Betrayer Beware!

Then Jesus changed the subject (188): “But this verse from the inspired scriptures must come true: ‘The man who shared my food turned against me.’

“In other words, one of you here tonight will betray me.  I must be sacrificed as foretold in the inspired scriptures.  But it would be better for my betrayer if he had never been born.”

His students looked at one another, confused about this; Peter told John, who was sitting next to Jesus, to ask him which one of them he meant.  John did so & Jesus told him, “I will dip some bread in the sauce and give it to my betrayer.”

So Jesus took a piece of bread, dipped it, and offered it to Judas Iscariot.

Jesus knew that Satan was already controlling the thoughts & feelings & actions of Judas, so he said to him, “Hurry and do what you must!”

But the others at the table didn’t understand why Jesus said this to him. Since Judas was in charge of the money bag, some of the students thought that Jesus meant for him to go & buy what they needed for the festival.  Others thought that Jesus meant for him to give something to the poor.

Judas accepted the bread from Jesus & went out into the night.
