The Price of Freedom
Here is a nugget from my studies this week:
[The Religious leaders] might have offered him ten or five pieces of silver, and he must still have stuck to his bargain. Yet none the less do we mark the deep symbolic significance of it all, in that the Lord was, so to speak, paid for out of the Temple-money which was destined for the purchase of sacrifices, and that He, Who took on Him the form of a servant (Phil 2:7), was sold and bought at the legal price of a slave (Exodus 21:32). p. 803 –The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah – Alfred Edersheim
Judas might have sold out Jesus for a third of what they offered. However, what was done was done and the actual price not only lined up with scriptural prophecy, but came from the actual money that they bought sacrifices with. How amazing is that?

That was really good. Thank you for sharing. I need to study more.
good to see you here on the blog. how is the hail damage coming? I missed you at church.
Thank you Pastor, we have a lot of beat up cars, and no end in sight.
I really missed church as well, a link of my weekly chain was missing.
I can not tell you how nice it was to log on and see the service this morning. What a blessing it was. What a great word was it as well; I am glad I did not miss it completley. Your train of thought on this one was nothing short of divine.
What a power packed weekend! Word & worship were incredible! I’m so thankful that I am a part of PromiseLand in San Marcos!!! I love you all!!!
Joshua, thanks for those comments. It is an honor to be a part of the train of thought.
