    JOHN 12:49 FOR I HAVE NOT SPOKEN OF MY SELF BUT THE FATHER WHICH SENT ME HE GAVE ME A COMMANDMENT WHAT I SHOULD SAY AND WHAT I SHOULD SPEAK***** 12:50 AND I KNOW THAT HIS COMMANDMENT IS --- LIFE EVERLASTING --- WHATSOEVER I SPEAK THEREFORE EVEN AS THE FATHER SAID UNTO ME SO I SPEAK

    Jesus knew the heart. Therefore, he must have enlisted Judas as his betrayer. Was Judas more evil then the next guy. All have sinned in this world and sin goes unabated. But every good story needs an antagonist and a hero. Seldom does the hero die, but all must die in real life. Jesus states that if we love this mortal life we will be deprived of our eternity. He is forever transcendent.

    " ...: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with Him." Notice the colon before the word 'but'. A colon always denotes something important. To sit at the 'table' with Jesus - is to 'eat' (absorb) His word as we gather together, Heb. 10:25. And, no, they weren't just having an ordinary meal, just a 'social'; not with Jesus present.

    Lk. 22:30; 1 Cor. 10:21 - the Lord's table.

    Irene: They were just having a meal, they were eating supper, meat potatoes milk wine water whatever. It wasn't church it wasn't communion just supper,they were hungry.
  • Irene123
    Vs. 1-2; are another prophesy of Acts 2:38; "... raised from the dead ..."; "... sat at table with Him." To sit at table with Jesus is to join together (Heb. 10:25) and 'eat' of God's Word.
