I enjoyed reading your post. I was happy to read as you wrote about Jesus’ knowledge of Judas’ betrayal. That is the prophecy I chose as the one that stuck out to me the most as well. I agree that “Jesus not only forgave his persecutors, but felt love for them.” I think we often think about Jesus’ pain on the cross but not his pain on the earth while he dealt with temptation, betrayal and more. Jesus dealt with a lot when he was on earth beyond just his final death on the cross. But thankfully, he didn’t avoid pain and discomfort and chose to love Judas and all other sinners, including us!
