Deception, How narrow, it can be..?

This aspect of the study came to us when we were reading the book of John, where Jesus tells Judas to go and do what he intends to do at the earliest...


Context: Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly - John 13: 27


The following is the dictionary description of the word Deception.

Deception is a trick or scheme used to get what you want.  So deception cannot be instantaneous, but a carefully and skillfully deviced action, to meet all foreseeable odds, against a person . 


Deception occurs when you deceive. 


Source is from Latin de- meaning "from" and capere, meaning "to take." ... That's a way of describing deception.


It can be so subtle or so unidentifiable, or so qualified that only qualified people can identify it and bear with it, not every one can.  At times, even the qualified can go wrong in identifying deception.


This is generally used in espionage activities, where people consider:

 "all is fair in .... war".

Believing is not an easy task, especially in unknown areas of comprehension.

In the interest of the readers, here is the entire conversation:  John 13 Ch, 21 - 30 verses.


21 When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me. 22 Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake. 23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved. 

24 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake. 25 He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?  26 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. 

27 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto himThat thou doest, do quickly. 28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him. 29 For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor. 30 He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.
