Do you know what the Greek word Jesus used here actually means? Strongs Concordance says it's a name used for Satan and it means false accuser and slanderer.
Therefore, this scripture could read, "Did I not choose you, the twelve, and one of you is a false accuser and a slanderer?"
There is a saying that "the devil is in the details." Man, how true is that!
Whenever you see slander and false accusation you know the devil is at work. That's who is really at work behind all of the lies "fake news" propagates today.
When you recognize that Jesus is called "the Truth" in John 14:6 it provides great insight into 1 John 3:8.
He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
Truth is God's business! Are you busy about our Father's business or are you entertaining and repeating false accusations, slander and lies?
The Truth Sets You Free
John 8:32 - And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Those Who Habitually Lie are Satan's Offspring & the Devil is Behind all Lies
John 8:44-47 - You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? He who is of God hears God's words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.”
Lying is Used to Bewitch
Galatians 3:1 - O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth...
Liars & the Lake of Fire
Revelation 21:8 - But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
They Hated Jesus & the will Hate all who Speak Truth
John 15:20-25 - Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates Me hates My Father also. If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father. But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’
A False Witness Speaks Lies to Sow Discord
Proverbs 6:19 - A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.
My Prayer for Truth Leads to Salvation
Psalm 25:4-5 - Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation;
On You I wait all the day.
