Jesus Washes His Disciples’ Feet

1NOW before the feast of the passover, Jesus, knowing that his hour was come, that he should go out of this world to the Father, having loved his peculiar people that are in the world, he loved them to the end. 2And supper being served, (the devil having now injected into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, that he should betray him;) 3Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he came out from God, and was going to God; 4he rises from supper, and lays aside his garments, and taking a towel, he wound it about himself.

5Then he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples? feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was begirt. 6Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and he saith to him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? 7Jesus answered and said to him, What I am doing thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. 8Peter saith to him, Thou shalt never wash my feet: no, never. Jesus answered him, Except I wash thee, thou hast no part with me. 9Simon Peter saith to him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. 10Jesus saith to him, He that is washed hath need only to wash his feet, for he is entirely clean: and ye are clean, but not all. 11(For he knew who would betray him; therefore he said, Ye are not all clean.)

12When therefore he had washed their feet, and taken his garments, and sat down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done unto you? 13Ye call me Master, and Lord: and ye speak truly; for such I am. 14If therefore I have washed your feet, though the Lord and the Master; ye also ought to wash one another?s feet. 15For I have given you an example, that just as I have done to you, ye should do also. 16Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his master; nor the messenger greater than him that sent him. 17If ye know these things, blessed are ye if ye practise them.

Jesus Predicts His Betrayal

18I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me, hath lift up his heel against me. 19Now I tell you previously, before this comes to pass, that, when it cometh to pass, ye may believe that I am. 20Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I shall send, receiveth me; and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me.

21As Jesus was speaking these words, he was greatly agitated in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me. 22Then the disciples looked one at another, doubting of whom he spake. 23Now there was one of the disciples reclining on the bosom of Jesus, whom Jesus loved. 24Therefore Simon Peter gave him a significant look, that he should inquire of Jesus, which of them it should be of whom he spake. 25And he leaning on the breast of Jesus, said to him, Lord, which is it? 26Jesus answered, It is he to whom I shall give this morsel of bread, when I have dipped it. And dipping the morsel of bread, he gave it unto Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. 27And after the sop, then entered Satan into him. Jesus saith to him, What thou doest, do quickly. 28Now none of those who sat at table knew wherefore he had spoken to him. 29For some supposed, as Judas kept the purse, that Jesus was saying to him, Buy what we need for the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor. 30Having then received the sop, he went out immediately: now it was night.

Love One Another
(Romans 12:9–13; 1 John 3:11–24)

31When therefore he was gone, Jesus saith, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him. 32If God is glorified in him, God will also glorify him with himself, and immediately glorify him. 33My dear children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: as I said to the Jews, Whither I am going, ye cannot come; so say I now to you. 34A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; even as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial
(Matthew 26:31–35; Mark 14:27–31; Luke 22:31–38)

36Simon Peter saith to him, Lord, Whither art thou going? Jesus answered him, Whither I am going, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me hereafter. 37Peter saith to him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thee. 38Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for me? Verily, verily, I tell thee, the cock will not crow, before thou shalt deny me thrice.
