Oct 21 11.17 It was just before the Passover feast, Jesus knew that the time had arrived for him to leave this world and return to his Father. Having loved his own in the world, he loved them to the end. The devil had already suggested to Judas Iscariot that this was the night to betray Jesus. During supper, Jesus knowing that the Father had put everything under his power, and that he had come from and was returning to God. He rose, removed his garments and wrapped a towel around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin, washed the disciples feet and dried them with the towel. He came to Peter, who said, “Lord, will you wash my feet?”

Jesus answered, “You dont yet realize what Im doing, but you will later.” Peter said, “No, youll never wash my feet!”

Jesus replied, “Unless I do, you are not part of me.” Peter answered, “Lord, wash also my hands and head.”
