“I gave you an example.”

JOH 13:1-15

Chapters 13 and 14 : John’s take on the last Passover meal Jesus had with His disciples.

LUK 22:11-12

JOH 14:30-31

John does not record the institution of the Lord’s Supper itself.

Instead, he gives an extended discourse between Jesus and His closest disciples.

JOH 13:1-4

Notice what is in the heart of Jesus.
It’s love.

JOH 13:5

In other words, it was humble work, to serve others.

Just as Jesus humbled Himself to become a man, so now He humbles Himself to become a servant.

The very next day, He is going to humble Himself even further.

He will become obedient to His Father to the point of death, death on a cross.

He cleansed us from our sins - all of them - with His blood.

HEB 10:12-18
HEB 9:26

He washed their dirty feet. No disciple washed his own feet.

JOH 13:6-9

Peter does not understand what Jesus is doing now, but he will in the future.

JOH 13:10-15

Jesus washed their feet as an example of what they should do.

MAT 23:10-12

And how are we to serve one another? Through love!

GAL 5:13-14

Because Jesus was a servant all the way to His death, our sins have been forgiven.

Now we should forgive one another’s sins.

EPH 4:32

JOH 13:34-35
JOH 15:9-13

Love is the thing that Peter understood later on, when he wrote his letters.

1PE 1:22-23

Too often, people look to religion for the spectacular experience.

No, the greatest thing is simply to love another and be loved by others.

And, best of all, to know that we are greatly loved by God our Father.

1JO 3:1
