From inside the hrs before their demise, Jesus informs their disciples that certain of these will betray him. Now, however, two different people that evening knew exactly exactly who that betrayer would be. Judas know, since he had been going to do the betraying. Jesus understood it, also. But despite the reality Jesus knows the “who,” he however frames his impending betrayal added as a concern. The guy doesn’t state, “we’ve a traitor within midst,” (remarkable stop) “there he or she is!” as an alternative, Jesus basically says, “certainly one of you can expect to offer myself for the right rates. Could it be your? Check out the minds … and be truthful.”

We know the disciples have the lbs with the question caused by exactly how shaky and uncertain their particular feedback is: “Could it possibly be I?” (Matthew 26:22 ESV) The way the question is phrased means a determined diminished esteem. You can nearly browse their particular responses since, “It’s not me personally, Lord … would it be?”

This is where Jesus may have answered, “No, it isn’t really your, Peter. Nope, perhaps not you either, John. It’s just among the questionable one sneaking outside now.” But Jesus continues to inform all of them it is not merely one of several disciples that will promote your away. Fairly, according to him “You certainly will all fall out” (Matthew 26:31, stress added). The other 11 disciples may not have ended up selling Jesus for 30 pieces of sterling silver (as Judas did), but none of them would go completely with Jesus. All of them have a price whereby they might walk away from Jesus.
