Judas fulfilled Jesuss prophecy on earth by betraying him, thus making this betrayal a necessary one, and one of gods plans.

Extracts from this document...


R.S homework David Shternberg 1. As the evening began, after Jesus and His disciples had celebrated the Passover, they came to the garden. At some point, Jesus took three of them?Peter, James and John? to a place separated from the rest. Here Jesus asked them to watch with Him and pray so they would not fall into temptation, but they fell asleep.
