John 13:19-21 The Passion Translation (TPT)

19 I am telling you this now, before it happens, so that when the prophecy comes to pass you will be convinced that I AM.[a] 20 “Listen to this timeless truth: whoever receives the messenger I send receives me, and the one who receives me receives the Father[b] who sent me.”

21 Then Jesus was moved deeply in his spirit.[c] Looking at his disciples, he announced, “I tell you the truth—one of you is about to betray me.”


  1. John 13:19 Or “I Am the One,” or “I AM Who I AM.” Jesus once again equates himself with Jehovah-God, the I Am.
  2. John 13:20 Or “the One.” By implication, this is the Father.
  3. John 13:21 As translated from the Greek. The Aramaic describes Jesus’ emotion as “feeling a profound tenderness,” or “his spirit felt a longing.” We can conclude that everything within our Lord Jesus was moved deeply by the thought of being betrayed by one of his beloved disciples.
