motioned to him to ask, “Who’s he talking about?” So that disciple leaned
over to Jesus and asked, “Lord, who is it?”
Jesus responded, “It is the one to whom I give the bread I dip in the
bowl.” And when he had dipped it, he gave it to Judas, son of Simon Iscariot. When Judas had eaten the bread, Satan entered into him. Then
Jesus told him, “Hurry and do what you’re going to do.” None of the others
at the table knew what Jesus meant. Since Judas was their treasurer, some
thought Jesus was telling him to go and pay for the food or to give some
money to the poor. So Judas left at once, going out into the night.
As soon as Judas left the room, Jesus said, “The time has come for the Son
of Man to enter into his glory, and God will be glorified because of him.
And since God receives glory because of the Son, he will give his own
glory to the Son, and he will do so at once. Dear children, I will be with
you only a little longer. And as I told the Jewish leaders, you will search for

know me.
“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.
There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so,
would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When
everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with
me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going.”
“No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said. “We have no idea where you
are going, so how can we know the way?”
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come
to the Father except through me. If you had really known me, you would

Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still
