Luke 22:21-23

A Final Discourse

22:21 “But look, the hand of the one who betrays 1  me is with me on the table. 2  22:22 For the Son of Man is to go just as it has been determined, 3  but woe to that man by whom he is betrayed!” 22:23 So 4  they began to question one another as to which of them it could possibly be who would do this.

1 sn The one who betrays me. Jesus knows about Judas and what he has done.

2 sn The point of Jesus’ comment here is not to identify the specific individual per se, but to indicate that it is one who was close to him – somebody whom no one would suspect. His comment serves to heighten the treachery of Judas’ betrayal.

3 sn Jesus’ death has been determined as a part of God’s plan (Acts 2:22-24).

4 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “so” to indicate the implied result of Jesus’ comments: The disciples begin wondering who would betray him.
