Summary: Pastor Ken Hutcherson 13:1 Just before the Passover feast, Jesus knew that his time 1 had come to depart 2 from this world to the Father.Having loved his own who were in the world, he now loved them to the very end. 3 13:2 The evening meal 4 was in progress, and the devil had already put into the heart 5 of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, that he should betray 6 Jesus. 7 13:3 Because Jesus 8 knew that the Father had handed all things over to him, 9 and that he had comefrom God and was going back to God, 13:4 he got up from the meal, removed 10 his outer clothes, 11 took a toweland tied it around himself. 12 13:5 He poured water into the washbasin and began to wash the disciples’ feet andto dry them with the towel he had wrapped around himself. 13 13:6 Then he came to Simon Peter. Peter 14 said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash 15 my feet?” 13:7 Jesusreplied, 16 “You do not understand 17 what I am doing now, but you will understand 18 after these things.” 13:8Peter said to him, “You will never wash my feet!” 19 Jesus replied, 20 “If I do not wash you, you have no share with me.” 21 13:9 Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, wash 22 not only my feet, but also my hands and my head!”13:10 Jesus replied, 23 “The one who has bathed needs only to wash his feet, 24 but is completely 25 clean. 26 Andyou disciples 27 are clean, but not every one of you.” 13:11 (For Jesus 28 knew the one who was going to betrayhim. For this reason he said, “Not every one of you is 29 clean.”) 30 13:12 So when Jesus 31 had washed their feet and put his outer clothing back on, he took his place at the table 32 again and said to them, “Do you understand 33 what I have done for you? 13:13 You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’and do so correctly, 34 for that is what I am. 35 13:14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet,you too ought to wash one another’s feet. 13:15 For I have given you an example 36 – you should do just as Ihave done for you. 13:16 I tell you the solemn truth, 37 the slave 38 is not greater than his master, nor is the one who is sent as a messenger 39 greater than the one who sent him.
