John 13:25 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "He then lying on Jesus' breast," (anapeson ekeinos houtos epi to stethos tou lesous) "Then that one falling or leaning back upon Jesus' breast," nearest to Him, as stated, Joh 13:23, the one writing this narrative, later clarified, Joh 21:20; Joh 21:24.

2) ''Saith unto him, Lord," (legei auto kurie) "Says directly and intimately to him, Lord," inquiring in all honesty and disturbed concern.

3) "Who is it?" (tis estin) "Who is it," or who is the one? Out with it, or just tell me, let me pass the word, or tell me confidentially, for the time being. Our Lord often held back certain information from His own disciples, when He knew they were not able emotionally to hear them, and once told them so, plainly. This was one of those occasions, Joh 16:12.
