A Tale of Two Betrayals: A Veil’s Difference between Judas and Peter — 16 Comments

  1. Powerful comparison, Maryleigh. I’ve been spending time in the upper room this week, pondering both Judas and Peter. Thank you for these thoughts and scriptures. May God continue to bless and enlighten you as you seek Him this Easter season.

  2. Wow, I’ve never seen the verses side by side like that although I’ve always thought about how Peter sought Jesus in hope and faith (like you said)…knowing only in Jesus…like you, I don’t know I will ever comprehend the depth of what Christ did for me…blessings to you and yours <3

  3. Oh, what a wonderful post! I soaked it in and truly enjoyed it. Very deep thoughts and so edifying to me tonight. God bless you, my friend. 🙂

  4. Interesting and thought-provoking comparison of the two men. I really enjoyed reading your piece, and I have a feeling it’ll be mulling around in my thoughts throughout the day. Good stuff. #raralinkup

  5. Whoa, such a powerfully profound post. Especially as you repeat the phrase “Two men. Two Betrayals. Two Choices. Two….” I have been contemplated both Peter and Judas lately, and how Jesus knew He would be betrayed and rejected by them and He loved them both anyway – to the very end. I found you today at Meg’s #TeaAndWord … Blessings

    Also, I would love if you would consider linking up to my NEW Thursday Party #TuneInThursday it stays open until Sunday. You can find it here:

  6. I love this comparison, Maryleigh. Very profound and inspiring! I especially love this little line, “Yet, the power of faith always proves stronger than the burden of sin.” So true and so encouraging. We don’t have to remain weighed down in our shame and guilt when we have Christ, the High Priest, who provided the sacrifice for our sins! Love your thoughts, my friend!

  7. There is a lot of food for thought in your post and thank you for putting the time it takes to lay out the truths in those two men. I am with the other women, I will be pondering some of it for a while…

  8. Hi Maryleigh! What a beautiful comparison of these two followers of Christ. I never really thought about this being a story of looking for repentance in the law vs. in the mercy of Christ. Thank you for lighting that lamp for me, it makes absolute sense.
    Jesus came to fulfill the law, the law no longer the yardstick. If Judas would have only seen how Christ would forgive, how different the ending of his story would have been. I hope and believe in that forgiveness.

  9. I’ve never given that much thought to the similarities and differences in how these two betrayed Jesus. This is very insightful and a great reminder to accept the grace offered to us!

  10. What a great post, Maryleigh. I have never seen their 2 betrayals compared and explained the way you did. It makes the difference between law and grace so clear. Sharing and pinning on my “Posts Worth Reading” board.

  11. Maryleigh, this is a great Bible study, friend! Bravo to you. I’d never thought before about comparing Judas and Peter, but they did both betray Christ. I’ve been reading about Jesus’ last days (before Easter) so I was glad to read this. (And I LOVE Les Miserables, for it’s theme of grace.)

  12. Well thought out post that really made me think! Love the parallel! Also, I have a pastor named Eddie Turner too! =)

  13. Wow Maryleigh, that was powerful. I love how your parallel has brought the differences of law and grace out so beautifully. Loved reading this and am inspired to go and reread these portions of scripture. Great post
    God bless
