I wonder what Judas was thinking.
Did he know his betrayal would lead to death?
Did he know at the beginning the final result of his road?
Did he think the authorities would flog Jesus,
just to get him back into line a little bit,
and then release him?
Could he have ever truly grasped the depth of the role he would play in God’s eternal plan?
Part of me thinks the betrayal of Judas wasn’t quite so sinister as we often believe.
Part of me wants to think that Judas thought it wouldn’t be “that bad”.
But at the core I am troubled
because my betrayal of Jesus
sometimes seems very innocent.
When I betray him
it doesn’t seem “that bad.”
And I wonder
if that’s what
Judas thought too.
i got my new toy in today – a nikon 80-200 f2.8 lens that i picked up for $379 on keh. the quality was surprisingly good for a “bargain” lens – i think i would definitely order from them again.
the lens is huge… it’s hard to actually put into words how big and heavy this thing is. it easily weighs 3 times what my d-70 weighs. i’m excited about getting out to take some shots with it, hopefully in the next few days…
on my way to school this morning…
you think he forgot to buy something?
as i possibly posted earlier, sonic changed their menu a couple of weeks ago. the new menu is a complete travesty, with my primary beef being that the chicken club toaster combo is strangely missing from the combo meals…
in my first trip back to sonic, i managed to snap a picture of the new combo’s on the menu. terrible, i say.
“the body of Christ, broken for you.”
“the blood of Christ, shed for you.”
Such old, simple words;
yet words that convey a depth of meaning and personality to a sacrament as old as Jesus himself.
And each week we take comfort
in a body broken
a blood shed
and for you
for each and every person
who would come forth
and receive it.
so i’ve come to the conclusion that zydeco is quite possibly some of the funnest music there is. tonight we went to (spent 5 hours at) a buckwheat zydeco concert, and it was awesome… definitely worth it if you can ever find a good zydeco group in your area!
if you’re ever in the area of marble falls during the summer around 7:00 on a thursday night, i highly recommend stopping by camp of the hills to view the crucifixion scene. i’ll probably head out there at least one more time over the summer, but here are some pics from last night… view all the images here.
