Judas (25 of 34)
Series: Jesus, the One and Only
ILLUSTRATION: It's like the story told to me last week by a Pastor friend of mine in Tennessee. Apparently his next door neighbor had attended his Church the past, but after a bought with cancer was no long able to get out and do as he want.

John 13:21-30 (NASB95)
