Luke 22:3 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 22:3

Then entered Satan into Judas
At the same time that the sanhedrim were sitting, and consulting about the death of Christ, Satan, or the adversary, as the word signifies, the devil, who is the enemy of the Messiah, the woman's seed, entered into Judas; not corporeally, as he did into those that were possessed by him; but he entered "into his heart", as the Ethiopic version renders it; he put it into his heart to betray him, as it is said in ( John 13:2 ) he stirred up, and worked upon the corruptions of his heart; suggested evil things to his mind, and baited his temptations agreeable to his malice and covetousness: and this man was surnamed Iscariot;
to distinguish him from another apostle of the same name; concerning this his surname, (See Gill on Matthew 10:4), (See Gill on John 13:2). Being of the number of the twelve;
apostles, or disciples of Jesus, as the Persic version reads, and which is an aggravation of his sin: now this being two days before the passover, shows, that the sop which Judas took, after which the devil entered into him, ( John 13:27 ) could not be the passover sop, but was the sop he ate at the supper in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, so long before it.
