According to some, Judas betrayed Christ

to force him to declare his divinity,

and thus cause a great

rebellion against the rule of Rome.

Well, I think that what

Judas did was superfluous.

Jesus preached

daily in the synagogue

and did miracles in front

of a lot of people.

There was no need for the betrayal of

an apostle to identify the teacher.

However, it happened.

Is it a mistake of the Holy Scriptures?

Or a simple casual event

in the most beautiful drama in the world?

No, there was no error.

Judas's betrayal was not accidental.

- Explain yourself.

- It was a predestined fact.

And it is related to redemption.

The word 'Jesus', by becoming flesh,

went from eternity to history.

He passed from the divinity without limits

to changeability and death.

A spoken word

crucified Christ.

To correspond to such a sacrifice,

It was necessary that a man,

on behalf of all men,

made an adequate sacrifice.

And it was Judas Iscariot,

alone among the apostles,

who intuited the secret divinity and

the terrible purpose of Christ.

Wait. Jesus did not need to use a

man to redeem all men.

He could count on considerable

resources offered by omnipotence.

And we do not know anything about the traitor.

Only in the Gospel of John is it said

that he was a thief and a greedy one.

Assign his crime to greed?

I do not think so, it's too simple.

Do not forget that he was an apostle.

Chosen to proclaim the kingdom of heaven.

To cure the diseases, clean

the lepers and resurrect the dead.

That's why I'm sure that

Greed was not the cause.

I suggest

another version of betrayal.

An extravagant

and unlimited asceticism.

The ascetic, for the greater glory of God,

degrade and mortify their flesh.

Judas did that with the spirit.

He renounced honor, good,

to peace, to the Kingdom of Heaven.

And why did not he

renounce his renouncement?

Why did not that man

renounce his renouncement?

With a terrible lucidity

he premeditated his offense.

Almost all sins

have dual nature.

In adultery there is usually love.

In murder, courage.

And in blasphemy,

a certain splendor.

Judas chose those

offenses for some virtue.

Abuse of trust and betrayal.

He acted with great humility.

He considered himself unworthy of being good.

Judas searched for hell because

he was satisfied with the happiness of the Lord.

I thought that happiness,

like the good,

is a divine attribute

and can not be usurped by man.

The water of the forest flows serene.

But we can be cruel or suffer.

It is a simple perversion or

exacerbation of the mental game. Nothing else.

I have not finished!

The fact is that God stooped to be

a man to redeem humanity.

His sacrifice was perfect. One that can not

be shrunk or invalidated by any omission.

But that sacrifice

was a great success.

After just 33 years passed among people

he won universal recognition.

In exchange for the agony of a single

night on the cross he got a lot of fame.

You're wrong. The crucifixion

of God has not stopped.

Everything that has happened once

is repeated over eternity.

Do you think that Judas continues to receive

the silver coins and kiss Jesus?

Continues tying

the hangman's rope?

Of course. And the word of God made

man, which is what Christ was,

it was not the fruit of a moment,

but an exact prophecy.

Did you say that Jesus

is just a word?

Now listen to the most important thing.

This is the third version

of the betrayal of Judas.

God became man completely.

And if he could feel tired,

cold, hungry and thirsty,

we should admit that he could also

sin and condemn his soul.

God became a man until he arrived

to infamy, to culpability.

To save us, he could have chosen

any of the destinations that weave

the uncertain cobweb of history.

He could have been Alexander the Great

or Pythagoras or Ririk or Jesus.

And he chose...

a sadly famous destination.

But, dear, if that is true,

You have unveiled a terrible secret.

The Latin writer, Valerio Sorano, died

for revealing the secret name of Rome.

What infinite punishment would be yours

for having discovered and divulged

the terrible name of God?

I refuse to listen to this!

We are on the edge of the abyss.

This building is collapsing!

I'm going to my farm. Come with me.

I can not.

THE GUES Based on the story by Jorge Luis Borges

'The gospel according to Mark'

Written and directed by


Holy Golden Age!

When there were neither laws nor officials.

And the people respected

justice by own wish.

They did not know fear

neither punishment nor judgments.

They did not read threatening sentences

in bronze plates.

The people lived in peace without courts.

Without knowing either Christ or the Antichrist.

They did not know

Judas or betrayals.

All the crimes were judged on

the basis of justice and trust.

That disappeared. The deceit, the betrayal

and the abuse came instead.

The war came. The hosts

could not believe their guests anymore.

And I am not saying this for you!

Come and help me!

Raise it up!

We have already arrived.

Watch out.

Scrub the stairs.

And polish them.

Place the sculptures.

Place the carpets.

Hang the pictures.

There has to be dust.

Do it tomorrow morning.

Now hurry up, we want to eat.

Make big dinner!

Better show me my room.

My head aches

and I prefer to rest.

Is it a goldfinch?

Do you need something, sir?

What's wrong? Are you feeling bad?

No, do not worry.

You look strange.

You have not recovered yet?

- Have you heard about that street?

- No. Where is it?

- Does not it remind you of something?

- No.

Why do you ask?

I have a stupid feeling.

A sensation or a desire.

I miss sites

where I have not been nor will I be.

Silly stuff. That means

that you are overworked.

You should rest. You can not repeat

your damned exams so many times.

- Excuse me, how old are you?

- 33


When will you finally find

a job of your liking?

Please, have a drink.

I need to go to the city.

I have to review some documents.

The idiot of my foreman packed everything.

I'll fix it and I'll be back

within a week.

I would take you with me,

but the trip would be uncomfortable.

It's not worth being overwhelmed.

I have warned the butler and

will treat you as if you were the owner.

Rest and do your exercises.

By the way,

have you seen the foreman's cabin?

He has lived there with his son

and his daughter for many years. His wife...

Remove that tree from the table!

His wife died long ago.

They are good people,

but they are very stupid.

Once I asked the foreman when

he was born and he could not answer.

Imagine, you do not know your date

of birth or the name of your father.

I have my own

theory about that.

I think a lot of the stories

of the people about their past

are the result of false

memories or mixed data.

- Where are they from?

- Who knows?!

The foreman works here

since the beginning of the century.

Sometimes they use

words that I do not know.

Jorge Luis Borges

Jorge Francisco Isidoro Luis Borges Acevedo (; Spanish: [ˈborxes] ( listen); 24 August 1899 – 14 June 1986) was an Argentine short-story writer, essayist, poet and translator, and a key figure in Spanish-language literature. His best-known books, Ficciones (Fictions) and El Aleph (The Aleph), published in the 1940s, are compilations of short stories interconnected by common themes, including dreams, labyrinths, philosophy, libraries, mirrors, fictional writers, and mythology. Borges' works have contributed to philosophical literature and the fantasy genre, and have been considered by some critics to mark the beginning of the magic realist movement in 20th century Latin American literature. His late poems dialogue with such cultural figures as Spinoza, Camões, and Virgil. Born in a suburb of Buenos Aires, Borges later moved with his family to Switzerland in 1914, where he studied at the Collège de Genève. The family travelled widely in Europe, including Spain. On his return to Argentina in 1921, Borges began publishing his poems and essays in surrealist literary journals. He also worked as a librarian and public lecturer. In 1955, he was appointed director of the National Public Library and professor of English Literature at the University of Buenos Aires. He became completely blind by the age of 55. Scholars have suggested that his progressive blindness helped him to create innovative literary symbols through imagination. By the 1960s, his work was translated and published widely in the United States and Europe. Borges himself was fluent in several languages. In 1961, he came to international attention when he received the first Formentor prize (Prix International), which he shared with Samuel Beckett. In 1971, he won the Jerusalem Prize. His international reputation was consolidated in the 1960s, aided by his works being available in English, by the Latin American Boom and by the success of García Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude. He dedicated his final work, The Conspirators, to the city of Geneva, Switzerland. Writer and essayist J. M. Coetzee said of him: "He, more than anyone, renovated the language of fiction and thus opened the way to a remarkable generation of Spanish American novelists." more…
