Now before the feast of the passover, 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 loved them unto the end.||
(13:2) "The devil ... put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him."|
God put the devil in Judas' heart so that he could have his son (or himself, or whatever) killed.
(13:3-5) Jesus takes off all his clothes, wraps a towel around himself, and then washes the
feet of his disciples using the same towel.
(13:3-4) "Jesus ... laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself."
(13:5) "And began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded."
And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas
Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;
Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and
that he was come from God, and went to God;
He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and
After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash 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.||
Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him,
If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.||
Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and
Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet,
but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.||
For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all
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 Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.||
If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to
wash one another's feet.||
For I have given you an example, 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, happy 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
Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may
believe that I am he.||
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send
receiveth me; and he that receiveth 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 betray me.||
Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.||
(13:23-25) Was Jesus gay?
(13:23) "There was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples,
whom Jesus loved."
Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus
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?||
(13:25) "He ... lying on Jesus' breast."
Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped
it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of
And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do
(13:27) "After the sop Satan entered into him."|
When did Satan enter Judas?
Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.
For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, 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 Son 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.||
(13:34) "Love one another."
(13:35) "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one
to another." Love has hardly been a diagnostic feature of Christians.
"Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou?"
Did Peter ask Jesus where he was going?
"The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice."
Did Jesus say before the cock crow or before the cock crows twice?
Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek 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 love one another; as I have loved you, that ye
also love one another.
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one
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
Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow 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.
- Receive whomever Jesus sends.
- He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. 13:20
