Forum Hour: "A Defense of Judas Iscariot"

The Rev. Dr. Frank Wade led a two-week forum April 27 and May 4, entitled "A Defense of Judas Iscariot."

In offering the forum, Dr. Wade explained:  Judas has gotten a lot of "bad press" over the past two thousand years. One could argue, though, that there are facts and implications in the Bible that cast him in a much different light. We will engage in a "Forensic Bible Study," presenting the case for seeing Judas as a struggling fllower like the other disciples and, unlike the other disciples, the first to get a glimmer of what Jesus was really about.
