Holiday Reading Room: PICTURE STORIES FROM THE BIBLE "New Testament: Story of Jesus Part 2" Betrayal on Good Friday

Now that's a long title...
Art by Don Cameron
...for the most unusual comic to ever come out of DC/AA/EC Comics stable!
We're starting in the middle of the book, the Tuesday before Good Friday...
Written and edited by Montgomery Mulford, illustrated by Don Cameron.
Initially-published under the All-American Comics imprint, Picture Stories from the Bible was carried-over to publisher Max Gaines' new company Educational Comics, when he sold All-American outright to Detective Comics (which became National Peroidical Publications after the merger) in 1946.
EC Comics continued to reprint the Bible series both as single issues and as hardcover compilations of the complete seven-issue series and separate Old and New Testament editions.
The series inspired a host of copycats from other publishers including Atlas (Marvel), Living Bible Corporation, Nedor/Standard. and Eastern Color Corp, none of which lasted as long as EC's series.
