Jesus Foretells His Betrayal
Interwoven Gospels

When Jesus had said these things, as they reclined at table and were eating, He was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, "Behold, the hand of him that betrayeth Me is with Me on the table. Verily, verily, I say to you, that one of you that eateth with Me will betray Me. The Son of man goeth, indeed, as it hath been appointed; but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!"

The disciples looked, one upon another, doubting of whom He spake. And they began to question among themselves, which of them it could be that was about to do this thing. And they were exceedingly sorrowful, and began to say to Him, every one, one by one, "Is it I, Lord?" Then He answered and said, "It is one of the twelve: he that dipped his hand with Me in the dish, that one of you will betray Me. The Son of man, indeed, goeth as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It were good or that man if he had not been born."

There was reclining at table in Jesus' bosom, one of His disciples whom Jesus loved. Simon Peter, therefore, beckoneth to John and saith to him, "Ask who it is, of whom He speaketh." Leaning back, as he was, on Jesus' breast, he saith to Him, "Lord, who is it?" Jesus, therefore, answereth, "He it is, for whom I shall dip the morsel and give it to him." Then having dipped the morsel, He taketh and giveth it to Judas, Simon Iscariot's son.

And Judas, who was betraying Him, answered and said, "Is it I, Rabbi?" He saith to him, "Thou hast said." Now after the morsel, immediately Satan entered into him. Jesus therefore saith to him, "What thou doest, do quickly," But no one of those reclining at table knew why He spake this to him. For some thought, since Judas had the purse, that Jesus said to him, "Buy what we have need of for the feast"; or that he should give something to the poor. He then, having received the morsel, went out immediately; and it was night.
