One of you will betray me
Holy Wednesday. Maybe Judas does not realize what he is doing. Maybe he does not call it betrayal. Maybe he came up with some interpretation of his actions. So, that there’s no doubt, Jesus says: One of you will betray me. Jesus names betrayal by its name – betrayal. Perhaps Judas will restrain himself, perhaps he will reconsider.
And it comes to confrontation. Judas asks: You don't mean me, do you, Rabbi? Jesus answers him: Yes, it is you. But even that does not stop Judas.
