Spy Wednesday — Betrayal
Today is known as Spy Wednesday. Coming in the middle of Holy Week, we are just days away from Easter, but tonight is the night when, according to the biblical account, Judas agreed to betray Jesus and disclose the disciple’s location so that the religious leaders could arrest Jesus. 30 pieces of silver. That was the price, that was the blood money that Judas took — the equivalent of paying off the life of a slave.
On today’s From the Touchline podcast, we look at Judas’ betrayal and betrayal moments that happen in football. If you have been around professional football for a length of time, it’s likely you have experienced some form of betrayal — whether as an athlete, a manger, or as a staffer. How do we respond to moments of betrayal in our lives. We take a closer look on today’s pod.
