The Sedona United Methodist Church library is open before worship every Sunday. Stop by and see what's new!
Judas is one of Biblical history's most unfortunate and tragic figures. He became a pawn in Satan's evil game to destroy the Messiah, an act that would ultimately fail as prophecy predicted in Genesis 3:14 - 15.

Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, “Why
Jesus calls upon twelve individuals to become His apostles—Among the twelve are James and his brother John, sons of Zebedee to whom he gave the nickname Boanerges, which means “sons of thunder” (Mark 3:17). You don’t get a nickname like “Sons of Thunder” for no reason. But that is how Jesus’ disciples, James and John, were known. They were rough-tough fisherman—amazing and colorful characters. They never backed away from a
