John 12:31

The judgement (krisi). No article, "A judgement." The next few days will test this world. The prince of this world (o arcwn tou kosmou toutou). This phrase here, descriptive of Satan as in possession of the evil world, occurs again in Acts 14:30 ; Acts 16:11 . In the temptations Satan claims power over the world and offers to share it with Jesus ( Matthew 4:8-10 ; Luke 4:5-8 ). Jesus did not deny Satan's power then, but here proclaims final victory over him. Shall be cast out (ekblhqhsetai exw). Future passive of ekballw. Note exw, clean out. The Book of Revelation also proclaims final victory over Satan.
