Scriptural Meditation- Matthew 26:31

Yeshua then said to them, “Tonight you will all lose faith in me, as the Tanakh says, ‘I will strike the shepherd dead, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’ 


This is sad, but it isn’t the end of the story. Setting aside Judas, the rest of the disciples are not forever lost. This isn’t an excuse or justification to lose faith or wander or stray. This is an opportunity to awe and be humbled by the Almighty’s mercy and forgiveness. Betrayed and abandoned by friends, Yeshua seeks them out and enjoys time with them after his resurrection. There is no bitterness or angst, there is open-armed forgiveness when we turn from our sins and repent.
