Story from the Eyes of Judas
“Is this what my life has become? Look at me now, big boy on the street, J guy, when I speak money follows. Where did it all go wrong? I went to school, got the best grades and started my business but yet the money did not come. I struggled and there was no progress. Food is scarce even money to pay house rent is hard. Hmmm, let’s not even think about electricity bills and water. Then this man came along, Jesus Christ. I heard he had prospects. People loved him and maybe he could become the next Governor, so when he asked me to follow him, I did. We went from one village to another, one state to another, and the North, South, East, and West accepted him. I was so happy, I thought he will contest for the Presidential elections and I will become a minister. What does he do instead, he starts talking about humility and washing the feet of those lesser that you? I, J guy who speaks and money follows, washing people’s feet and serving them when I should walk on their backs and be worshiped by them. Never!! Look at my small cousin, He is working in an oil company and drives a Range Rover Sport car. He just got married to a beautiful wife. He is living a good life while I am here, trying to be holy. its so annoying ”
Judas is approached by two prominent members of the society called Pharisee and Chief Priest, who are scared that Jesus would have the political clout to take away their influence in the society.
Pharisee: “Judas, we greet you oh, how is everyone at home?”
Judas: “My leaders I greet you too. What can we say, we are managing?”
Pharisee: “why wouldn’t you manage when you pitched your tent in the wrong camp eh, I would have made you a great man but you decided to follow that Jesus character? I am not saying he is a bad person but business is business and his behaviour threatens our position.”
Judas: “I am sorry please accept me into your folds, I will do anything.”
Pharisee: “It Is too late for that”
Judas: On his knees begging “please I will do anything”
Chief Priest: “Pharisee, Let’s give him a chance”. To Judas “We will lift you from your miserable poverty situation if you plant some false evidence on your friend Jesus. Just give our men the sign once it is done and we will arrest him. If you do this, we will pay you 30 million Naira. “
Judas: “Consider it done.”
That was how Judas betrayed Jesus and got his 30millon Naira bank alert.
