SERIES: Night That Changed Everything, The
MESSAGE: Betrayal
SPEAKER: Skip Heitzig
SCRIPTURE: John 13:18-30

One of the worst words in our language is betray. It means to deliver up. While Jesus was about to deliver from sin and its destruction, Judas was about to deliver up the Savior. If you have ever felt betrayed by someone who has delivered you up to be fired, divorced, or slandered, then this study will have special application to you.


  1. The Prediction of Betrayal (v. 18)

    1. What Jesus Knew

    2. What Jesus Did

  2. The Paradox of Betrayal (vv. 19-20)

    1. Greater Trust in their Savior

    2. Greater Trust in their Scriptures

    3. Greater Chance for their Service

  3. The Proximity of the Betrayer (vv. 21-30)

    1. John

    2. Judas

Pondering the Principles:
  1. How has Satan's grip on Judas developed? (See 6:70; 12:4-6; 13:2, 27) What did Jesus mean by "What you do, do quickly"?

  2. When you felt that you had betrayed someone, what did you do when you found out just how bad it was? What did God teach you in that situation? How did you improve that relationship?

  3. Can you think of a time when God was preparing you for something that you had no idea was coming? What did you learn?
