The Towel, Jan. 21-27

Discussion Questions

  1. Have you ever seen a “foot-washing” or participated in one? What was it like? How did you feel about it?
  2. (Read John 13:1-3) What did Jesus know? How does his knowledge make washing his disciples’ feet even more significant?
  3. How does Jesus show his love to us “to the end”? (John 13:1)
  4. What did Jesus concretely do (John 13:4-5)?
  5. Why do you think Peter objected? And how did Jesus answer him? How do we sometimes misunderstand God and think we know better?
  6. What does Jesus mean by his answer, “unless I wash you, you have no part with me?” Have you been washed by Jesus? Explain.
  7. What did Jesus say we are to do (John 13:14)? What could that practically look like in our daily lives?

John 13:1-17

Outline

Jesus’ inner thoughts

He knew the time

He knew the devil

He knew who he is


Jesus’ humble service: washing our feet and cleansing our souls

You don’t understand

You must be washed clean by me or you have no part in me

You are clean, but not all of you


Jesus’ instruction: follow his example

Follow his example by “washing one another’s feet”

Know we are servants sent by our Master

We will be blessed if we do this.
