have continued with me in my temptations; and I ap. point unto you a kingdom, even as my Father appointed unto me, that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom; and ye shall sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”
JESUS WASHING THE DISCIPLES' FEET. Now before the feast of the passover, Jesus knowing that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own that were in the world, he loved them unto the end.
And during supper, the devil having already 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 came forth from God, and goeth unto God, riseth from supper, and layeth aside his garments; and he took a towel, and girded himself. Then he poureth water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
So he cometh to Simon Peter. He 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 understand here. after.”
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 my head."
Jesus saith to him, "He that is bathed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.” For he knew him that should betray him; therefore said he, “Ye are not all clean." So when he had washed their feet, and taken hiş garments, and sat down again, he said unto them, “Know ye what I have done to you? Ye call me Teacher, and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that ye also should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, A servant is not greater than his lord; neither one that is sent greater than he that sent him. If ye know these things, blessed 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 my bread lifted up his heel against me. From henceforth I tell you before it come to pass, 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.”
THE BETRAYER POINTED OUT. When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in the spirit, and testified, and said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.”
The disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake. And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began to say unto him every one, “Is it I, Lord?”
And he answered and said, "He that dipped his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me. The Son of man goeth, even as it is written of him: but woe unto that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! Good were it for that man if he had not been born."
And Judas, who betrayed him, answered and said, “Is it I, Rabbi?”
He saith unto him, “Thou hast said.” • There was at the table reclining in Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved. Simon Peter therefore beckoneth to him, and saith unto him, “Tell us who it is of whom he speaketh.”
He leaning back, as he was, on Jesus' breast, saith unto him, “Lord, who is it?”
Jesus the ore answereth, “He it is, for whom I shall dip the sop, and give it him.”
So when he had dippea the sop, he taketh and giveth it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. And after the sop, then entered Satan into him.
Jesus therefore saith unto him, “What thou doest, do quickly."
Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him. For some thought because Judas had the bag, that Jesus said unto him, “Buy what things we have need of for the feast,” or that he should give something to the poor. He then having received the sop went out straightway: and it was night.
When therefore he was gone out, Jesus saith, “Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him; and God shall glorify him in himself, and straightway shall he glorify him.”
THE LORD'S SUPPER.
And he said unto them, “With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: for I say unto you, I shall not eat it until it be fulfilled in the Kingdom of God."
And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and gave to them, saying, “This is my body; which is given fur you; this do in remembrance of me."
And he took a cup, in like manner after supper, and gave thanks, and gave to them, saying, “Drink ye all of it; for this is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for you, for many, unto remission of sins. Take this and divide it among yourselves; for I say unto you, I shall not drink from henceforth of the fruit of the vine, until the Kingdom of God shall come.”
THE FAREWELL CONVERSATION.
“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 unto you. A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; even 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 to one another.”
Simon Peter saith unto him, “Lord, whither goest thou?"
Jesus answered, “Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow afterwards.”
And Jesus saith unto them, “All ye shall be offended: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered abroad. Howbeit, after I am raised up, I will go before you into Galilee.”
But Peter said unto him, “Although all shall be offended, yet will not I.”
And Jesus saith unto him, “Verily I say unto thee, that thou to-day, even this night, before the cock crow twice, shalt deny me thrice.”
But he spake vehemently, “If I must die with thee, I will not deny thee.” And in like manner also said they all.
And he said unto them, “When I sent you forth
without purse, and wallet, and shoes, lacked ye anything?"
And they said, “Nothing."
And he said unto them, “But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise a wallet; and he that hath none, let him sell his cloak, and buy a sword. For I say unto you, that this which is written must be fulfilled in me, 'And he was reckoned with transgressors': for that which concerneth me hath fulfillment.”
And they said, “Lord, behold, here are two swords." And he said unto tnem, “It is enough.”
“Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I come again, and will receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go, ye know the way.”
Thomas saith unto him, "Lord, we know not whither thou goest; how know we the way?"
Jesus saith unto him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye would have known my Father also: from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.”
Philip saith unto him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us."
Jesus saith unto him, "Have I been so long time with you, and dost thou not know me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; how sayest thou, 'Show us the Father?' Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I say unto you I speak not from myself: but the
