RKS Literature: Passage of the Day: Judas and Jesus

“The redbeard (Judas) growled and bared his teeth like a sheepdog that hears his master’s voice. Head bowed, he turned around and marched heavily over the bridge, talking to himself. He remembered when he roamed the mountains with Barabbas-God bless him-and the other rebels. What an atmosphere of ferocity and freedom. What a splendid leader of cut-throats was the God of Israel. That was the kind of leader he needed. Why did he follow this clairvoyant (Jesus) who was scared of blood and shouted, ‘Love! Love!’ like a panting-teen-aged girl. But let’s, be patient Judas reflected, and see what he brings from the desert! “

Nikos Kazantzakis “The Last Temptation” 1961
