"I'm not talking to all of you -- I know which ones I have chosen. But the words of the Tanakh must be fulfilled that say, `The one eating my bread has turned against me.'
I'm telling you now, before it happens; so that when it does happen, you may believe that I AM [who I say I am].
Yes, indeed! I tell you that a person who receives someone I send receives me, and that anyone who receives me receives the One who sent me."
After saying this, Yeshua, in deep anguish of spirit, declared, "Yes, indeed! I tell you that one of you will betray me."
The talmidim stared at one another, totally mystified -- whom could he mean?
One of his talmidim, the one Yeshua particu larly loved, was reclining close beside him.
So Shim`on Kefa motioned to him and said, "Ask which one he's talking about."
Leaning against Yeshua's chest, he asked Yeshua, "Lord, who is it?"
Yeshua answered, "It's the one to whom I give this piece of matzah after I dip it in the dish." So he dipped the piece of matzah and gave it to Y'hudah Ben-Shim`on from K'riot.
As soon as Y'hudah took the piece of matzah, the Adversary went into him. "What you are doing, do quickly!" Yeshua said to him.
But no one at the table understood why he had said this to him.
Some thought that since Y'hudah was in charge of the common purse, Yeshua was telling him, "Buy what we need for the festival," or telling him to give something to the poor.
As soon as he had taken the piece of matzah, Y'hudah went out, and it was night.
