RF JOH 13:1 Jesus Washing the Disciples Feet.
Now, prior to the festival of the Passover, Jesus, knowing that His hour had come—the time for departure from this world to the Father—having loved His friends in the world, He loved them to the end.
RF JOH 13:2 And during supper—the Devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Simon of Iscariot that he should betray Him—
RF JOH 13:3 knowing that the Father had given everything into His hands, and that He had come from God, and was returning to God;
RF JOH 13:4 He arose from the table, and putting off His robes and taking a towel, wrapped it around Him.
RF JOH 13:5 Then He poured water into the basin, and began to wash the feet of the disciples, wiping them with the towel with which He was wrapped.
RF JOH 13:6 He came thus to Simon Peter, who said to Him: "Master, do You mean to wash my feet?"
RF JOH 13:7 "What I am doing you do not understand now," said Jesus, in reply to him; "but you will understand it afterwards."
RF JOH 13:8 "You shall never at any time wash my feet," said Peter. "If I do not wash you," replied Jesus, "you have no part with Me."
RF JOH 13:9 "Master, not my feet alone," said Simon Peter to Him; "but also my hands and my head."
RF JOH 13:10 "He who has bathed," Jesus replied, "only requires to have his feet washed; the rest of his body being perfectly clean. And you are clean, although not all."
RF JOH 13:11 For He knew His betrayer; therefore He said: "You are not all clean."
RF JOH 13:12 Then when He had washed their feet, and taken His robes, and reclined again, He said to them: "Do you know what I have done to you?
RF JOH 13:13 You call Me teacher and Master: and you speak correctly, because I am so.
RF JOH 13:14 If I, then, the Master and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought also to wash the feet of one another;
RF JOH 13:15 for I have given you an example, so that you should also do as I have done to you.
RF JOH 13:16 Most assuredly I tell you, a slave is not greater than his master; nor a messenger greater than his sender.
RF JOH 13:17 If you know this, you are happy if you practice it.
RF JOH 13:18 I do not refer to the whole of you. I know whom I have chosen; but it is so for the fulfillment of this Scripture:
RF JOH 13:19 I tell you this before it happens, so that when it does come, you may believe that I AM.
RF JOH 13:20 I tell you a fact: the man who receives any one whom I send, receives Me; and whoever receives Me, receives My Sender."
RF JOH 13:21 The Traitor Foretold.
Saying this, Jesus was distressed in spirit, and exclaimed: "I tell you most truly, that one of you will betray Me!"
RF JOH 13:22 The disciples looked at one another, in doubt as to whom He referred.
RF JOH 13:23 One of His disciples—one whom Jesus loved—was leaning upon the lap of Jesus.
RF JOH 13:24 Simon Peter therefore made a sign to him, saying: "Ask who it is He is speaking about."
RF JOH 13:25 Leaning back, then, upon the breast of Jesus, he asked Him, "Who is it, Master?"
RF JOH 13:26 "He is the one," replied Jesus, "for whom I shall dip this morsel, and to whom I shall give it." When, therefore, He had dipped the morsel, He handed it to Judas Simon of Iscariot.
RF JOH 13:27 And after receiving the morsel, Satan entered into him. Jesus therefore said to Him: "What you have to do, do quickly."
RF JOH 13:28 None reclining at the table understood why He had spoken to him in this way;
RF JOH 13:29 but some supposed that, as Judas was treasurer, Jesus had told him to "Buy the necessaries for the festival"; or, "Give something to the poor."
RF JOH 13:30 Having, therefore, received the morsel, he at once went out; and it was night.
RF JOH 13:31 The New Commandment.
Then when he had gone out, Jesus said: "Now the Son of Man shall be exalted; and God will be exalted through Him;
RF JOH 13:32 and God will exalt Him to Himself; and He will exalt Him immediately.
RF JOH 13:33 Little children, I am still with you for a little while. You will search for Me; and what I told the Judeans I tell even now to you, ' Where I go, you are unable to follow.'
RF JOH 13:34 I give you a new command, THAT YOU LOVE ONE ANOTHER: just as I have loved you, in the same way you ought also to love one another.
RF JOH 13:35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love to one another."
RF JOH 13:36 A warning to Simon Peter.
"Where, Master, are You going?" Simon Peter asked Him.
"Where I am going," answered Jesus, "you are not able to follow now; but you shall follow afterwards."
RF JOH 13:37 "Lord, why cannot I follow You even now?" Peter asked Him; "I will lay down my life for You."
RF JOH 13:38 "Will you lay down your life for Me?" replied Jesus. "I tell you most assuredly that the bugle2 will not sound, until you have thrice denied Me."
1. Psalm 41.9
2. The Roman bugle, called in Latin, "Gallus," i.e., "The Cock" or "The Crower." It was a Roman army bugle for signaling the relief of the Guard.


AKJV ROM 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
