Jesus Washes His Disciples’ Feet

1Now before the feast of the passover, (Jesus knowing that his hour was come, when He should pass out of this world unto the Father, as He had loved his own, who were yet in the world, He loved them unto the end:) 2supper being prepared, (the devil having put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray Him) Jesus, 3who knew that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that He came from God, and was going to God, 4riseth from supper, and turneth aside his clothes, and took a towel and tied it about Him;

5and then pouring water into a bason, began to wash the feet of his disciples, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith He was girded. 6He cometh therefore to Simon Peter among the rest, who saith unto Him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? 7Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou dost not now understand, but thou shalt know hereafter. 8Peter saith to Him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I do not wash thee, thou hast no part with me. 9Simon Peter saith unto Him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. 10Jesus saith to him, He that hath been bathing, hath need only to wash his feet, being then clean all over: and thus ye are clean, but not all of you. 11For He knew who would betray Him; therefore He said, Ye are not all clean.

12And when He had washed their feet, and taken his clothes about Him, He sat down again, and said to them, Do ye know the intent of what I have been doing to you? 13Ye call me, Master, and Lord; and ye say well; for so I am. 14If I then your Lord and Master have washed your feet, ye also ought to wash one another's feet. 15For I have given you an example, that ye also should do as I have done to you. 16Verily, verily I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord, nor is the messenger greater than he that sent him. 17If ye know these things, happy are ye, if ye do them.

Jesus Predicts His Betrayal

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

21Jesus having said these things was troubled in spirit, and He openly testified and said, Verily, verily I tell you, that one of you will betray me. 22The disciples therefore looked on one another, doubting of whom He spake. 23Now there was one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved, sitting next Him. 24Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him to ask, who it was concerning whom He spake. 25And he, reclining on the breast of Jesus, saith unto Him, Lord, who is it? 26Jesus answered, It is he to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it: and He dipped in a sop and gave it to Judas the Iscariot the son of Simon. 27And after the sop Satan entred into him. Then Jesus saith unto him, What thou dost, do quickly. 28But none of those that sat at table knew wherefore He said this to him. 29For some of them thought, because Judas kept the purse, that Jesus said to him, Buy what things we have need of against the feast: or that he should give something to the poor. 30He therefore, when he had taken the sop, immediately went out. And it was night.

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

31And when he was gone out Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in Him: 32and if God be glorified in Him, God will glorify Him in Himself, and will soon glorify Him. 33Little children, I am to be with you but a little while longer. Ye will wish for me, and as I said to the Jews, "Whither I go ye cannot come", so I now tell you. 34A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; ---as I have loved you, that ye also love one another: for by this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, 35if ye have mutual love to each other.

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

36Simon Peter saith unto 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 unto 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 my sake? Verily verily I tell thee, The cock shall not crow till thou hast denied me thrice.
