John 15, Jesus, the true vine, love one another, the world hates disciples.

The KJV translation uses the word abide instead of the word remain. Below is a beloved hymn, sung mostoften to the tune “Eventide”.

Psalm 35:19 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause. 20 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.

John 13, the Passover meal, Jesus washes the disciples feet, love one another, Peter’s denial predicted.

Since 1 Nisan A.D. 30 was a Friday, the tenth of Nisan was a Sunday, and this was the day the passover lamb was selected. This was the day of the triumphal entry, nowadays known as Palm Sunday.

Jesus followed the law of Moses and held the Passover meal after sunset on the 14th of Nisan, which would make it Wednesday night. The official sacrifice of the Passover lamb and the release of the scapegoat was not going to happen until afternoon of the 14th of Nisan, or about 20 hours later.
