III. Ministry To The Disciples (13:1–17:26)

His public ministry complete, Jesus spent the hours until his arrest privately with his disciples. Questions of chronology and of the relationship of this evening to the Last Supper described by the Synoptics are too complex to raise here: for them, see the commentaries (Barrett, 48-51; Beasley-Murray 224-26; Brown, 555-58; Lindars, 441-46).
