Chapter 13

The Lord’s Supper

1 Now before the Feast of athe Passover, Jesus knowing that bHis hour had come that He would depart out of this world cto the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them 1to the end.

2 During supper, athe devil having already put into the heart of bJudas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray Him,

3 Jesus, aknowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that bHe had come forth from God and was going back to God,

4 * got up from supper, and * laid aside His garments; and taking a towel, He agirded Himself.

Jesus Washes the Disciples’ Feet

5 Then He * poured water into the basin, and began to awash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.

6 So He * came to Simon Peter. He * said to Him, “Lord, do You wash my feet?”

7 Jesus answered and said to him, “What I do you do not realize now, but you will understand ahereafter.”

8 Peter * said to Him, “Never shall You wash my feet!” Jesus answered him, aIf I do not wash you, byou have no part with Me.”

9 Simon Peter * said to Him, “Lord, then wash not only my feet, but also my hands and my head.”

10 Jesus * said to him, “He who has bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and ayou are clean, but not all of you.

11 For aHe knew the one who was betraying Him; for this reason He said, “Not all of you are clean.”

12 So when He had washed their feet, and ataken His garments and reclined at the table again, He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you?

13 “You call Me aTeacher and bLord; and 1you are right, for so I am.

14 “If I then, athe Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.

15 “For I gave you aan example that you also should do as I did to you.

16 “Truly, truly, I say to you, aa slave is not greater than his master, nor is bone who is sent greater than the one who sent him.

17 “If you know these things, you are ablessed if you do them.

18 aI do not speak of all of you. I know the ones I have bchosen; but it is cthat the Scripture may be fulfilled, ‘dHe who eats My bread has lifted up his heel against Me.’

19 “From now on aI am telling you before it comes to pass, so that when it does occur, you may believe that bI am He.

20 “Truly, truly, I say to you, ahe who receives whomever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.”

Jesus Predicts His Betrayal

21 When Jesus had said this, He abecame troubled in spirit, and testified and said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, that bone of you will 1betray Me.”

22 The disciples began looking at one another, aat a loss to know of which one He was speaking.

23 There was reclining on aJesus’ bosom one of His disciples, bwhom Jesus loved.

24 So Simon Peter * gestured to him, and * said to him, “Tell us who it is of whom He is speaking.”

25 He, aleaning back thus on Jesus’ bosom, * said to Him, “Lord, who is it?”

26 Jesus then * answered, “That is the one for whom I shall dip the morsel and give it to him.” So when He had dipped the morsel, He * took and * gave it to Judas, athe son of Simon Iscariot.

27 After the morsel, aSatan then bentered into him. Therefore Jesus * said to him, “What you do, do quickly.”

28 Now no one of those reclining at the table knew for what purpose He had said this to him.

29 For some were supposing, because Judas ahad the money box, that Jesus was saying to him, “Buy the things we have need of bfor the feast”; or else, that he should cgive something to the poor.

30 So after receiving the morsel he went out immediately; and ait was night.

31 Therefore when he had gone out, Jesus * said, “Now 1is athe Son of Man bglorified, and cGod 1is glorified in Him;

32 1if God is glorified in Him, aGod will also glorify Him in Himself, and will glorify Him immediately.

33 aLittle children, I am with you ba little while longer. cYou will seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, now I also say to you, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come.’

34 “A anew commandment I give to you, bthat you love one another, ceven as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

35 aBy this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

36 Simon Peter * said to Him, “Lord, where are You going?” Jesus answered, aWhere I go, you cannot follow Me now; but byou will follow later.”

37 Peter * said to Him, “Lord, why can I not follow You right now? aI will lay down my life for You.”

38 Jesus * answered, “Will you lay down your life for Me? Truly, truly, I say to you, aa rooster will not crow until you deny Me three times.
