Blogging through The Orthodox Heretic day 18

The Mission of Judas is a thought provoking take on the disciple we love to hate. This story tells us of a dream Judas had that showed him everything that would happen, beginning with his betrayal of Jesus and going all the way through history with the church condemning him. He awakes knowing what he must do as without his betrayal the work of Jesus could not be completed.

Pete asks whether certain acts that appear to be fundamentally against God might actually be gestures of fidelity to God? Is it possible that Judas was also sacrificing himself to the mission of God's grace?

At the very least we must read this story and the scriptural text and wonder whether things are always or even ever as clear as they seem. And we must look at our own hearts and ask the same questions regarding our motivations and our fidelity to the call placed upon our lives.
