John 13

MSG 1 Just before the Passover Feast, Jesus knew that the time had come to leave this world to go to the Father. Having loved his dear companions, he continued to love them right to the end. NIV 1 It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love. MSG 2 It was suppertime. The Devil by now had Judas, son of Simon the Iscariot, firmly in his grip, all set for the betrayal. NIV 2 The evening meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus. MSG 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put him in complete charge of everything, that he came from God and was on his way back to God. NIV 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; MSG 4 So he got up from the supper table, set aside his robe, and put on an apron. NIV 4 so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. MSG 5 Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the feet of the disciples, drying them with his apron. NIV 5 After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him. MSG 6 When he got to Simon Peter, Peter said, "Master, you wash my feet?" NIV 6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?" MSG 7 Jesus answered, "You don't understand now what I'm doing, but it will be clear enough to you later." NIV 7 Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand." MSG 8 Peter persisted, "You're not going to wash my feet - ever!" Jesus said, "If I don't wash you, you can't be part of what I'm doing." NIV 8 "No," said Peter, "you shall never wash my feet." Jesus answered, "Unless I wash you, you have no part with me." MSG 9 "Master!" said Peter. "Not only my feet, then. Wash my hands! Wash my head!" NIV 9 "Then, Lord," Simon Peter replied, "not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!" MSG 10 Jesus said, "If you've had a bath in the morning, you only need your feet washed now and you're clean from head to toe. My concern, you understand, is holiness, not hygiene. So now you're clean. But not every one of you." NIV 10 Jesus answered, "A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you." MSG 11 (He knew who was betraying him. That's why he said, "Not every one of you.") NIV 11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean. MSG 12 After he had finished washing their feet, he took his robe, put it back on, and went back to his place at the table. NIV 12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. "Do you understand what I have done for you?" he asked them. MSG 13 You address me as 'Teacher' and 'Master,' and rightly so. That is what I am. NIV 13 "You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and rightly so, for that is what I am. MSG 14 So if I, the Master and Teacher, washed your feet, you must now wash each other's feet. NIV 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet. MSG 15 I've laid down a pattern for you. What I've done, you do. NIV 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. MSG 16 I'm only pointing out the obvious. A servant is not ranked above his master; an employee doesn't give orders to the employer. NIV 16 I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. MSG 17 If you understand what I'm telling you, act like it - and live a blessed life. NIV 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them. MSG 18 "I'm not including all of you in this. I know precisely whom I've selected, so as not to interfere with the fulfillment of this Scripture: The one who ate bread at my table Turned on his heel against me. NIV 18 "I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. But this is to fulfill the scripture: 'He who shares my bread has lifted up his heel against me.' MSG 19 "I'm telling you all this ahead of time so that when it happens you will believe that I am who I say I am. NIV 19 "I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am He. MSG 20 Make sure you get this right: Receiving someone I send is the same as receiving me, just as receiving me is the same as receiving the One who sent me." NIV 20 I tell you the truth, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me." MSG 21 After he said these things, Jesus became visibly upset, and then he told them why. "One of you is going to betray me." NIV 21 After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, "I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me." MSG 22 The disciples looked around at one another, wondering who on earth he was talking about. NIV 22 His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant. MSG 23 One of the disciples, the one Jesus loved dearly, was reclining against him, his head on his shoulder. NIV 23 One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him. MSG 24 Peter motioned to him to ask who Jesus might be talking about. NIV 24 Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, "Ask him which one he means." MSG 25 So, being the closest, he said, "Master, who?" NIV 25 Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, "Lord, who is it?" MSG 26 Jesus said, "The one to whom I give this crust of bread after I've dipped it." Then he dipped the crust and gave it to Judas, son of Simon the Iscariot. NIV 26 Jesus answered, "It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish." Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon. MSG 27 As soon as the bread was in his hand, Satan entered him. "What you must do," said Jesus, "do. Do it and get it over with." NIV 27 As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. "What you are about to do, do quickly," Jesus told him, MSG 28 No one around the supper table knew why he said this to him. NIV 28 but no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him. MSG 29 Some thought that since Judas was their treasurer, Jesus was telling him to buy what they needed for the Feast, or that he should give something to the poor. NIV 29 Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the Feast, or to give something to the poor. MSG 30 Judas, with the piece of bread, left. It was night. NIV 30 As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night. MSG 31 When he had left, Jesus said, "Now the Son of Man is seen for who he is, and God seen for who he is in him. The moment God is seen in him, NIV 31 When he was gone, Jesus said, "Now is the Son of Man glorified and God is glorified in him. MSG 32 God's glory will be on display. In glorifying him, he himself is glorified - glory all around! NIV 32 If God is glorified in him, God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once. MSG 33 "Children, I am with you for only a short time longer. You are going to look high and low for me. But just as I told the Jews, I'm telling you: 'Where I go, you are not able to come.' NIV 33 "My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come. MSG 34 "Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. NIV 34 "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. MSG 35 This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples - when they see the love you have for each other." NIV 35 By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." MSG 36 Simon Peter asked, "Master, just where are you going?" Jesus answered, "You can't now follow me where I'm going. You will follow later." NIV 36 Simon Peter asked him, "Lord, where are you going?" Jesus replied, "Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will follow later." MSG 37 "Master," said Peter, "why can't I follow now? I'll lay down my life for you!" NIV 37 Peter asked, "Lord, why can't I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you." MSG 38 "Really? You'll lay down your life for me? The truth is that before the rooster crows, you'll deny me three times." NIV 38 Then Jesus answered, "Will you really lay down your life for me? I tell you the truth, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!
