Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentJohn 13:27
- Then entered Satan into him (tote eishlten eiv ekeinon o Satanav).
- The only time the word Satan occurs in the Gospel. As he had done before (13:2; Luke 22:3) until Christ considered him a devil ( 6:70). This is the natural outcome of one who plays with the devil.
- That thou doest, do quickly (Ho poieiv poihson taxeion).
- Aorist active imperative of poiew. "Do more quickly what thou art doing." Taxeion is comparative of taxewv (John 11:31) and in N.T. only here, 20:4; Hebrews 13:19,23. See the eagerness of Jesus for the passion in Luke 12:50.
