Passage:  John 13:1 – 17

1.  In verse 8 Jesus tells the Disciples that He must wash their feet or they have no part in Him.  Why do you think we can’t simply wash ourselves?

2.  Jesus tells them in verse 10 that while the washing of feet is what matters, washing the rest is unnecessary as the person is already clean.  What do you think Jesus meant by this, and are Christians today still trying to wash themselves as Peter wanted to do?

3.  What is the significance of Jesus waiting until after dinner to begin washing their feet, instead of when they had first entered the building as was customary?  You can be sure the timing was not an accident.

4.  Application:  Jesus washed the feet of everyone there, even Judas who He knew would betray Him.  As a servant of God, who’s feet will you wash (metaphorically) this week whether they deserve it or not?

5.  Additional discussion question (from Pastor): Jesus washed the disciples feet as an example for us to follow (John 13:15-17). What are some PRACTICAL ways you can follow His example in humbly serving others?

Jesus served them all, even Judas who would betray Him.
