John: 13

Washing the Disciples' Feet  Jn.13.1-20 (Jerusalem)

1IT WAS BEFORE the Passover festival. Jesus knew that his hour had come and he must leave this world and go to the Father. He had always loved his own who were in the world, and now he was to show the full extent of his love.

2The devil had already put it into the mind of Judas son of Simon Iscariot to betray him. During supper, 3Jesus, well aware that the Father had entrusted everything to him, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, 4rose from table, laid aside his garments, and taking a towel, tied it round him. 5Then he poured water into a basin, and began to wash his disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel.

6When it was Simon Peter's turn, Peter said to him, 'You, Lord, washing my feet?' 7Jesus replied, 'You do not understand now what I am doing, but one day you will.' 8Peter said, 'I will never let you wash my feet.' 'If I do not wash you,' Jesus replied, 'you are not in fellowship with me.' 9'Then, Lord,' said Simon Peter, 'not my feet only; wash my hands and head as well!'

10Jesus said, 'A man who has bathed needs no further washing; [Some witnesses read: needs only to wash his feet.] he is altogether clean; and you are clean, though not every one of you.' 11He added the words 'not every one of you' because he knew who was going to betray him.

12After washing their feet and taking his garments again, he sat down. 'Do you understand', he asked, 'what I have done for you? 13You call me "Master" and "Lord", and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14Then if I, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. 15I have set you an example: you are to do as I have done for you. 16In very truth I tell you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor a messenger than the one who sent him. 17If you know this, happy are you if you act upon it.

18 [ Ps.41.9. ] 'I am not speaking about all of you; I know whom I have chosen. But there is a text of Scripture to be fulfilled: "He who eats bread with me has turned against me." [Literally: has lifted his heel against me.] 19I tell you this now, before the event, that when it happens you may believe that I am what I am. 20In very truth I tell you, he who receives any messenger of mine receives me; receiving me, he receives the One who sent me.'

Jesus Foretells His Betrayal  Jn.13.21-30 (Jerusalem)[ Jn.13.21-30 → ] - Mt.26.20-25, Mk.14.17021, Lk.22.21-23

21After saying this, Jesus exclaimed in deep agitation of spirit, 'In truth, in very truth I tell you, one of you is going to betray me.' 22The disciples looked at one another in bewilderment: whom could he be speaking of? 23One of them, the disciple he loved, was reclining close beside Jesus. 24So Simon Peter nodded to him and said, 'Ask who it is he means.' 25That disciple, as he reclined, leaned back close to Jesus and asked, 'Lord, who is it?' 26Jesus replied, 'It is the man to whom I give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.' Then, after dipping it in the dish, he took it out and gave it to Judas son of Simon Iscariot. 27As soon as Judas had received it Satan entered him. Jesus said to him, 'Do quickly what you have to do.' 28No one at the table understood what he meant by this. 29Some supposed that, as Judas was in charge of the common purse, Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the festival, or to make some gift to the poor. 30Judas, then, received the bread and went out. It was night.

The New Commandment  Jn.13.31-35

31WHEN HE HAD GONE OUT Jesus said, 'Now the Son of Man is glorified, and in him God is glorified. 32If God is glorified in him, [Some witnesses omit: If God ... in him.] God will also glorify him in himself; and he will glorify him now. 33My children, for a little longer I am with you; then you will look for me, and, as I told the Jews, I tell you now, where I am going you cannot come. 34I give you a new commandment: love one another; as I have loved you, so you are to love one another. 35If there is this love among you, then all will know that you are my disciples.'

Peter's Denial Foretold  Jn.13.36-38 (Jerusalem)[ Jn.13.36-38 → ] - Mt.26.31-35, Mk.14.27-31, Lk.22.31-34

36Simon Peter said to him, 'Lord, where are you going?' Jesus replied, 'Where I am going you cannot follow me now, but one day you will.' 37Peter said, 'Lord, why cannot I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.' 38Jesus answered, 'Will you indeed lay down your life for me? I tell you in very truth, before the cock crows you will have denied me three times.
