Who is it? (Jn 13:25-13:25)

“Thus,

While reclining

Next to Jesus,

The beloved disciple

Asked him.

‘Lord!

Who is it?’”

ἀναπεσὼν ἐκεῖνος οὕτως ἐπὶ τὸ στῆθος τοῦ Ἰησοῦ λέγει αὐτῷ Κύριε, τίς ἐστιν;

Then John uniquely indicated that this beloved disciple (ἐκεῖνος), while reclining next to Jesus or leaning (ἀναπεσὼν) on the breast of Jesus (ἐπὶ τὸ στῆθος τοῦ Ἰησοῦ), asked Jesus (λέγει αὐτῷ), calling him Lord (Κύριε), “Who is it (τίς ἐστιν)?”  John followed through on the suggestion from Peter.  This beloved disciple was next to Jesus, so he asked him to tell him who it was that would betray Jesus.  Have you ever asked a favor from a friend?
