Great(i) 1 Before the feaste of Easter, when Iesus knewe that hys houre was come, that he shuld depart out of this world vnto the father. When he loued his which were in the worlde, vnto the ende he loued them. 2 And when supper was ended, after that the deuyll had put in the herte of Iudas Iscarioth Simons sonne, to be traye hym. 3 Iesus knowynge that the father had geuen all thinges into hys handes, and that he was come from God, and went to God: 4 he rose from supper, and layde asyde his vpper garmentes: and whan he had taken a towell, he gyrded him self. 5 After that, he powred water into a basyn, and beganne to wash the disciples fete, and to wype them with the towell, wherwith he was gyrded. 6 Then came he to Symon Peter. And Peter sayde vnto hym: Lord, dost thou wasshe my fete? 7 Iesus answered, and sayd vnto him: what I do, thou wotest not nowe, but thou shalt know herafter. 8 Peter sayeth vnto him: thou shalt neuer wasshe my fete. Iesus answered hym: yf I wasshe the not, thou hast no parte with me. 9 Symon Peter sayeth vnto hym: Lorde, not my fete onely, but also the handes and the head. 10 Iesus sayth to hym: he that is wasshed, nedeth not, saue to wasshe his fete, but is cleane euery whyt. And ye are cleane, but not all. 11 For he knewe who it was that shuld be traye hym. Therfore sayd he: ye are not all cleane: 12 So after he had wasshed their fete, and receaued hys clothes, and was sett downe, he sayde vnto them agayne: wote ye what I haue done to you? 13 Ye call me master and Lorde, and ye saye well, for so am I. 14 If I then youre lorde and master haue wasshed youre fete, ye also ought to wasshe one anothers fete. 15 For I haue geuen you an ensample that ye shulde do, as I haue done to you. 16 Uerely verely, I saye vnto you: the seruaunte is not greater then his master, nether the messenger greater then he that sent hym. 17 If ye vnderstande these thinges happy are ye, yf ye do them. 18 I speake not of you all, I knowe whom I haue chosen. But that the scripture maye be fulfylled: he that eateth bread with me, hath lyfte vp hys hele against me. 19 Now tell I you before it come that when it is come to passe, ye might beleue that I am he. 20 Uerely verely, I saye vnto you: He that receaueth whomsoeuer I sende, receaueth me. And he that receaueth me, receaueth him that sent me. 21 When Iesus had thus sayd, he was troubled in the sprete, and testifyed and sayd: verely verely, I saye vnto you: that one of you shall be traye me. 22 Then the disciples loked one on another, dowtynge of whom he spake. 23 There was one of Iesus disciples, (which leaned on hym) euen he whom Iesus loued. 24 To hym beckened Symon Peter therfore, that he shulde aske, who it was of whom he spake. 25 He then when he leaned on Iesus brest, sayd vnto him: Lord, who is it? 26 Iesus answered: he it is to whom I geue a soppe. And he wet the brede & gaue it to Iudas Iscarioth Simons sonne. 27 And after the soppe. Satan entred into him. Then sayd Iesus vnto him: that thou dost, do quyckly. 28 That wist no man at the table, for what intent he spake vnto him. 29 Som of them thought because. Iudas had the bagge, that Iesus had sayd vnto him: bye those thinges that we haue nede of agaynst the feaste: or that he shuld geue some thyng to the poore. 30 Assone then as he had receaued the soppe, he went immediatly out and it was night. 31 Therfore when he was gone oute. Iesus sayd: Now is the sonne of man glorifyed. And God is gloryfyed by him. 32 If God be glorifyed by him, God shall also glorify hym by hym selfe: and shall strayght waye gloryfy hym. 33 Lytle chyldren, yet a lytel whyle am I with you. Ye shall seke me, & as I sayd vnto the Iewes, whyther I goo, thyther can ye not come. Also to you saye I now. 34 A newe commaundement geue I vnto you, that ye loue together, as I haue loued you, that euen so ye loue one another. 35 By this shall all men knowe that ye are my discyples, yf ye haue loue one to another. 36 Symon Peter sayd vnto hym: Lorde, whyther goest thou? Iesus answered him: whyther I go, thou canst not folowe me now, but thou shalt folowe me afterwardes. 37 Peter sayd vnto him: Lorde, why cannot I folowe the now: I wyl ieoparde my lyfe for thy sake? 38 Iesus answered hym: wylt thou ieoparde thy lyfe for my sake? Uerely verely, I saye vnto the: the cocke shall not crowe, tyll thou haue denyed me thryse.
