For I have given you an example,
that you also should do just as I have done to you.
Truly, truly, I say to you,
is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.
If you know these things,
blessed are you if you do them.
John 13:15-17 In-Context
You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am.
If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet.
For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you.
Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.
If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.
I am not speaking of all of you; I know whom I have chosen. But the Scripture will be fulfilled,'He who ate my bread has lifted his heel against me.'
I am telling you this now, before it takes place, that when it does take place you may believe that I am he.
