“And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;”
King James Version (KJV)
13:2 Having now - Probably now first.
Joh 13:2 Supper being ended. The Revised Version says, "During the Supper". It is likely that Christ arose near the beginning of the feast, washed the feet, and then sat down again to the feast. See Joh 13:12. The devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot. The devil planted the seed, but the soil of his heart was ready. The devil has no power except where there is preparation for him. The covetous disposition of Judas had prepared the way.
