Mark 14:10–11 (ESV)
to Betray Jesus
10 Then Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve, went to the chief priests in order to betray him to
them. 11 And when they heard it, they were glad and promised to give him money. And he sought an opportunity to betray him.
Judas, one of the Twelve whom Jesus appointed, decides to betray Him to the authorities. Even Judas’s betrayal of Jesus plays an important role in the plan of salvation, culminating
in the cross and empty tomb. Simple association with Christians or a knowledge of Christ cannot save. Only faith in Jesus as Savior rescues from sin and death.
I pray: My sinful heart would betray You, dear
Lord, and arrest my faith. Deliver me from evil by Your grace. Amen.
