John 13:1–7


13 Before the Passover Festival, Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart from this world to the Father.aw Having loved his own who were in the world,ax he loved them to the end.

Now when it was time for supper, the devilay had already put it into the heart of Judas,az Simon Iscariot’s son,H to betrayba him. Jesus knew that the Father had given everything into his hands,bb that he had come from God,bc and that he was going back to God.bd So he got up from supper, laid aside his outer clothing,be took a towel, and tied it around himself.bf Next, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet and to dry them with the towel tied around him.

He came to Simon Peter,bg who asked him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”

Jesus answered him, What I’m doing you don’t realize now, but afterward you will understand.”a
