationship with God. Judas, unlike I, did not have the gift of the Holy Spirit to help him do that.

    I was also going to comment on the wraiths wandering around the city. I think that might have been hysteria on the part of Jesus’ followers. Thank you, Randy, for mentioning that Matthew is the only one who tells about that.

    Also, the thirty pieces of silver and the potters field. Wouldn’t these learned Jews have known about Jeremiah’s prophecy? I wonder when one of them finally thought of it, and they had to come to grips with the fact that they had “followed” the Word in their actions. Maybe some were converted then…?
