18 "I'm not talking about all of you. I know the people I've chosen [to be apostles]. However, I've made my choice so that Scripture will come true. It says, 'The one who eats my bread has turned against me.'
19 I'm telling you now before it happens. Then, when it happens, you will believe that I am the one.
20 "I can guarantee this truth: Whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me."
21 After saying this, Jesus was deeply troubled. He declared, "I can guarantee this truth: One of you is going to betray me!"
22 The disciples began looking at each other and wondering which one of them Jesus meant.
23 One disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, was near him at the table.
24 Simon Peter motioned to that disciple and said, "Ask Jesus whom he's talking about!"
25 Leaning close to Jesus, that disciple asked, "Lord, who is it?"
26 Jesus answered, "He's the one to whom I will give this piece of bread after I've dipped it in the sauce." So Jesus dipped the bread and gave it to Judas, son of Simon Iscariot.
27 Then, after Judas took the piece of bread, Satan entered him. So Jesus told him, "Hurry! Do what you have to do."
28 No one at the table knew why Jesus said this to him.
29 Judas had the moneybag. So some thought that Jesus was telling him to buy what they needed for the festival or to give something to the poor.
30 Judas took the piece of bread and immediately went outside. It was night.
