You know the passage where the disciples are all astonished when the Lord announces that one of their very number will betray him and send him to His death? And they ask "Is it I, Lord?.... And Jesus tells them point blank, it's thye guy who will next dip his bread in the gravy (or something like that.
My question is, why does the next verse begin, "And the 11 remaining disciples buried Judas thhe next day, and then elected a new treasurer."?
John 13:18-30 (King James Version)
18I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.
19Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.
20Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
21When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
22Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.
23Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.
24Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.
25He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?
26Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
27And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.
28Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.
29For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.
30He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.
Is this the passage in question? I assume so, but its hard because you wouldnt clarify when asked. Assuming it is, I see no where that Judas was buried and a treasurer elected?! I think you are combining scripture with some other source you may of heard from in the past.
