disciples, whom Jesus loved. Simon Peter, therefore, beckoned to him that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake. He then lying on Jesus's breast saith unto him, "Lord, who is it?"

Evangelist that mentions the question put by Judas. It is not improbable it was put privately, and that Matthew alone, in addition to Judas, heard the question and the answer.

h Judas had previously made his bargain with the chief priests. This is noticed by each of the other Evangelists (Matt. xxvi. 14, 15. Mark xiv. 10, 11.
