John 6:70-71. The ultimate betrayal

Then Jesus replied, “Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!” (He meant Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, who, though one of the Twelve, was later to betray him.)

From these verses we know that Jesus was omniscient; that the plan of salvation was there right from the beginning; that his betrayal was pre-planned and deliberate; that Judas was irredeemable; that the devil was sucked into the plan; that Jesus bravely faced a terrible outcome for him; that there could have been no other way; that God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that everyone who believed on him should not perish but have everlasting life.
