(Jn 6:68-7:6 NA28-Mounce)
68 ἀπεκρίθη αὐτῷ Σίμων Πέτρος · κύριε, πρὸς τίνα ἀπελευσόμεθα ; ῥήματα ζωῆς αἰωνίου ἔχεις, 69 καὶ ἡμεῖς πεπιστεύκαμεν καὶ ἐγνώκαμεν ὅτι σὺ εἶ ὁ ἅγιος τοῦ θεοῦ. 70 ἀπεκρίθη αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς · οὐκ ἐγὼ ὑμᾶς τοὺς δώδεκα ἐξελεξάμην ; καὶ ἐξ ὑμῶν εἷς διάβολός ἐστιν. 71 ἔλεγεν δὲ τὸν Ἰούδαν Σίμωνος Ἰσκαριώτου · οὗτος γὰρ ἔμελλεν παραδιδόναι αὐτόν, εἷς ἐκ τῶν δώδεκα. 1 Καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα περιεπάτει ὁ Ἰησοῦς ἐν τῇ Γαλιλαίᾳ · οὐ γὰρ ἤθελεν ἐν τῇ Ἰουδαίᾳ περιπατεῖν, ὅτι ἐζήτουν αὐτὸν οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι ἀποκτεῖναι. 2 Ἦν δὲ ἐγγὺς ἡ ἑορτὴ τῶν Ἰουδαίων ἡ σκηνοπηγία. 3 εἶπον οὖν πρὸς αὐτὸν οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ · μετάβηθι ἐντεῦθεν καὶ ὕπαγε εἰς τὴν Ἰουδαίαν, ἵνα καὶ οἱ μαθηταί σου θεωρήσουσιν σοῦ τὰ ἔργα ἃ ποιεῖς · 4 οὐδεὶς γάρ τι ἐν κρυπτῷ ποιεῖ καὶ ζητεῖ αὐτὸς ἐν παρρησίᾳ εἶναι. εἰ ταῦτα ποιεῖς, φανέρωσον σεαυτὸν τῷ κόσμῳ. 5 οὐδὲ γὰρ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ ἐπίστευον εἰς αὐτόν. 6 λέγει οὖν αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς · ὁ καιρὸς ὁ ἐμὸς οὔπω πάρεστιν, ὁ δὲ καιρὸς ὁ ὑμέτερος πάντοτέ ἐστιν ἕτοιμος.

  1. Hi Tony: Thanks so much for your website. Immersing oneself in the scriptures is the quickest and most effective route to sanctification! Peter’s response to Jesus in John 6:69 reminds us of the essence of true saving faith: trust accompanied by experiential cognition of the object of such trust – καὶ ἡμεῖς πεπιστεύκαμεν καὶ ἐγνώκαμεν ὅτι σὺ εἶ ὁ ἅγιος τοῦ θεοῦ. Some way wonder about Jesus’ comment on electing or choosing the 12 in John 6:70 οὐκ ἐγὼ ὑμᾶς τοὺς δώδεκα ἐξελεξάμην ; καὶ ἐξ ὑμῶν εἷς διάβολός ἐστιν. It must be recalled that Sovereign election can be distinguished in different senses: a). Corporate election of a nation, such as Israel (Deut 7:7-8). b). Vocational election of individuals to offices or to achieve a particular purpose (Cyrus in Isaiah 45; Pharoah and of course the disciples). c). Salvific election of every believer, wherein such election does not conflict nor cancel out the choice of the individual, but serves to explain why they believed (Eph 1:4-5, 11; 1 Pet 1:1). I believe that Jesus’ choice of Judas along with the other 11 corresponds to the second of these distinctions.

    Judas had disqualified himself and had already purposed in his heart a certain rejection of our Lord. The mystery of Sovereignty permitted Satan to use an already tainted Judas to be the triggered catalyst in the setting forth of the events of the crucifixion, which I see alluded by John in the next verse. In John 17:12 Jesus is referring to the Sovereign election unto salvation, wherein no one appointed by the Father to Jesus is lost (hence option “c”). The fact that Judas is mentioned as having been “lost” by Jesus can be explained in light of what we see here in John 6:70-71. Compare John 17:12 ὅτε ἤμην μετ’ αὐτῶν ἐγὼ ἐτήρουν αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ ὀνόματί σου ᾧ δέδωκάς μοι, καὶ ἐφύλαξα, καὶ οὐδεὶς ἐξ αὐτῶν ἀπώλετο εἰ μὴ ὁ υἱὸς τῆς ἀπωλείας, ἵνα ἡ γραφὴ πληρωθῇ.

    I’ll admit that perhaps these points on trying to explain Judas’ free choice to betray our Lord in light of God’s Sovereign intentions may be feeble, since such truths are beyond finding out in detail by any human mind. As one writer has noted, the face of a clock keeps perfect timing, even though the gearworks run contrary and counter to one another in their machinations. So it is with the mysteries of Sovereign and human responsibility.

    Nonetheless, Judas’ defection cannot be blamed on no one else other than Judas, even though God willed to permit it and condone such defection. All we do know is that the 11 other disciples persisted in their faith, willingly and knowlingly, due to Sovereign, keeping grace impelling them to do so.

  2. Thanks Mahlon. This insight regarding Judas reminds me of God’s sovereign will and humankind’s responsibility regarding the crucifixion of Jesus. (Acts 2:22-24 ESV) 22 “Men of Israel, hear these words:Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know— 23 this Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men. 24 God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.
