Oct 23 11.18 Then, deeply troubled, Jesus said, “Truly, I say that one of you eating with me will betray me. The Son of man goes as it is written, but woe to the betrayer.  Better for him if he were not born.1

The sorrowing disciples eyeing one another asked, Is  it I, Lord? The one Jesus loved, resting on him and acting on Peters nod, asked Jesus, “Lord, who is it?”

Jesus answered, “It is the man to whom I will give this bread after dipping it.” So he dipped the bread and gave it to Judas Iscariot, Simons son. Judas, the betrayer replied, “Is it I, Teacher?” Jesus said, “You say.” Judas took the bread, then Satan entered him.2

Oct 24 “What you are planning, do quickly,” Jesus said. No one sitting there knew what he meant. All thought that since Judas had the purse, Jesus was telling him to go and pay for the feast or give money to the poor. After eating the bread, Judas immediately went out into the night.
