“Friend, do what you have come for.” ~Jesus to Judas

Jesus Quotes and God Thoughts


Jesus personally selected Judas to be a disciple. Jesus taught Him just like all the others. Jesus made him “treasurer” of the group and trusted him to keep the money. Jesus knew how it would all end.

Jesus picked him anyway.

When Judas betrayed him, Jesus called him “friend”. Jesus said it in kindness and love for Judas.

Jesus knew.

Jesus loved anyway. All the way to the end. And still today!

Immediately Judas went to Jesus and said, “Hail, Rabbi!” and kissed Him. And Jesus said to him, “Friend, do what you have come for.” Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and seized Him. | Matthew 26:50

Betrayal is very, very painful. Sometimes it seems like I just can’t let it go. It haunts me. Other days, not so much. This is common for many of us. We can’t get over it somehow.
