quandary

When Judas seeks to betray Christ, he kisses the Lord’s cheek. I don’t understand the manner in which this constitutes a betrayal. I mean, obviously it was, since the chief priests et. al were willing to pay hansomely for the service. What I’d really like to know though is what actually made this a betrayal?

It’s not like the chief priests didn’t know who Christ was, so they didn’t need a simple “this is the one!”. Did they?

This is just one of those things that I’ve always taken for granted, but I was wondering about the other night.

  1. Maybe the Garden of Gethsemane wasn’t well-lit, and Jesus forgot to wear his traditional shining white robe and bright red sash.

  2. LOL. Yeah…and the light couldn’t reflect off his Nordic blue eyes.
