Re: Verse reading–John 13:1-17 (day five)
The introduction to Jesus washing the disciples’ feet is mind boggling. Whatever happens next will be important, memorable, and calculated. (knowing that His hour had come that He would depart out of this world to the Father, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come forth from God and was going back to God,)
Jesus was fully aware of His Authority, His Divinity, and His Future Glory. So Jesus gives us a remarkable picture of God- a loving servant. Jesus had not forgotten He was God and decided to humble himself. NO, it was because He knew He was God and determined to act as God.
