Stations of the Cross (2)

 Jesus, betrayed by Judas, is arrested (Luke 22:47-48)

Luke 22:47–48 (NIV84)
47 While he was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the Twelve, was leading them. He approached Jesus to kiss him, 48 but Jesus asked him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?”

Jesus received the kiss from one of His disciples,
one whom He had personally chosen.
With this man and the others, He  had journeyed far together,
a good many times, of joy,  laughter.
Now with a kiss, Jesus was betrayed.
Jesus felt the pain at Judas’ choice,
Judas  had not chosen Him.

When You were misunderstood,
You silently forgave;
but we so often respond in anger.
Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

You gave us opportunity to choose Jesus,
but for so long we have chosen rebellion
that demanded Your death.
Lord, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
