Jesus washeth the disciples' feet:
John 13:1 Before the feaste of Easter, when Iesus knewe that hys houre was come, that he shuld depart out of this world vnto þe father. When he loued his which were in the worlde, vnto the ende he loued them. John 13:2 And when supper was ended, after that the deuyll had put in the herte of Iudas Iscarioth Simons sonne, to be traye hym. John 13:3 Iesus knowynge that the father had geuen all thinges into hys handes, and that he was come from God, and went to God: John 13:4 he rose from supper, and layde asyde his vpper garmentes: and whan he had taken a towell, he gyrded him self. John 13:5 After that, he powred water into a basyn, and beganne to wash the disciples fete, and to wype them with the towell, wherwith he was gyrded. John 13:6 Then came he to Symon Peter. And Peter sayde vnto hym: Lord, dost thou wasshe my fete? John 13:7 Iesus answered, and sayd vnto him: what I do, þu wotest not nowe, but þu shalt know herafter. John 13:8 Peter sayeth vnto him: thou shalt neuer wasshe my fete. Iesus answered hym: yf I wasshe the not, thou hast no parte with me. John 13:9 Symon Peter sayeth vnto hym: Lorde, not my fete onely, but also the handes and the head. John 13:10 Iesus sayth to hym: he that is wasshed, nedeth not, saue to wasshe his fete, but is cleane euery whyt. And ye are cleane, but not all. John 13:11 For he knewe who it was that shuld be traye hym. Therfore sayd he: ye are not all cleane: John 13:12 So after he had wasshed their fete, and receaued hys clothes, and was sett downe, he sayde vnto them agayne: wote ye what I haue done to you? John 13:13 Ye call me master and Lorde, and ye saye well, for so am I.
exhorteth them to humility and charity.
John 13:14 If I then youre lorde and master haue wasshed youre fete, ye also ought to wasshe one anothers fete. John 13:15 For I haue geuen you an ensample that ye shulde do, as I haue done to you. John 13:16 Uerely verely, I saye vnto you: þe seruaunte is not greater then his master, nether þe messenger greater then he that sent hym. John 13:17 If ye vnderstande these thinges happy are ye, yf ye do them.
He foretelleth, and discovereth to John by a token, that Judas should betray him:
John 13:18 I speake not of you all, I knowe whom I haue chosen. But that the scripture maye be fulfylled: he that eateth bread with me, hath lyfte vp hys hele against me. John 13:19 Now tell I you before it come þt when it is come to passe, ye might beleue that I am he. John 13:20 Uerely verely, I saye vnto you: He þt receaueth whomsoeuer I sende, receaueth me. And he that receaueth me, receaueth him that sent me. John 13:21 When Iesus had thus sayd, he was troubled in the sprete, and testifyed and sayd: verely verely, I saye vnto you: that one of you shall be traye me. John 13:22 Then the disciples loked one on another, dowtynge of whom he spake. John 13:23 There was one of Iesus disciples, (which leaned on hym) euen he whom Iesus loued. John 13:24 To hym beckened Symon Peter therfore, that he shulde aske, who it was of whom he spake. John 13:25 He then when he leaned on Iesus brest, sayd vnto him: Lord, who is it? John 13:26 Iesus answered: he it is to whom I geue a soppe. And he wet the brede & gaue it to Iudas Iscarioth Simons sonne. John 13:27 And after the soppe. Satan entred into him. Then sayd Iesus vnto him: that thou dost, do quyckly. John 13:28 That wist no man at the table, for what intent he spake vnto him. John 13:29 Som of them thought because. Iudas had the bagge, þt Iesus had sayd vnto him: bye those thinges that we haue nede of agaynst the feaste: or þt he shuld geue some thyng to the poore. John 13:30 Assone then as he had receaued the soppe, he went immediatly out and it was night.
commandeth them to love one another:
John 13:31 Therfore when he was gone oute. Iesus sayd: Now is the sonne of man glorifyed. And God is gloryfyed by him. John 13:32 If God be glorifyed by him, God shall also glorify hym by hym selfe: and shall strayght waye gloryfy hym. John 13:33 Lytle chyldren, yet a lytel whyle am I with you. Ye shall seke me, & as I sayd vnto the Iewes, whyther I goo, thyther can ye not come. Also to you saye I now. John 13:34 A newe commaundement geue I vnto you, that ye loue together, as I haue loued you, that euen so ye loue one another. John 13:35 By this shall all men knowe that ye are my discyples, yf ye haue loue one to another.
and forewarneth Peter of his denial.
John 13:36 Symon Peter sayd vnto hym: Lorde, whyther goest thou? Iesus answered him: whyther I go, thou canst not folowe me now, but thou shalt folowe me afterwardes. John 13:37 Peter sayd vnto him: Lorde, why cannot I folowe the now: I wyl ieoparde my lyfe for thy sake? John 13:38 Iesus answered hym: wylt thou ieoparde thy lyfe for my sake? Uerely verely, I saye vnto the: the cocke shall not crowe, tyll thou haue denyed me thryse.
