Jesus washes the Disciples Feet!

John 13:16-17.. 16 Truly, truly, I say to you, a slave is not greater than his master, nor is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him. 17 If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them.

 Jesus told the Disciples of His approaching death. Then they observed the Passover  meal that the Jews had been celebrating every year since 1446 BC when they sacrificed the Passover lamb that preceded their deliverance from Egypt. B The Lamb of God, Jesus would soon be sacrificed.

After they had eaten Jesus got up and washed the feet of each of the 12 Disciples. The Disciples did not understand what Jesus was doing so He explained because He knew the Disciples had been fussing between themselves as to who was greatest. By His actions He said the servant or slave is not greater than His Master and If I am your Master and Lord then you will be blessed if you serve others.

Jesus also said “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” B Therefore because we love Jesus we are to keep all His commandments C including serving others. Love for Jesus and His love are also linked with keeping His commandments in 4 more verses in chapters 14 &15. D
