1. The First Love of Judas
Judas is widely thought of as the disciple who was a mistake - he was the one that betrayed Jesus. Did Jesus somehow not know this when he appointed Judas as one of the twelve? Was he selected intentionally to fulfill the prophecy of Zechariah 11:12-13? Or was it something else?
Scripture has just a few things to say about Judas, but they all seem to suggest that Judas loved money more than Jesus, and that ultimately led to his horror. Such misplaced love is still among us.
