My Gramma and I are halfway through watching Firefly, which I’ve been a fan of since i first saw Serenity in theaters. To commemorate our inaugural viewing of the too-short series, and Loot Crate’s awesome new Firefly fan film, “The Verse”, (below,) I’ve finally created some fan art I’ve been dying to do.
While reading my daily devotions, I came across the portion of Scripture right before Jesus’ death, when Judas conspires with the chief priests. Before even introducing Judas, however, Scripture says this about him:
Then Satan entered into Judas called Iscariot, who was of the number of the twelve.
To those unfamiliar with Judas, this comes as something of a shock. Judas is rarely mentioned before this point, and even Matthew feels the need to remind us “[he] was of … the twelve” disciples.
So why was it so easy for Satan to possess someone so close to Jesus? Does this mean we are all at risk of possession at any time?
