Q: Now, Lord, what say You to the notion that there is a despised one among us who confesses You yet the truth of that confession is unknown?
A: Did I not complete God the Father’s will even while one of my own choosing plotted to betray me and live? Why should you treat one of my own choosing in a way I did not even treat the one who betrayed me: even to my own death? May you be humbled, this night, to know that I alone am God and I alone am able to discern the heart of man. You would be wise to heed this gentle rebuke while you are able.
