Betrayal by a trusted friend

Prophecy of Judas Iscariot’s betrayal:

Psalms 41

Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.  -kjv

Even my close friend, someone I trusted, one who shared my bread, has turned against me.  -niv

Even my friend in whom I trusted, one who ate my bread, has raised his heel against me.  -hcsb

Fulfilment:

Luke 22

47 And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him. 48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?  -kjv

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?”  -niv

47 While He was still speaking, suddenly a mob was there, and one of the Twelve named Judas was leading them. He came near Jesus to kiss Him, 48 but Jesus said to him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?”  -hcsb

  1. This is the deepest sense of the word “betrayal”.

    Michael Card has a song that talks about this:

    Why did it have to be a friend
    Who chose to betray the Lord
    Why did he use a kiss to show them
    That’s not what a kiss is for

    Only a friend can betray a friend
    A stranger has nothing to gain
    And only a friend comes close enough
    To ever cause so much pain

  2. Many of us have had a Judas in our lives. Seems like they desert us when we need them most also. Jesus knows what we go thru on this earth. That helps him to be a “perfect” Lord & Savior since he was on this earth some 33 years and experienced problems and had feelings like we do. All we as humans can do is our best, read the Holy Word and pray on a daily basis. We too will be with him sooner than we think as fast as time flies by on earth. Jesus is the one we can ALWAYS depend on even if he does not answer every prayer the way we wish.
