Messianic Prophecies: Betrayed by a Friend
Psalm 41:9 - Even my own familiar friend in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.

Betrayed by a Friend The Messiah will be Betrayed by a Familiar Friend. Psalm 41:9 Even my own familiar friend in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, has lifted up his heel against me. Matt 26:48-49 Now His betrayer had given them a sign, saying, "Whomever I kiss, He is the One; seize Him." Immediately he went up to Jesus and said, "Greetings, Rabbi!" and kissed Him.

Jesus was Betrayed by His Friend Judas Matt 26:48-49 Now His betrayer had given them a sign, saying, "Whomever I kiss, He is the One; seize Him." Immediately he went up to Jesus and said, "Greetings, Rabbi!" and kissed Him. Key Points: - Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus, his Master and Friend (cf. John 13:18; Acts 1:16). - "lifted heel against" was a metonymy for "turned against as a horse against his master". - In Hebrew it means "thrust with the heel, a kick: to give a great kick, i.e., with a good swing of the foot." (from Keil & Delitzsch Commentary on the Old Testament). - The phrase, "who ate my bread," is taken from the practice of kings admitting honored subjects to eat at their table. - This Psalm was probably written at the time of Absalomís rebellion (2 Sam 15). - Davidís familiar friend was no doubt Ahithophel, his close advisor who deserted him. (2 Sam 17:23) - It is interesting that Ahithophel was related to Bathsheba. - The verse Psalm 41:9 gives evidence that Messiah would be betrayed. - Judas saluted Jesus with a kiss of peace. (Matt 26:49). - Ahithophel and Judas had similar ends.
