John 13 - Lighthouse Bible 2006

Jesus Washes His Disciples’ Feet

1. Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come that he should depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them to the end.

2. And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him;

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. He rose from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

5. After that he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded.

6. Then he came to Simon Peter: and Peter said to him, Lord, do you wash my feet?

7. Jesus answered and said to him, What I do you know not now; but you shall know afterwards.

8. Peter said to him, You shall never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I do not wash you, you have no part with me.

9. Simon Peter said to him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

10. Jesus said to him, He that is washed needs not except to wash his feet, but is entirely clean: and you are clean, but not all.

11. For he knew who would betray him; therefore said he, You are not all clean.

12. So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and had sat down again, he said to them, Do you know what I have done to you?

13. You call me Master and Lord: and you speak rightly; for so I am.

14. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another’s feet.

15. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.

16. Truly, truly, I say to you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither is he that is sent greater than he that sent him.

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

Jesus Predicts His Betrayal

18. I do not speak of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.

19. Now I tell you before it happens, that, when it has come to pass, you may believe that I am he.

20. Truly, truly, I say to you, He who receives whomever I send receives me; and he who receives me receives him that sent me.

21. When Jesus had thus spoken, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Truly, truly, I say to you, that one of you shall betray me.

22. Then the disciples looked at one another, doubting of whom he spoke.

23. Now there was leaning on Jesus’ bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.

24. Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it would be of whom he spoke.

25. He then lying on Jesus’ breast said to him, Lord, who is it?

26. Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a morsel, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the morsel, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

27. And after the morsel Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus to him, What you are doing, do quickly.

28. Now no one at the table knew for what reason he spoke this to him.

29. For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said to him, Buy those things that we have need of for the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.

30. He then having received the morsel went immediately out: and it was night.

Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial

31. Therefore, when he had gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.

32. If God is glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall at once glorify him.

33. Little children, yet a little while I am with you. You shall seek me: and as I said to the Jews, Where I go, you cannot come; so now I say to you.

34. A new commandment I give to you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

35. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love to one another.

36. Simon Peter said to him, Lord, where are you going? Jesus answered him, Where I go, you cannot follow me now; but you shall follow me afterwards.

37. Peter said to him, Lord, why cannot I follow you now? I will lay down my life for your sake.

38. Jesus answered him, Will you lay down your life for my sake? Truly, truly, I say to you, The cock shall not crow, till you have denied me three times.
