Even As We Speak

Posted by Ray Carter on May 14, 2004

Even As We Speak. I've heard many in the media and other people use this phrase. I've searched many areas of the web, with no results. Somewhere I heard a loose definition, but I can't remember where. The phrase was somehow attributed to the Bible. It was at the Last Supper, and Jesus spoke the phrase. It meant that "even as we speak", in other words he meant, right now, while we're talking together, one of you will deny me. That "one" of course was Judas, who did deny him, for 30 pieces of silver. Does anyone have any follow-up or explanations for the derivation of this phrase; Even As We Speak?
