John 13

John 13

Now before the festival of the Passover, Jesus knew that his hour
had come to depart from this world and go to the Father. Having
loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.
2The devil had already put it into the heart of Judas son of Simon Iscariot
to betray him. And during supper 3

Jesus, knowing that the Father had
given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was
going to God, 4

got up from the table, took off his outer robe, and tied a
towel around himself. 5Then he poured water into a basin and began to
wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was tied
around him. 6He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you
going to wash my feet?” 7

Jesus answered, “You do not know now what I
am doing, but later you will understand.” 8Peter said to him, “You will
never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no
share with me.” 9Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not my feet only but
also my hands and my head!” 10Jesus said to him, “One who has bathed
does not need to wash, except for the feet, but is entirely clean. And you
are clean, though not all of you.” 11For he knew who was to betray him;
for this reason he said, “Not all of you are clean.” 12After he had washed
their feet, had put on his robe, and had returned to the table, he said to


them, “Do you know what I have done to you? 13You call me Teacher
and Lord—and you are right, for that is what I am. 14So if I, your Lord
and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one
another’s feet. 15For I have set you an example, that you also should do
as I have done to you. 16Very truly, I tell you, servants are not greater
than their master, nor are messengers greater than the one who sent them.
17If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them.”
Reader: These are written so that you may come to believe that Jesus is
the Messiah, the Son of God,
All: and that through believing, we may have life in his name.
