In the People’s Bible Commentary: John, Gary P. Baumler tells his readers, "Not one was lost, except the one foretold (Psalm 41:9), who was the one doomed to destruction. Instead of becoming a child of God by faith in Jesus, that one, Judas Iscariot (13:18), remained a child of unbelief headed for damnation. Even at that moment, Judas was out doing the work of one who was damned” (CPH, p. 225, 2005).
