John 13:18 Commentary - Expository Notes with Practical Observations on the New Testament

If the chusing spoken of here be understood of eternal election, a chusing to everlasting life, then it affords a strong argument to prove Christ to be God; thus; he that is the author of eternal election is God; but Christ is such; I know whom I have chosen. Consider Christ as God, so we are chosen by him: consider him as Mediator, and so we are chosen in him. If the chusing here be meant of chusing to the work of the apostleship, then our Saviour tells his disciples, that it need not seem strange to them, that he chose one to be an apostle, whom he knew would prove a traitor; for hereby that scripture prophecy, would be fulfilled: He that eateth bread with me, hath lifted up his heel against me Psa 41:9; which, though it was literally spoken of Achitophel's treachery against David, yet was it prophetically spoken of Judas's treachery against Christ; and the expression of lifting up the heel, is metaphorical, taken from a fed beast, that kicks against his master.

Learn hence, That Christ did, as his followers do, daily suffer, not only from open enemies, but from bosom and familiar friends. Lord! how many are there in the world, who by profession lift up their hand unto thee, who yet by treason and rebellion lift up their heel against thee!
