13:11. For he knew who he was that would betray him; therefore he said: You are not all clean.
13:12. Then after he had washed their feet and taken his garments, being set down again, he said to them: Know you what I have done to you?
13:13. You call me Master and Lord. And you say well: for so I am.
13:14. If then I being your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another's feet.
13:15. For I have given you an example, that as I have done to you, so you do also.
13:16. Amen, amen, I say to you: The servant is not greater than his lord: neither is the apostle greater than he that sent him.
13:17. If you know these things, you shall be blessed if you do them.
13:18. I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen. But that the scripture may be fulfilled: He that eateth bread with me shall lift up his heel against me,
13:19. At present I tell you, before it come to pass: that when it shall come to pass, you may believe that I am he.
13:20. Amen, amen, I say to you, he that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me: and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
13:21. When Jesus had said these things, he was troubled in spirit; and he testified, and said: Amen, amen, I say to you, one of you shall betray me.
13:22. The disciples therefore looked one upon another, doubting of whom he spoke.
13:23. Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.
13:24. Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him and said to him: Who is it of whom he speaketh?
13:25. He therefore, leaning on the breast of Jesus, saith to him: Lord, who is it?
13:26. Jesus answered: He it is to whom I shall reach bread dipped. And when he had dipped the bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
13:27. And after the morsel, Satan entered into him. And Jesus said to him: That which thou dost, do quickly.
That which thou dost, do quickly... It is not a license, much less a command, to go about his treason: but a signification to him that Christ would not hinder or resist what he was about, do it as soon as he pleased: but was both ready and desirous to suffer for our redemption.
13:28. Now no man at the table knew to what purpose he said this unto him.
13:29. For some thought, because Judas had the purse, that Jesus had said to him: Buy those things which we have need of for the festival day: or that he should give something to the poor.
13:30. He therefore, having received the morsel, went out immediately.
And it was night.
13:31. When he therefore was gone out, Jesus said: Now is the Son of man glorified; and God is glorified in him.
13:32. If God be glorified in him, God also will glorify him in himself: and immediately will he glorify him.
13:33. Little children, yet a little while I am with you. You shall seek me. And as I said to the Jews: Whither I go you cannot come; so I say to you now.
13:34. A new commandment I give unto you: That you love one another, as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
13:35. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another.
13:36. Simon Peter saith to him: Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered: Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now: but thou shalt follow hereafter.
13:37. Peter saith to him: Why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thee.
13:38. Jesus answered him: Wilt thou lay down thy life for me? Amen, amen, I say to thee, the cock shall not crow, till thou deny me thrice.
John Chapter 14
Christ's discourse after his last supper.
14:1. Let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God: believe also in me.
14:2. In my Father's house there are many mansions. If not, I would have told you: because I go to prepare a place for you.
14:3. And if I shall go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself: that where I am, you also may be.
14:4. And whither I go you know: and the way you know.
14:5. Thomas saith to him: Lord, we know not whither thou goest. And how can we know the way?
14:6. Jesus saith to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me.
14:7. If you had known me, you would without doubt have known my Father also: and from henceforth you shall know him. And you have seen him.
14:8. Philip saith to him: Lord, shew us the Father; and it is enough for us.
14:9. Jesus saith to him: Have I been so long a time with you and have you not known me? Philip, he that seeth me seeth the Father also. How sayest thou: Shew us the Father?
14:10. Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in me?
The words that I speak to you, I speak not of myself. But the Father who abideth in me, he doth the works.
14:11. Believe you not that I am in the Father and the Father in me?
14:12. Otherwise believe for the very works' sake. Amen, amen, I say to you, he that believeth in me, the works that I do, he also shall do: and greater than these shall he do.
14:13. Because I go to the Father: and whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name, that will I do: that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14:14. If you shall ask me any thing in my name, that I will do.
14:15. If you love me, keep my commandments.
14:16. And I will ask the Father: and he shall give you another Paraclete, that he may abide with you for ever:
Paraclete... That is, a comforter: or also an advocate; inasmuch as by inspiring prayer, he prays, as it were, in us, and pleads for us. For ever... Hence it is evident that this Spirit of Truth was not only promised to the persons of the apostles, but also to their successors through all generations.
14:17. The spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, nor knoweth him. But you shall know him; because he shall abide with you and shall be in you.
