“Thou shalt never wash my feet.” Jesus answered him, “If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.” Simon Peter saith unto him, “Master, not my feet only, but mine hands and head also.” Jesus saith unto him, “He that hath bathed, needeth to wash his feet only; and he is altogether clean: and ye are clean, but not all.” For he knew who was to deliver him up: wherefore he said, “Ye are not all clean.” So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his upper garments, and had again placed himself at table, he said unto them, “Know ye what I have done to you? Ye call me, Teacher, and Master: and ye say well: for so I am. If I then, your Master and Teacher, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that ye also may do as I have done to you. Verily verily I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his master; nor is the messenger greater than he who sent him. If" ye know these things, happy are ye when + ye do them. “I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but so the scripture is fulfilled, “He that eateth bread with me, hath lifted up his heel against me.'

unto you, He that receiveth whom I shall send, receiveth .
me; and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me.” When Jesus had said thus, he was troubled in his spirit, and testified, and said, “Verily verily I say unto you, that one of you will deliver me up.” Then the disciples looked on one another, doubting of whom he spake. Now there was placed on the bosom of Jesus one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved. Simon Peter therefore beckoneth to him, that he should ask who it might be of whom Jesus spake. He then who leaned on the breast

Ch. xiv. “Let not your heart be troubled: believe in God;
believe in me also. In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And after I shall have gone and prepared a place for yout, I will come again, and receive you to myself; that, where I am, ye also may be. And whither I go, ye know; and the way ye know.” Thomas saith unto him, “Master, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way 7° Jesus saith unto him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father but by me. If ye knew me, you would know my Father also :: and henceforth ye know him, and have seen $ him.” Philip saith unto him, “ Master, show us the Father; and it sufficeth us.” Jesus saith unto him, “Have I been so long with you, and dost thou notknow me, Philip he that hath seen me, hath seen || the Father: how then sayest thou, * Show us the Father ?” Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me [? the words which I speak unto you, I speak not from myself; and the Father, who abideth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me, that I am in the Father, and the Father in me : but if not, believe [me] for the works themselves. Verily

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is who loveth me: and he who loveth me, shall be loved by my Father; and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” Judas (not Iscariot) saith unto him, “Master, how is it that thou wilt soon manifest thyself to us, and not to the world P” Jesus answered and said unto him, “If any man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our abode with him. He who loveth me not, keepeth not my words: and yet the word which ye hear, is not mine, but the Father’s who sent me. “These things I speak unto you, while I abide with you.

Ch. xv. “I am the true vine; and my Father is the
husbandman. Every branch in me which beareth not fruit, he taketh away; and every branch which beareth fruit, he pruneth, that it may bear more fruit. Ye are now clean, through the words which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me; and I will abide in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine; so neither can ye, unless ye abide in me. I am the vine; ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, he beareth much fruit: for, severed from me, ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he shall be cast out as a severed branch, and shall wither: and men shall gather ‘I together such branches, and cast them into the fire, and they shall be burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done for you. Herein is my Fa
