If there is a character that has fascinated all generations in the Bible, it is that of Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve disciples of Jesus Christ. He stands out as educated, thrifty and well known personality in Judea. The Master must have wished to count on his qualities for the mission he was to undertake, and so assigned him the important responsibility of being the steward of the chief treasurer of the new, “Jesus evangelization outfit.”
This story indeed finds few sympathisers for this traitor. Yet, it easily fits as the current norm of Kenyans, believers and non-believers alike, caught in this trap of dishonesty. For a few coins, we are ready to betray not only what we believe in, but even our very own children. And still Christ washed his feet!
