Washing of Feet By Jesus

John 13:5-17 …*Then Jesus poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciple’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel that was tied around him. 6* He came to Simon Peter, and. Peter said to Him
. . -Lord do you wash my feet?, 7* Jesus answered him,
– what I am doing now you do not know now, but after you will understand. 8* Peter said to Him,
– You shall never wash my feet.
-Jesus answered him, if I don’t wash you, you have no part in me. .. 10*
-He who has bathed does not need to wash, except for feet, but he is clean all over, and you are clean, but not all of you.. 12* .Do you know what I have done to you?, 13*. you call me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am. 14*. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.

15*. for I have given an mycatholicapp, that you also should do as I have don e to you. 16*. truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. 17* If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.* ,

This Passage is very straight forward it is simply showing and commanding the Priest/Lay faithful to show humility among themselves.. , 1 Timothy 5:10 was praising woman of good deeds who also show her hospitality by washing the feet of Saints, and relieved the afflicted ,

Luke 7:37-38 (NIV) …’A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them. ,

Luke 7:45.. You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss my feet, 47 I tell you her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much; , Beyond this, the whole bit of kissing the hand/ring/ foot is very old, and like all established traditions, it is a hold-over from a by-gone era (in this case of kings, and dukes, and lords). ,


Exodus. 30:18-21. .the Lord commanded Moses ..*You shall also make a laver of bronze, with its base of bronze, for the washing. and shall put it between the tent of meeting and the altar, and you shall put water in it.20*.. They shall wash their hands and their feet, lest they die Exodus. 40:31 with which Moses and Aaron washed their hands and their feet
