Outside of any context with of The Word of His Testimony removed

1 On the Chagigah (rehearsal dinner), the evening before the Feast of the Passover began, Yahusha knew his time had come to pay the dowry and redeem his Bride from bondage to death (Ephesians 2:14-18), ascend to The Father, receive the Glory promised before the foundation of the world as King, and break the seals over to read The Heavenly Scroll (Daniel 7 and Revelation 5). Yahusha was to demonstrate his love (John 10:15) for his Bride, held captive in this world to death, even to the point of willingly laying down his own life to show us The Way to perfection and Righteousness and prove it works and Yahuah will ‘forgive our iniquity and remember our sin no more’ and fulfill His Promise to raise us from the dead (John 15:13 and Moznayim/LIBRA).

1 It 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.

2 As the Chagigah meal had ended, The Dragon had put it into the mind of Yahudah/Judas the Assassin, son of Simon, to betray Yahusha;

The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus.

3 Yahusha knowing that The Father had given all things into his hands (LEO) as he had come to do Yahuah’s Will written down in The Heavenly Scroll, and that he was going stand before Yahuah to receive his Kingdom (Ari / LEO, Daniel 7);

Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God;

4 got up from the Chagigah meal and took off his clothing to Mikveh himself. After he had walked The Way by Living Water and purified his body (to present himself to his Father), he took a towel, dried himself off, and tied it around his waist.

so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist.

5 Yahusha then poured Living Water into a basin, then began to Mikveh the Disciples' feet (to illustrate they are to walk The Way and follow his example 1 Yahchanan/1 John 2:6, 1 Kephah/1 Peter 2:21, Yahchanan/John 13:15) and wipe them with the towel that he had tied around 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.

6 Yahusha then came to Simon Peter, but Peter said to him; Rabbi, why do you wash my feet?

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

7 Yahusha answered and said to him: The example I am setting for you to walk, is not meant for you to understand now, but after I walk this path (The Way) it (Mikveh, Circumcision and Offering) will be revealed to you (by the Spirit on Shav’uot).

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

8 Peter said to him; No, I am not worthy for you to wash my feet! Yahusha answered him: If I do not Mikveh you with Living Water, you have no part with me in The Coming Kingdom.

“No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”

9 Simon Peter said to Yahusha; Rabbi, then wash my hands and my head along with my feet as well!

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

10 Yahusha said to him: those who have already dipped themselves in the Mikveh pools for Passover to cleanse and purify their bodies with Living Water do not need to be totally immersed again, just your feet as you have been traveling with sandals on and your feet are all that is dirty. However, not all of you are clean.

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 Yahusha had said, not all of them are clean, because he knew Yahudah/Judas would betray him.

11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.

12 After he had washed their feet with Living Water (to illustrate they were to walk as he walked through The Narrow Gate of Passover), he put his clothes back on, and sat down. Then Yahusha said to them: Do you understand what I have done for you?

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 rightfully call me Rabbi and leader because that is what I am to you who follow me.

13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am.

14 Since I then, your leader and Rabbi, have washed your feet, you are also bound in obligation to wash one another's feet (teach others after you how to walk The Way of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering so they then can make Disciples and teach others also 2 Timothy 2).

14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.

15 For I (the Shepherd) am giving you an example, I am showing you The Way through The Narrow Gate (AQUARIUS, Psalm 32:8, Isaiah 44:3, John 14:4), and you (my Sheep) are to follow my example every Passover and walk as I have walked (1 John  2:6, 1 Kephah/1 Peter 2:21).

15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.

16 Very honestly, I tell you: The servant is not greater than his Master; nor is the one sent to fulfill The Will of Yahuah greater than the author of The Heavenly Scroll Who sent him to fulfill it.

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 It will be your great joy to walk The Way when you are given understanding of these things (when Yahusha pours out The Spirit on Shav’uot. We see the Disciples then went out and began teaching others The Way Acts 2:38 as Yahusha had prophesied).

17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

18 I am not talking about everyone here. I know whom I have Chosen; but that the Scriptures must be fulfilled, He who eats my bread has lifted up his heel against me (Psalm 41:9).

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 against me.’

19 Now I am telling you beforehand that I will be betrayed, so that when it occurs, you may believe that I am the one David spoke about.

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 I assure you when I say; he who receives whomever I send receives me; and he who receives me receives Him Who sent me (The Kingdom is grown through mentors/teachers and discipleship as we learn from those who came before us, honor them, and ensure their needs are met as we ‘pay it forward’ 1 Timothy 5, 2 Timothy 2:2).

20 Very truly I tell you, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me.”

21 When Yahusha had said these things, he became very upset and declared, I assure you, one of you will betray 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 When the Disciples heard him say this, they were confused and wondered who he was speaking about.

22 His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant.

23 Now Yahusha’s beloved (g25. Agapaó / Love - ‘take pleasure in, long for, was faithful to’) wife Miriam was lying in his lap (a show of loving affection reserved for husband and wife in public).

23 One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.

24 Simon Peter therefore motioned to HER (g846. Autos‘her’; speaking of Miriam Magdalene the only one to never denied or betray him, anointed him with fine oil before his death, prepared his body for burial, risked being arrested at the feet of his execution state, wept at his tomb, was the first one he came to after Resurrection, and is mentioned by name more than any other Disciple) to ask who it was of whom he spoke (because she had her beloved’s ear more than any other as wives should).

24 Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, “Ask him which one he means.”

25 Then, leaning back on Yahusha’s chest, she said to him, Rabbi, who is it?

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

26 Yahusha answered: It is he to whom I will give a piece of bread after I have dipped it in the dish (Yahusha answered his beloved wife privately). Then having dipped the bread, he gave it to Yahudah/Judas the Assassin, the son of Simon.

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 And after Yahudah/Judas took the piece of bread, The Dragon entered him. Then Yahusha said to him: What you are going to do, do quickly!

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 Now no man at the table knew what Yahusha meant when he said this to Yahudah/Judas;

28 But no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him.

29 For some thought, since Yahudah/Judas had the moneybag, that Yahusha had said to him: Buy those things that we have need of for the feast; or that he should give something to the poor.

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 Then he, having accepted the piece of bread, immediately went out while it was night.

30 As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.

31 After Yahudah/Judas had left, Yahusha said: Now The Son of Man (ORION) is Glorified in The Heavenly Scroll, and Yahuah is Glorified in him who fulfills His Will on Earth as it is written in the stars (Psalm 19 – ‘the stars tell of the Glory of Yahuah and declare the Works of His Hands/Plan of Salvation Enoch 35:3, Hebrews 10:7, Matthew 6:10).

31 When he was gone, Jesus said, “Now The Son of Man is glorified and God is glorified in him.

32 If Yahuah is Glorified in him (He loves) who fulfills The Word of His Testimony (The Heavenly Scroll Isaiah 48:11-15) in the flesh (John 1:1-4), Yahuah will also Glorify him through the power of the Resurrection (Romans 1:2-4) with the Glory proclaimed in the stars before the foundation of the world (John 17:4-6) immediately as promised (LOGOS/DABAR – ‘Spoken Promise’ in the beginning Genesis 1:1).

32 If God is glorified in him, God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once.

33 Little children of the Father, I am only with you a little while longer. You will seek me, but as I said to the Yahudaim, so I say to you: Where I go (to ascend to stand before Yahuah to receive His “Glory” as King and a Kingdom Daniel 7 and break the seals over and read The Heavenly Scroll Revelation 5), you cannot come (at this time, we follow him in the First Resurrection).

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 I give a New Commandment to you, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you also love one another.

34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

35 By this will all know that you are my Disciples: By the love you have for one another.

35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

36 Simon Peter said to him; Rabbi, where are you going? Yahusha answered him: Where I go, you cannot follow me now, but you will follow me afterwards.

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 said to him; Rabbi, why cannot I follow you now? I will lay down my life for your sake.

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

38 Yahusha answered him: Will you lay down your life for my sake? Very honestly, I say to you, the rooster shall not crow till you have denied me three times.

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!
