Wesley's Notes for John 13:27


13:27 What thou doest, do quickly - This is not a permission, much less a command. It is only as if he had said, If thou art determined to do it, why dost thou delay? Hereby showing Judas, that he could not be hid, and expressing his own readiness to suffer.

Discussion for John 13

  • Alex
    Judas was a type of Judah that sold Joseph, but Joseph forgave all his brethren that sold him into bondage,When Jesus was on the cross he prayed FATHER FORGIVE THEM THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO, THAT INCLUDED EVEN JUDAS , HIS LOVE AND MERCY IS BEYOND OUR COMPREHENSION. KEEP In MIND Peter also betrayed him.Paul was killing Christians but God forgave Him.His love and GRACE is beyond our comprehension.
  • Donlee85
    Judas was chosen, but not by Jesus to betray him, God created us and gave us free will, when he put Adam and Eve in the Garden, it wasn't for them to fail, but the enemy came in, and therefore the fall of Man, It was in Judas heart and that's why the enemy chose him, it was already there and Jesus knew that, He(Judas) had a choice and he made it, and therefore paid the price for it.

    The foot washing was a HEART washing, Satan enters our hearts not our feet, Jesus had always said what comes from a MAN HEART is what DEFILES him, He neva said our personal hygiene defiles us. He says to eat with unwashed hands defileth NOT a man. Jesus said he that eateth bread with me has lifted up his HEEL against me,But Judas neva assaulted Jesus with his heel.ITS OUR HEARTS THAT NEED WASHING

    Verse 35: The identifying mark of true Christians would be that they have self-sacrificing love like Jesus had for his disciples.
  • A disciple
    Judas Iscariote was called and chosen from among the many of Jesus' followers, to be "One of the Twelve." The Lord gave him every opportunity to become what God had planned for him, and to be one of the Pillars of the New Testament; but Judas would not! When Moses sent the twelve men to spy out the land, and bring word to the Congregation; all could have been like Joshua and Caleb, but ten failed!
