“And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.”
King James Version (KJV)

JESUS knew what Judas was going to do. Judas had rejected the Way, he rejected the Truth, he rejected the Life. Judas chose to still kill destroy. Just like ? JESUS was talking to satan in Judas, Judas did not submit to JESUS CHRIST as LORD SAVIOUR. To as many as recieve HIM JESUS to them gives HE the power to become Sons of GOD.

We must bear in mind that the betrayal was already made. Judas only needed to complete his commitment. Jesus was not telling Judas to go ahead and betray him. Judas already made the arrangements. The Holman commentary communicates nonsense when it says that Jesus offered a token of love and friendship to Judas when he gave him sop in an effort to change his mind. That is silly. If Jesus attempted to change the mind of Judas then Jesus was attempting to leave one of the prophecies about himself unfulfilled or perhaps many by way of chain reaction . EVERY prophecy concerning messiah HAD to be fulfilled or it would have been proven that Jesus was a fake. Jesus had to be betrayed for 30 pieces of silver . I believe Jesus knew who Judas was before he said "Follow me ". Jesus knew Judas would betray him. My thoughts are that Jesus was expressing his love for Judas by the sop. Perhaps the bread or morsel that filled with liquid was a picture Jesus was giving to Judas and to us of how Satan was about to fill Judas. What a sad moment.
