John 13

Jesus Washes His Disciples’ Feet

1It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.

The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 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.

He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”

Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”

“No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”

Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”

“Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!”

10 Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.” 11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.

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. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

Jesus Predicts His Betrayal

18 “I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. But this is to fulfill this passage of Scripture: ‘He who shared my bread has turned[a] against me.’[b]

19 “I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am who I am. 20 Very truly I tell you, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me.”

21 After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, “Very truly I tell you, one of you is going to betray me.”

22 His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant. 23 One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him. 24 Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, “Ask him which one he means.”

25 Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, “Lord, who is it?”

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, the son of Simon Iscariot. 27 As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him.

So Jesus told him, “What you are about to do, do quickly.” 28 But no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him. 29 Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the festival, or to give something to the poor. 30 As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.

Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial

31 When he was gone, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified and God is glorified in him. 32 If God is glorified in him,[c] God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once.

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.

34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

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.”

37 Peter asked, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.”

38 Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!

Evanđelje po Ivanu 13

Isus pere noge učenicima

1Večer uoči Pashe, znajući da je došao trenutak da ode sa zemlje svojemu Ocu i voleći svoje koji su na svijetu, Isus je iskazao učenicima ljubav do vrhunca.[a]

Za vrijeme večere đavao je već dao mig Judi Iškariotskomu, Šimunovu sinu, da je to noć u kojoj će izdati Isusa.

A Isus, svjestan da mu je Otac predao sve u ruke, da je od Boga došao i da mu se vraća,

ustane od stola, skine gornju odjeću, opaše se ručnikom,

nalije vode te počne učenicima prati noge i brisati ih ručnikom kojim se opasao.

Kad je došao do Šimuna Petra, on mu reče: 'Učitelju, nećeš valjda ti meni prati noge!'

Isus mu odgovori: 'Sada još ne razumiješ zašto to radim, ali jednog ćeš dana shvatiti.'

'Ne,' prosvjedovao je Petar, 'nikad ti nećeš meni prati noge!''Ali ako te ne operem, ne možeš biti jedan od mojih

Šimun Petar nato poviče: 'Gospodine, operi mi onda i ruke i glavu, a ne samo noge!'

10 Isus odgovori: 'Tko je sav okupan, ne treba mu prati drugo osim nogu da bude posve čist. Sada ste čisti, ali ipak ne svi.'

11 Isus je, naime, znao tko će ga izdati. Zato je i rekao: 'Niste svi čisti.'

12 Kad im opere noge, ponovno se obuče, sjedne i upita: 'Razumijete li što sam vam učinio?

13 Vi me zovete "Učiteljem' i "Gospodinom'. Imate pravo! To i jesam.

14 I zato, ako sam ja, Gospodin i Učitelj, vama oprao noge, trebate i vi prati noge jedni drugima.

15 Dao sam vam primjer, činite kao što sam i ja učinio.

16 Zaista vam kažem, nije rob veći od svojega gospodara niti je poslanik veći od onoga koji ga šalje.

17 To znate, a blago vama budete li tako i činili!'

Isus pretkazuje da će biti izdan

18 'Ne govorim o svima vama, iako dobro poznajem vas koje sam odabrao. Sveto pismo kaže: "Onaj Koji je sa mnom blagovao, podiže se na me.'[b] To će se uskoro obistiniti.

19 Velim vam ovo već sada, prije nego što se dogodi, da kad se dogodi, vjerujete da Ja jesam.

20 Zaista vam kažem, tko lijepo primi onoga koga ja šaljem, prima mene. A primi li tko mene, znači da je primio Oca koji me je poslao.'

21 Rekavši to, duboko potresen u duhu, Isus im otvoreno reče: 'Zaista vam kažem, jedan će me od vas izdati!'

22 Učenici pogledaju jedan drugoga pitajući se na koga bi se to moglo odnositi.

23 Jedan od Isusovih učenika, onaj kojega je Isus najviše volio,[c] sjedio je za stolom odmah uz Isusa.

24 Šimun Petar mu dade znak da upita Učitelja tko bi mogao učiniti takvo strašno djelo.

25 On se nagne prema Isusu[d] i upita ga: 'Tko je taj, Gospodine?'

26 Isus odgovori: 'Kojemu d

27 Čim Juda pojede kruh, u njega uđe Sotona. Tada mu Isus reče: 'Brzo čini to što kaniš učiniti!'

28 Nitko od nazočnih za stolom nije razumio zašto je Isus to rekao.

29 Kako im je Juda bio blagajnik, neki pomisle da ga Isus šalje kupiti hrane za blagdane ili podijeliti novac siromašnima.

30 Čim je uzeo kruh, Juda iziđe u noć.

Isus pretkazuje da će ga se Petar odreći

31 Čim je Juda izišao, Isus reče: 'Sada je vrijeme da ja, Sin Čovječji, uđem u svoju slavu, a Bog će biti proslavljen svime što će se meni dogoditi.

32 Bog će me proslaviti u sebi, i to odmah.[e]

33 Draga moja djeco, kako su kratki ovi trenuci prije nego što ću morati otići i ostaviti vas! A onda, budete li me i tražili, nećete moći doći k meni, kao što sam rekao i židovima.

34 Dajem vam novu zapovijed: da volite jedni druge. Volite se međusobno onako kako sam ja volio vas.

35 Budete li imali ljubavi jedni prema drugima, po tomu će svi znati da ste moji učenici.'

36 'Kamo ideš, učitelju?' upita ga Šimun Petar.Isus mu odgovori: 'Sada ne možeš poći sa mnom, ali poslije ćeš me slijediti.'

37 Petar upita: 'Zašto sada ne mogu s tobom? Ja sam za tebe spreman i umrijeti!'

38 Isus mu odgovori: 'Umrijeti za mene? Zaista ti kažem, prije nego što pijetao sutra ujutro kukurikne, triput ćeš zanijekati da me uopće poznaješ.'
