The ultimate volunteer

One of my favorite passages on Good Friday:

Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, “I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me.”

 22His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant. 23One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him. 24Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, “Ask him which one he means.”  25Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, “Lord, who is it?”

 26Jesus answered, “It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.” Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon. 27As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him.   “What you are about to do, do quickly,” Jesus told him, 28but no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him. John 13:21-28

Note that Satan did not make a move without Jesus’ permission.
