John 13:21 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "When Jesus had thus said," (tauta eipon lesous) "When Jesus had spoken these things,'' at length, in the atmosphere of Simon the Leper's home, with Martha, Mary, and Lazarus present, where He had been anointed by Mary, had Himself washed the disciples' feet, then further instructed His disciples regarding humility, service to one another, and warned of His soon betrayal by Judas, one of His own apostles, who was treacherous.

2) "He was troubled in spirit," (etarachthe to pneumati) "He was troubled in the spirit," agitated, excited, stirred, distressed, or shook up in His emotional being, Heb 4:15-16. Two things troubled Him: 1) His disciples had quarreled over who would be greatest when He was gone, Mat 20:20-28; Mat 20:2) Judas the traitor waited like a coiled snake to strike.

3) "And testified, and said," (kai emarturesen kai eipen) "And he witnessed and said," solemnly declared.

4) "Verily, verily, I say unto you," (Amen, amen, I tell you all) because I desire you to be prepared for the disappointment.

5) "That one of you shall betray me," (hoti heis eks humon paradosei) "That one of you (disciples) will betray me," give my up to be put to death, as prophesied by David, Psa 41:9. He dared not yet name Judas, else the others, led by Peter may have killed him.
