THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO
Jesus washes the feet of the Twelve—He identifies Judas as his betrayer—He commands them to love one another.
before the feast of the apassover
, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he bloved
them unto the end.
And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the aheart
of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son,
to betray him;
that the Father had given all bthings
into his hands, and that he was ccome
from God, and went to God;
He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to awash
the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them
with the towel wherewith he was girded.
Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I bwash
thee not, thou hast no part with me.
Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his
feet, but is aclean
every whit: and ye are bclean
, but not all.
For he knew who should abetray
him; therefore said he, Ye are not ball
So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
Ye call me aMaster
and Lord: and ye say well; for so
If I then, your
Lord and aMaster
, have bwashed
your feet; ye also ought to cwash
one another’s dfeet
For I have given you an aexample
, that ye should do as I have done to you.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
If ye know these things, ahappy
are ye if ye do them.
¶ I 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 lifted up his heel against me.
Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am ahe
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send areceiveth
me; and he that breceiveth
me receiveth him that sent me.
When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall abetray
Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.
Now there was leaning on Jesus’ bosom one of his adisciples
, whom Jesus loved.
Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.
He then lying on Jesus’ breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?
Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a asop
, when I have dipped it.
And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it
to Judas Iscariot, the son
And after the sop aSatan
entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.
Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.
For some of them
thought, because Judas had the abag
, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things
that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.
He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.
¶ Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the aSon
of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.
If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.
Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall aseek
me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye alove
one another; as I have loved you, that ye also blove
By this shall all men
know that ye are my disciples, if ye have alove
one to another.
¶ Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.
Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I afollow
thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.
Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice.
