"I am not talking about all of you. I know those I have chosen. But this will happen so that Scripture will come true. It says, 'The one who shares my bread has deserted me.'(Psalm 41:9)
"I am telling you now, before it happens. When it does happen, you will believe that I am he.
What I'm about to tell you is true. Anyone who accepts someone I send accepts me. And anyone who accepts me accepts the One who sent me."
After he had said this, Jesus' spirit was troubled. Here is the witness he gave. "What I'm about to tell you is true," he said. "One of you is going to hand me over to my enemies."
His disciples stared at one another. They had no idea which one of them he meant.
The disciple Jesus loved was next to him at the table.
Simon Peter motioned to that disciple. He said, "Ask Jesus which one he means."
The disciple was leaning back against Jesus. He asked him, "Lord, who is it?"
Jesus answered, "It is the one I will give this piece of bread to. I will give it to him after I have dipped it in the dish." He dipped the piece of bread. Then he gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon.
As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. "Do quickly what you are going to do," Jesus told him.
But no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him.
Judas was in charge of the money. So some of the disciples thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the Feast. Others thought Jesus was talking about giving something to poor people.
As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.
