|John 13 (NKJV™)|
|18||"I do not speak concerning all of you. I know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, 'He who eats bread with Me has lifted up his heel against Me.'|
|19||"Now I tell you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe that I am He.|
|20||"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who receives whomever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me."|
|21||When Jesus had said these things, He was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray Me."|
|22||Then the disciples looked at one another, perplexed about whom He spoke.|
|23||Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved.|
|24||Simon Peter therefore motioned to him to ask who it was of whom He spoke.|
|25||Then, leaning back on Jesus' breast, he said to Him, "Lord, who is it?"|
|26||Jesus answered, "It is he to whom I shall give a piece of bread when I have dipped it." And having dipped the bread, He gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.|
|27||Now after the piece of bread, Satan entered him. Then Jesus said to him, "What you do, do quickly."|
|28||But no one at the table knew for what reason He said this to him.|
|29||For some thought, because Judas had the money box, that Jesus had said to him, "Buy those things we need for the feast," or that he should give something to the poor.|
|30||Having received the piece of bread, he then went out immediately. And it was night.|

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.
The Upper Room Discourse was Jesus' final message to His closest followers before He went to the cross. After washing their feet and giving them the example of how to love and serve one another, He taught what it really means to be His disciples. Pastor Skip Heitzig teaches how we can learn to face situations similar to those encountered by Jesus' disciples.
