12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’h and ‘Lord,’i and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.j 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.k 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master,l nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.m

Jesus Predicts His Betrayal

18 “I am not referring to all of you;n I know those I have chosen.o But this is to fulfill this passage of Scripture:p ‘He who shared my breadq has turneda r against me.’b s

19 “I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believet that I am who I am.u 20 Very truly I tell you, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me.”v

21 After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spiritw and testified, “Very truly I tell you, one of you is going to betray me.”x

22 His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant. 23 One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved,y was reclining next to him. 24 Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, “Ask him which one he means.”

25 Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, “Lord, who is it?”z

26 Jesus answered, “It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.” Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas,a the son of Simon Iscariot. 27 As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him.b

So Jesus told him, “What you are about to do, do quickly.” 28 But no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him. 29 Since Judas had charge of the money,c some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the festival,d or to give something to the poor.e 30 As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.f

Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial

13:37,38pp—Mt 26:33–35; Mk 14:29–31; Lk 22:33,34

31 When he was gone, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Mang is glorifiedh and God is glorified in him.i 32 If God is glorified in him,c God will glorify the Son in himself,j and will glorify him at once.

33 “My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.k

34 “A new commandl I give you: Love one another.m As I have loved you, so you must love one another.n 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”o

36 Simon Peter asked him, “Lord, where are you going?”p

Jesus replied, “Where I am going, you cannot follow now,q but you will follow later.”r

37 Peter asked, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.”

38 Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!s
