The third section of John's Gospel, which follows the prologue (1:1-18) and the account of Jesus' public ministry (1:19--12:50), is characterized by Jesus' being alone with his disciples before his betrayal and arrest. While there may have been others present, such as those who were serving the meal, the focus is on the Twelve (so also Mt 26:20 par. Mk 14:17 par. Lk 22:14). The section begins with an account of Jesus washing the disciples' feet and the prediction of Judas' betrayal (13:1-30). Then there is a lengthy section known as the farewell discourse, which consists of teachings (13:31--16:33) and a concluding prayer by Jesus (17:1-26).
