About Judas1

Savour it all

Windows on a world in pictures & prose... or just words on screen: This site is a collection of prose about life that I find therapeutic to play with.

Judas1 is a pseudonym I've used in reverence for the role of a devil's advocate within a group or society. The strength of people who perform such roles is something I admire and the story of Judas Iscariot is perhaps the most maligned example. Judas the zealot because, rightly or wrongly, he arguably betrayed Jesus to force the son of God to use his power against the Roman occupiers, and without Judas there may not have been a resurrection.
