John 13

New Commandment – New Covenant

Jesus begins to explain the New Covenant, starting with the New Commandment. Peter’s immediate interruption gives us a helfpul picture of common ways we distort and diminish the wonders of what Jesus is revealing.

Wash One Another’s Feet

Jesus’ command to wash one another’s feet points to the humility Christians should have in loving others. But in particular it points to the chief way we exercise that loving humility, that is the way we deal with each other’s sin within the Church. The Church is a community of grace and it displays God’s glory and power most clearly when its members exercise grace towards one another in dealing with sin.
