Judas Betrayal & Peters Denial

Reflection on the Gospel of the Tuesday
In Holy Week

 

John 13: 21-33, 36-38

It is so heart warming to read the evangelist John mentioning in todayโ€™s Gospel ‘๐™…๐™š๐™จ๐™ช๐™จ ๐™ฌ๐™–๐™จ ๐™™๐™ž๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™š๐™จ๐™จ๐™š๐™™ ๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐™จ๐™ฅ๐™ž๐™ง๐™ž๐™ฉ’. Yes, Jesus was indeed troubled in spirit, knowing that one of his disciples would betray him. He was aware too that a horrible death was approaching Him.

Even in the mist of His inner turmoil, Jesus highlights a more mysterious side to what was about to happen. The Son in His passion and death glorifies the Father, by being obedient to His will. The Father in turn glorifies the Son by accepting gladly His fidelity and crowning Him with glory and honour. Isnโ€™t there a great lesson for us to learn here? In the centre of our own personal turmoilโ€™s are we willing to see/feel the fidelity of Jesus that is He being with us through all of it? In the mist of our waiting and the searching, in the healing and the hurting, every minute, every moment Jesus is there to glory Himself through our turmoilโ€™s.

Jesus also sees how Peter is caught between what he said โ€œ๐™„ ๐™–๐™ข ๐™ง๐™š๐™–๐™™๐™ฎ ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™œ๐™ž๐™ซ๐™š ๐™ข๐™ฎ ๐™ก๐™ž๐™›๐™š ๐™›๐™ค๐™ง ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ชโ€ and what he did โ€œ๐™๐™ง๐™ช๐™ก๐™ฎ, ๐™„ ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ก๐™ก ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช, ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™˜๐™ค๐™˜๐™  ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ก๐™ก ๐™ฃ๐™ค๐™ฉ ๐™˜๐™ง๐™ค๐™ฌ ๐™—๐™š๐™›๐™ค๐™ง๐™š ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช ๐™๐™–๐™ซ๐™š ๐™™๐™š๐™ฃ๐™ž๐™š๐™™ ๐™ข๐™š ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ง๐™š๐™š ๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ข๐™š๐™จโ€. Donโ€™t we too swing back and forth like Peter did? In this holy week and forever let us know in the certainty of Jesus’ love that there is always another day, another chance, another joy in our following of Jesus, in spite our weakness and failing to follow Him at certain times.
