“Truly, truly, I say to you, that one of you will betray Me. The disciples began looking at one another, at a loss to know of which He was speaking” (John 13:21-22).

To dismiss Judas as an aberration among the disciples is a error in judgment; depriving one the opportunity to consider the equally tragic ways we betray Jesus each day. Each of the disciples were, themselves, wondering if they might be the one (Matthew 26:22; Mark 14:19) and, indeed, the hours following would bring their own forms of betrayal. The line between who loves Jesus and who betrays him is often clouded. If it had not been Judas it could just as easily have been me or you.
