Luke 22:24-30
John 13:1-20

And on the first day of unleavened bread,
when they sacrificed the Passover lamb,
his disciples say to him, "Where do you wish us to go
to prepare so that you may eat the Passover?"

And he sends two of his disciples
and tells them, "Go into the city,
and you will meet a person carrying a jar of water;
follow him, and wherever he enters
tell the master of the house that the teacher says,
'Where is my guest room,
where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?'
And he will show you a large upper room already furnished;
and there prepare for us."

And the disciples went out and came into the city
and found it as he had told them,
and they prepared the Passover.
And evening coming he arrives with the twelve.
Mark 14:12-17

And on the first of the unleavened bread
the disciples approached Jesus saying,
"Where do you wish us to prepare
for you to eat the Passover?"

And he said, "Go into the city to someone and tell him,
'The teacher says: My time is near;
with you I will make the Passover with my disciples.'"

And the disciples did as Jesus had directed them,
and they prepared the Passover.
And evening coming he dined with the twelve disciples.
Matthew 26:17-20

And the day of unleavened bread came,
on which the Passover lamb must be sacrificed;
and he sent Peter and John saying,
"Go prepare for us the Passover, so that we may eat."

And they said to him, "Where do you wish us to prepare it?"
And he said to them, "Look, as you are entering the city

a person carrying a jar of water will meet you;
you will follow him to the house that he enters;
and you will tell the master of the house,
'The teacher says to you:
Where is the guest room
where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?'
And that one will show you a large upper room furnished;
prepare there."

And going away they found it as he had told them,
and they prepared the Passover.
And when the hour came, he dined, and the apostles with him.

And he said to them, "With longing I have desired
to eat this Passover with you before my suffering;
for I tell you that I will not eat it any more
until it is fulfilled in the sovereignty of God."
Luke 22:7-16

And also a competition occurred among them,
which of them was considered to be greater.

And he said to them,
"The kings of the nations lord it over them,
and those having authority over them are called benefactors.
But let it not be so with you,
rather let the greater among you become like the younger,
and the governing like the serving.
For who is greater, the one dining or the one serving?
Is it not the one dining?

"But I in the middle of you am like one serving.
And you are the ones remaining with me during my tests;
and I confer upon you
as my Father conferred upon me a sovereignty,
so that you may eat and drink at my table in my sovereignty,
and you will sit on thrones
judging the twelve tribes of Israel."
Luke 22:24-30

Before the Passover feast, Jesus aware that his hour had come
to pass over from this world to the Father,
having loved his own in the world, he loved them to the end.
And during dinner, as the devil had already
put into the heart of Judas Iscariot son of Simon
that he should give him over,
aware that the Father had given all things into his hands,
and that he came out from the Father and goes to the Father,
he rises from the dinner and puts aside his clothes,
and taking a towel he wrapped it around his waist;
next he poured water into a basin,
and he began to wash the feet of the disciples
and wipe them off with the towel
which was wrapped around him.

So he comes to Simon Peter;
he says to him, "Lord, do you wash my feet?"

Jesus answered and said to him, "What I am doing
you do not understand now, but you will know afterward."

Peter says to him, "You shall never wash my feet."

Jesus answered him, "Unless I wash you,
you have no part with me."

Simon Peter says to him, "Lord, not only my feet,
but also my hands and head."

Jesus says to him, "One who has bathed
has no need to wash except for the feet,
but he is completely clean;
and you are clean; but not everyone."
For he knew who was giving him over;
for this reason he said, "You are not all clean."

Therefore when he had washed their feet
and taken his clothes and sat down again,
he said to them, "Do you know what I have done for you?
You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,'
and you are right; for I am.
Therefore if I, Lord and teacher, washed your feet,
you also ought to wash each other's feet;
for I gave you an example
so that as I have done for you, you also should do.

"Amen, amen, I tell you, no servant is greater than his lord,
nor is the messenger greater than the one sending him.
If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them.
I am not talking about everyone;
I know those I have selected;
but so that the scripture may be fulfilled:

The one eating my bread
has lifted his heal against me.

I am telling you now before the occurrence,
so that you may believe when it occurs that I am he.

"Amen, amen, I tell you,
whoever accepts anyone I may send accepts me,
and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me."
John 13:1-20
