"No," said Peter, "you shall never wash my feet."
Jesus answered, "Unless I wash you, you have no part with me."
Jesus was with the twelve in the upper room of the house in Bethany in
what we now refer call the Last Supper. After dinner, while they were still leaning on the couches around the table,
Jesus rose up, and took off his outer robe, and then tied around his waist a long towel. He poured water into a basin,
and while all the disciples were wondering, he carried the water to the feet of one of the disciples, and began to wash them,
just as though he himself were a servant.

Then he washed the feet of another
disciple, and then of still another. When he came to Simon Peter, Peter said to
him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?"

Christ Washing the Feet of His Disciples
Jesus said to him, "What I do, you cannot understand now; but you will
understand it after a time."
"Lord, thou shall never wash my feet," said Peter. "If I do not wash you," said
Jesus, "then you are none of mine." Then Peter said, "O Lord, wash not only my
feet, but my hands and my head too!"
But Jesus said to him, "No, Peter; one who has already bathed needs only to wash
his feet, and then he is clean. And you are clean, but not all of you."
For he knew that among those whose feet he was washing was one, the traitor, who
would soon give him up to his enemies. After he had washed their feet, he put on
his garments again, and leaned once more on his couch, and looked around, and
said, "Do you know what I have done to you? "You call me 'Master' and 'Lord,'
and you speak rightly, for so I am. If I, your Lord and Master, have washed your
feet, you also ought to wash each other's feet; for I have given you an example
that you should do to each other as I have done to you." By this Jesus meant
that all who follow him should help and serve each other, instead of seeking
great things for themselves.
Jesus saw that his disciples were full of
sorrow at his words, and he said, "Let not your hearts be troubled; ye believe
in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many houses; if it were not
so, I would have told you; for I am going to make ready a place for you. And
when it is ready, I will come again, and take you to myself, that where I am,
there you may be also."
Then Jesus talked with the disciples a long time, and prayed for them. And about
midnight they left the upper-room together, and came to the Mount of Olives.
