Theme: Waiting on God
13:1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, Jesus knowing that His hour had come that He would depart out of this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.
13:2 During supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray Him,
13:3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come forth from God and was going back to God,
13:4 got up from supper, and laid aside His garments; and taking a towel, He girded Himself.
13:5 Then He poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.
13:6 So He came to Simon Peter. He said to Him, “Lord, do You wash my feet?”
13:7 Jesus answered and said to him, “What I do you do not realize now, but you will understand hereafter.”
