Betrayed by a Kiss

His betrayer had arranged a signal with them, saying, "The man I shall kiss is the one; arrest him and lead him away securely."   He came and immediately went over to him and said, "Rabbi." And he kissed him.



Today is the start of Holy Week.  We are faced with the betrayal, passion and death of Jesus.  Today we are faced with what we have done to contribute to Jesus' betrayal, Jesus' passion and Jesus' death.

The song writer Michael Card was written a song "Why" with the following opening verse:

Why did it have to be a friend
Who chose to betray the Lord
Why did he use a kiss to show them
That's not what a kiss is for

Only a friend can betray a friend
A stranger has nothing to gain
And only a friend comes close enough
To ever cause so much pain

I am the friend who has betrayed by a kiss....

Lord have mercy...
Little Flower, please pray for me.
