This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Mar 14:23. Καὶ ἔπιον ἐξ αὐτοῦ πάντες, and they all drank of it) This clause interposed between the words of the Lord is an argument, that the words, This is My body, this is My blood, were said, during the time whilst they were eating, and whilst they were drinking. Whence the evangelists either prefix or else subjoin those words; comp. note, Mat 3:7. All drank, even Judas; for who is there that will say that Judas might have stolen away from the company in the midst of the supper? [Comp. Mar 14:17-18; Mar 14:22] [Nay, even in Mar 14:31, we may suppose that, under the word all, Judas is even still included. It is not unlikely that he crossed the brook Kedron along with the Saviour and the disciples, and after that acted as conductor to the armed band which was waiting for Him in the neighbourhood.-Harm. p. 528.]
