This passage introduces Jesus’ “Farewell Discourse” and begins the second half of John’s Gospel. Jesus, rejected by the religious authorities, now turns to the new Messianic community. During a meal, some say the Lord’s Supper, Jesus assumes the role of a servant and washes the disciples’ feet. Here the disciples see their Master and Lord humbling Himself and doing the dirty work, as a message to them for their future roles. Peter objects at first, but once he understands, wants to be washed head to toe. Thus, this is how the disciples are to treat one another.
