This is the beginning of the Farewell Discourse, the second half of John’s gospel. Jesus turns his attention to the “new Messianic community” that started with the disciples. Kent discusses whether foot-washing is an ordinance or a symbol of cleansing or a call to Christians to be humble servants to fellow believers, Jesus’ own. Does this occur on Maundy Thursday? Kent also discusses how Judas Iscariot becomes the devil’s tool and how Peter must be convinced that Jesus must wash his feet.
