Jesus and Judas

May 8, 2017

18 pI am not speaking ofall of you; I know qwhom I have chosen. But rthe Scripture will be fulfilled,4 sHe who atemy bread has lifted his heel against me. 19 tI am telling you this now, before it takes place,that when it does take place you may believe that I am he. 20 Truly, truly, I say to you,uwhoever receives the one I send receives me, and whoever receives me receives the onewho sent me.

One of You Will Betray Me

21 After saying these things, vJesus was troubled in his spirit, and testified, wTruly,truly, I say to you, xone of you will betray me. 22 yThe disciples looked at one another,uncertain of whom he spoke. 23 zOne of his disciples, whom Jesus loved, was reclining attable aat Jesus' side,5 24 so Simon Peter motioned to him to ask Jesus6 of whom he wasspeaking. 25 bSo that disciple, cleaning back against Jesus, said to him, Lord, who is it?26 Jesus answered, dIt is he to whom I will give this morsel of bread ewhen I have dippedit. So when he had dipped the morsel, fhe gave it to Judas, gthe son of Simon Iscariot.27 Then after he had taken the morsel, hSatan entered into him. Jesus said to him, iWhatyou are going to do, do quickly. 28 Now no one at the table knew why he said this to him.29 Some thought that, jbecause Judas had the moneybag, Jesus was telling him, Buy whatwe need kfor the feast, or that he should lgive something to the poor. 30 So, afterreceiving the morsel of bread, he immediately went out. mAnd it was night.

Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus

18 When Jesus had spoken these words, nhe went out with his disciples acrossothe brook Kidron, where there was a garden, which he and his disciplesentered. Now Judas, who betrayed him, also knew pthe place, for qJesus often met therewith his disciples. rSo Judas, having procured a band of soldiers and some officers fromthe chief priests and the Pharisees, went there with lanterns and torches and weapons.Then Jesus, sknowing all that would happen to him, came forward and said to them,tWhom do you seek? They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus said to them, Iam he.1 Judas, who betrayed him, was standing with them. uWhen Jesus2 said to them,I am he, they drew back and fell to the ground. So he asked them again, tWhom do youseek? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, I told you that I am he. So, ifyou seek me, let these men go. vThis was to fulfill the word that he had spoken: Ofthose whom you gave me I have lost not one. 10 Then Simon Peter, whaving a sword, drewit and struck the high priest's servant3 and cut off his right ear. (The servant's name wasMalchus.) 11 So Jesus said to Peter, Put your sword into its sheath; xshall I not drink thecup that the Father has given me?
