One of the themes identified is the nature of Judas' participation in the last supper and footwashing. This chapter considers the Gospel accounts of the footwashing or last supper, the way in which these are understood to reveal the difference between Judas and the other disciples often leads them to discuss the nature and interpretation of his calling by Jesus. The limitation of Jesus' powers, in the sense that his perception and insight operated within the parameters of the rest of humanity, is an intrinsic part of such a Christology. Origen is the first major Christian writer 'to deal with the tremendous historical and theological problems of the event of the betrayal'. John Chrysostom makes an instructive contrast with Origen, and witnesses to the importance of the Christological issues raised in the preceding analysis, particularly with regard to limit. A further contrast with Origen is found in the writing of Augustine of Hippo.
