(more) Judas

Hatred controls the same glands as love: it even produces the same feelings. Had we not been taught how to interpret the story of the Passion, would we have been able to say by their actions alone whether it was jealous Judas or the cowardly Peter who loved Christ?

How do we interpret the actions of Judas? Did he act out of love? Did he think he was bringing about the Kingdom of God? Or did he do it because he asked to do it (also known as the Dumbledore Judas Theory)?


  1. I've never heard the phrase, but I'm a Dumbledore Judas Theory man.

  2. MTBT came up with the name. I like it. Someday I'll reference it in a sermon.
