|God has raised up one of David's descendants, Jesus, as Saviour|
|Psalm 88(89):2-3,21,22,25,27 ©|
After he had washed the feet of his disciples, Jesus said to them:
‘I tell you most solemnly,
no servant is greater than his master,
no messenger is greater than the man who sent him.
‘Now that you know this, happiness will be yours if you behave accordingly. I am not speaking about all of you: I know the ones I have chosen; but what scripture says must be fulfilled: Someone who shares my table rebels against me.
‘I tell you this now, before it happens,
so that when it does happen
you may believe that I am He.
I tell you most solemnly,
whoever welcomes the one I send welcomes me,
and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.’
ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν,
οὐκ ἔστιν δοῦλος μείζων τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ
οὐδὲ ἀπόστολος μείζων τοῦ πέμψαντος αὐτόν.
εἰ ταῦτα οἴδατε, μακάριοι ἐστε ἐὰν ποιῆτε αὐτά. Οὐ περὶ πάντων ὑμῶν λέγω· ἐγὼ οἶδα τίνας ἐξελεξάμην ἀλλ’ ἵνα ἡ γραφὴ πληρωθῇ ὁ τρώγων μου τὸν ἄρτον ἐπῆρεν ἐπ’ ἐμὲ τὴν πτέρναν αὐτοῦ.
ἀπ’ ἄρτι λέγω ὑμῖν πρὸ τοῦ γενέσθαι,
ἵνα πιστεύητε ὅταν γένηται
ὅτι ἐγὼ εἰμι.
ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν,
ὁ λαμβάνων ἄν τινα πέμψω ἐμὲ λαμβάνει,
ὁ δὲ ἐμὲ λαμβάνων λαμβάνει τὸν πέμψαντα με.
