John 11

  The Death of Lazarus 11  A man named Lazarus, who lived in Bethany, became sick. Bethany was the town where Mary and her sister Martha lived.  ( 2  This Mary was the one who poured the perfume on the Lord's feet and wiped them with her hair; it was her brother Lazarus who was sick.)  3  The sisters sent Jesus a message: “Lord, your dear friend is sick.” 4  When Jesus heard it, he said, “The final result of this sickness will not be the death of Lazarus; this has happened in order to bring glory to God, and it will be the means by which the Son of God will receive glory.” 5  Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.  6  Yet when he received the news that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was for two more days.  7  Then he said to the disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.” 8  “Teacher,” the disciples answered, “just a short time ago the people there wanted to stone you; and are you planning to go back?” 9  Jesus said, “A day has twelve hours, doesn't it? So those who wal

The Word of Life 1  In the beginning the Word already existed; the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  2  From the very beginning the Word was with God.  3  Through him God made all things; not one thing in all creation was made without him.  4  The Word was the source of life,  and this life brought light to people.  5  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out. 6  God sent his messenger, a man named John,  7  who came to tell people about the light, so that all should hear the message and believe.  8  He himself was not the light; he came to tell about the light.  9  This was the real light—the light that comes into the world and shines on all people. 10  The Word was in the world, and though God made the world through him, yet the world did not recognize him.  11  He came to his own country, but his own people did not receive him.  12  Some, however, did receive him and believed in him; so he gave them the right to become God's children.  13 

John 13

  Jesus Washes His Disciples' Feet 13  It was now the day before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. He had always loved those in the world who were his own, and he loved them to the very end. 2  Jesus and his disciples were at supper. The Devil had already put into the heart of Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, the thought of betraying Jesus.   3  Jesus knew that the Father had given him complete power; he knew that he had come from God and was going to God.  4  So he rose from the table, took off his outer garment, and tied a towel around his waist.  5  Then he poured some water into a washbasin and began to wash the disciples' feet and dry them with the towel around his waist.  6  He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Are you going to wash my feet, Lord?” 7  Jesus answered him, “You do not understand now what I am doing, but you will understand later.” 8  Peter declared, “Never at any time will you wa
