THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST
THE DAY GOD WASHED THEIR
(John 13:6-11) Then
cometh he to Simon [Heb: hearing] Peter [Gk: a piece of
(the) rock]: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou
shalt know hereafter. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet
[exposing and manifesting Peter’s pride]. Jesus answered him, If
I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith [manifesting
trust and love] unto him, Lord, not my feet [walk] only, but also my
hands [works] and my head [symbolic of his thoughts]. Jesus saith
to him, He that is washed [Gk: louo; bathed] needeth not
save to wash [Gk: nipto; cleanse] his feet, but is
clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all. For he knew who
should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.
washed = Gk: louo; to bathe (the whole person).
Commentary: All the disciples were washed (Gk: louo;
bathed), but one of them was still dirty, defiled.
(John 13:12-15) So
after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments [herein
symbolic of “Master and Lord”], and was set down again, he said unto
them, Know ye what I have done to you? Ye call me Master and Lord:
and ye say well; for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed [Gk:
nipto; cleansed] your feet; ye also ought to wash [Gk: nipto;
cleanse] one another's feet. For I have given you an
example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
