Wash his feet

"13. Ye call me Master and Lord; and ye say well; for so I am. 14. If  I then, your Lord and Master,  have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. 15. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. 16. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. 17. If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them. 18. I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me. 19. Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he. 20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me."

        Wash his feet, disciples of Jesus.


        His whose heel was lifted up against Jesus.


        Because that's what Jesus did, and that's what he instructed his disciples to do.

        You are not greater than Jesus. Neither was Judas greater than him. You should be happy.

        Be happy that you did not lift up your heel against him. 

        Woe to that man by whom the Son of man is delivered up. It had been good for him if he had never been born.

        Be happy that you were not chosen.

        Know that Jesus chose him. Know that Jesus sent him.

        Receive Judas that you might receive Jesus, and know that Judas received God

        In my own name, I offer these words.
