Not everyone liked Jesus or thought he was doing what the promised Messiah should do. Judas and others expected a mighty warrior who would how power against the Romans, not someone who would suffer and die at their hand. Perhaps we still struggle to accept Jesus as he is – not as we want him to be.
This is Pastor Mary’s second message in the series, “Shadow Savior: Not the Savior You Want, but the Savior You Need.” It is based on Matthew 26: 14-16, “Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus.” Today’s reading starts at about 1 minute 38 seconds into the video, but it is helpful to watch it from verse 6, about 37 seconds into the video.
