(Rudyard Kipling, 1865-1936 — Nobel prize for literature, 1907)
If you have an "idea of something", you must express it: either you say it in proper words or you present the idea symbolically.
(Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, 1646-1716)
THE LAST SUPPER
Gospel of John 13—Jesus predicts His Betrayal
13:21—I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me
13:26—It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread. He gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, saying, What you are about to do, do quickly
13:30—As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out
13:31—When he was gone, Jesus said: Now is the Son of Man glorified and God is glorified in him
Gospel of Luke 22—Jesus arrested
22:48—Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?
Imagine if Judas had not kissed Jesus—to betray him!
The Gospel of the apostle Paul
Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David (2 Timothy 2:8)
Koran 4:157—They declared: ‘We have killed the Christ, Jesus son of Mary, the apostle of God’—They did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but they thought they did
The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, BEGINNING AT JERUSALEM (Gospel of Luke 24: 46/47).
How can we learn from the past-unless we—REMEMBER it?
