Lent can help us recalibrate our anthropology:
καὶ γὰρ ὁ ἄνθρωπος τῆς εἰρήνης μου, ἐφ̓ ὃν ἤλπισα,
ὁ ἐσθίων ἄρτους μου, ἐμεγάλυνεν ἐπ̓ ἐμὲ πτερνισμόν·
Psalm 40:10 (LXX)
Indeed, the person at peace with me, in whom I hoped,
he who would eat of my bread, magnified trickery against me.
Jesus will apply this verse to Judas in John 13:18: The one who ate bread with me has turned his back on me.
And this was one of the 12! Even one of Jesus’s inner circle would turn his back on him. A sobering reminder of all that Jesus endured as we “journey toward the cross” this week.
