John 13:18-30 // 6 Ways to Handle Betrayal

May we never betray Jesus and give a place to Satan, but rather love and serve Him all the days of our lives for in doing so we are loving and serving God the Father.

JOHN 13:18-30

18 “I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. [John 13:10-11] But this is to fulfill this passage of Scripture: ‘He who shared my bread has turned against me.’ [Psalm 41:9]

19 “I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am who I am. [Isaiah 46:10, 48:12-15] 20 Very truly I tell you, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me.” [John 5:43; 6:40 & Matthew 10:40-41]

21 After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, “Very truly I tell you, one of you is going to betray me.” [Hebrews 4:15]

22 His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant. 23 One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him. 24 Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, “Ask him which one he means.”

25 Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, “Lord, who is it?”

26 Jesus answered, “It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.” [Mark 14:20] Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.

27 As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. [Luke 22:3] So Jesus told him, “What you are about to do, do quickly.”

28 But no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him.

29 Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the festival, or to give something to the poor.

30 As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.
