Simon Peter therefore motioned to [John] to ask who it was of whom He spoke.
Then, leaning back on Jesus’ breast, he said to Him, “Lord, who is it?”
Jesus answered, “It is he to whom I shall give a piece of bread when I have dipped it.” And having dipped the bread, He gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
When Jesus revealed that one of the disciples would betray him, each asked, “Is it me?”
That makes me think that each thought about it.
While eating supper, John asks Him about the identity of the traitor.
Jesus indicates it is Judas Iscariot.
I’ve always wondered why John did not say, “Stop him!” as Judas went out the door.
Maybe John was stunned.
It couldn’t be Judas. They trusted him with the group’s money. He was an honest man in their eyes.
Of course, there is a second side to Judas. He was a liar and thief and often stole the group’s money.
Judas is the picture of a fake Christian – hanging with the Christian crowd but denying the power of God.
He sought to destroy everything God was building.
I’m sure all of us would be surprised at the actions of some people in church that change the way they act once they get away from the church crowd.
Don’t be a Judas.
