Jesus Washes His Disciples' Feet

April 18, 2021 Speaker: John Bell Series: General

Passage: John 13:1–13:27

The Big Picture: Our Lord’s footwashing points to his death on the cross: the exalted Messiah assumes the role of the despised servant to cleanse others. This is to be our example, Christian.

  1. Jesus “knows” (1-3)
  • that the hour has comefor him to leave this world and go to the Father (1)
  • that the Father had put all things under his power (3)
  • that he had come from God and was returning to God(3)

Therefore, the brewing satanic conspiracy will not have its ultimate desired effect (2)

 

  1. Jesus washes his disciples’ feet (4-17)

Jesus’ stunning, humble act of footwashing

  • displays his love (1)
  • symbolizes spiritual cleansing: both in our initial justification, and cleansing from daily sin, with confession (6–10)
  • models how we should serve each other (12–17)
