Jesus washes the disciples feet now before the festival of the passover. Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart from this world and go to the father having loved his own, who were in the world. He loved them to the end. The devil had already put it into the heart of judas son of simon iscariot, to betray him and during supper jesus, knowing that the father had given all things into his hands and that he had come from god and was going to god got up from the Table took off his outer robe and tied a towel around himself. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples feet and to wipe them with the towel. That was tied around him. He came to simon peter, who said to him. Lord, are you going to wash my feet? Jesus answered, you do not know now what i am doing, but later you will understand peter said to him. You will never wash my feet. Jesus answered unless i wash you. You have no share with me, simon peter said to him lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. Jesus said to him: one who has bathed does not need to wash except for the feet, but is entirely clean and you are clean, though not all of you, for he knew who was to betray him. For this reason he said not. All of you are clean.
After he had washed their feet and had put on his robe and had returned to the table, he said to them. Do you know what i have done to you? You call me teacher and lord and you are right, but that is what i am so if i, your lord and teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet for i have set you an example that you also should do as i Have done to you very truly, i tell you. Servants are not greater than their master, nor a messenger greater than the one who sent them. If you know these things, you are blessed. If you do them, i am not. Speaking of all of you. I know whom i have chosen, but it is to fulfill the scripture, the one who ate my bread has lifted his heel against me. I tell you this now before it occurs, so that when it does occur, you may believe that i am he very truly. I tell you whoever receives one whom i send receives me and whoever receives me receives him who sent me thanks, be to god for this reading and a prayer, the heart of the journey by rachel pullman with death foreshadowed, you knelt a servant embracing cleansing blessing. The touch of love Music with betrayal in the air you lay at the table a rabbi listening teaching feeding the word of life with the journey set.
