The Wrong Side of the Law

In this week’s episode, Fr. Marc and Richard reflect on John 12 and how the dialogue between Jesus and Judas illuminates an uncomfortable tension between Scripture and human systems of ethics and morality. Twisting a deconstructive prophetic mechanism (preaching on behalf of the poor against the rich) into a moral principle, Judas finds himself on the wrong side of the Law–in this case–the scroll of the Torah made flesh in the gospel narrative. This week’s program concludes with a special musical performance by children from the Ephesus School. (Episode 14)
