SUMMARY OF JOHN 6:67-71
Jesus asked the 12 disciples if they wanted to leave, too. Peter answers by saying they have no where else to go. Jesus has the words of eternal life, and they believe he is the Son of God. Yet, Judas is the devil and will betray him.

12a) It’s almost as if there is nothing else to do, so why not follow Jesus. Yet, they are with Jesus who will lead them. They have no one else.
b) It’s as if their faith is still not 100% sure, but they have gone this far, so why not finish it. It’s challenged me to be all in with Christ no matter what others say or do.
c) All other options in this world are empty, meaningless, and frankly, unhelpful. Only Jesus holds the truth. He is our only salvation. Prayer and the Word keep me with him.
13) Jesus chose us. It’s a privilege and an honor and one that must be treated as such. Jesus gets angry when he is rejected because he wants all of us to be his. It’s sadness, too.

As Peter said, there is no one else. There is no alternative. You choose Jesus and life or you choose death. The choice is yours.
Devil here means “slanderer” or “false-accuser” in the Greek.
Some will betray Jesus, yet it cannot affect our walk. Some in church are unbelievers, too. We must be wary of them.
Judas was from Karioth, as stated in all four gospels. Iscariot means ‘a man of Karioth.’
Kerioth was a city in the southern part of Judah (Joshua 15:25), south of Hebron in the dry Negeb.
