Chapter Summary

In 13:18 and 15:25 occur the only two quotations of fulfillment on the lips of Jesus in John, the former dealing with Judas the traitor and the latter with hatred for Jesus without cause. The quotation in 13:18 occurs nowhere else in the N.T., but its source, Psalms 41:10, may be alluded to in Mk 14:18. Jn, like the Synoptists, puts Jesus' prophecy about the traitor at the time of the supper, and like them he retains the element of the disciples' uncertainty about whom Jesus spoke. But unlike the Synoptists, he does not leave the figure of the betrayer in doubt. In the context of our quotation Judas as the revealed betrayer of Jesus is made the transition point between the already existing, while at the same time still anticipated, glorification of Jesus and his future further glorification and exaltation through his death and resurrection.
