“While they were eating,
I say to you!
One of you
Will betray me.’”
καὶ ἐσθιόντων αὐτῶν εἶπεν Ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι εἷς ἐξ ὑμῶν παραδώσει με.
This is similar to Mark, chapter 14:18, and John, chapter 13:21, but this phrase is not found in Luke. While they were eating (καὶ ἐσθιόντων), Jesus gave a solemn declaration (εἶπεν Ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν). He said that one of his 12 leading disciples or apostles would betray him (ὅτι εἷς ἐξ ὑμῶν παραδώσει με.). This seems like a strange time to bring this up. However, Jesus was clear, he knew what was going to happen.
