Humility (#1)

John 13:1-17

In today’s reading we see Jesus washing the apostles feet.  This was just a few hours before He will be arrested and then put to death the next day.

Verse 1 says Jesus did this knowing  “His hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father”.  Why do you think it was so important that Jesus do this before He departs?

What are some of the ways the greatness, authority, and character of Jesus are described in this passage?

    His greatness is illustrated in verse 3 where He says that He came from God and is returning to God and had all power. His authority is illustrated in verse 13 where He confirms His disciples were correct in calling Him teacher. His character is illustrated in verse 15 where He sets an example of humility and service.
