Why Judas Was The Disciple Jesus Loved


For the last 17 years, I've cared for a colony of cats. Some of them have been beautiful. Some of them have had sweet dispositions. Kittens are ever adorable. I think I've loved them all.

However, at any moment during those years, I could have told you which cat I loved. It was the one stranded in a tree. It was the one with symptoms of upper respiratory infection. It was the one suffering seizures multiple times a day. It was the one suffering the last stage of kidney failure. I could go on.

When the hour came for him to depart out of this world, only one of his apostles was lost and in peril of perdition. I have little doubt that, at that hour, the disciple whom Jesus loved was Judas Iscariot.

I offer this idea only in my own name.
