Why did Jesus have a Judas?
“Judas? Of course there was a Judas. If there wasn’t a Judas, He would have got a free pass. He didn’t come for a free pass. Christ came for the full experience.”
Join Fr. Brendan Kilcoyne for episode 84 of ‘The Brendan Option’ where he discusses the role of Judas.
“There’s a kink in us; there’s a twist in us; we’re traitors, backstabbers, gossips.”
“I put it to you that betrayal is a part of human life. I would put it to you that Judas is a part of human nature.. and if he weren’t there, we’d have to put him there. The Incarnation would in a sense be incomplete if it were not exposed – as every mortal human is – to human malice and malevolence.”
