John: The Omnipotent Foot-Washer

John 13:1-20

John 13 starts the second “book” in the gospel of John – what some have called the “book of glory.” This section will culminate in Jesus being crucified and then being gloriously resurrected, but it starts on quite a different note. In John 13:1-20, we’ll see Jesus humbling himself by taking a basin of water and washing His disciples’ feet. It’s hard to think of a cultural equivalent in today’s world, but this act of our Lord stooping down to wash filthy feet was intended to both a) be a picture of the spiritual cleansing He provides, and b) to set an example for His disciples to follow.
