Okay, this story is one that I haven’t gotten, and honestly still don’t get. In John 13:18-30, Jesus tells the disciples that one of them is going to betray Him. John asks Him who it is. Jesus tells him that the betrayer is the one who Jesus hands the bread to. Jesus then hands the bread to Judas, tells him to go do what he has to do, and Judas leaves. But the disciples think he is going to do something good, not to betray Jesus. Why? Why don’t they get something so obvious?
Maybe Judas was that trustworthy? Maybe they didn’t think he would ever turn on Jesus. I don’t know.
Maybe they couldn’t imagine anyone turning against Jesus.
I’ve never understood this part of the last supper scene. Any ideas from anyone?
