Commentary: Jesus washing the feet of His disciples came as a great surprise, as it is normally a task reserved for the lowliest servant. Once again, Jesus was setting an example to follow. There was much that occurred during the Passover Feast that was not understood by the disciples, which John freely admits! In the midst of Jesus’ cryptic warning, He also offered a message of hope. He will not leave them alone. His Father loves them, as reflected by His Son, Jesus Christ. We are to share this love with others, although the path will not always be easy as many will prefer to continue wallowing in sin instead of repent and change.
Focus Verses: 13:1-4 Try to imagine and understand everything Jesus was feeling at this moment. What was He feeling? Why? Why is it important to know what Jesus was feeling?
