A Crime of Passion by Russell Nichols

The Christian time traveler cocked the revolver as Judas pleaded for his life.

“If you kill me, you’ll be a murderer!”

“I’m saving Jesus.”

“But if you save Jesus,” said Judas, “who will save you?”

The Christian time traveler pondered this, then holstered the gun and went back home.
