Today being Maundy Thursday – the day of the Last Supper - I am posting 16 pics of the last supper. Half of them shows Jesus and His disciples sitting at the table and the next 8 pictures show Jesus washing the feet of his disciples.
The tradition in those days was for the lowest person in the room to wash the feet of those who entered a room after a journey because sandals did not afford a complete covering for the feet. Jesus was demonstrating a form of admonishment to his disciples to show them their arrogance and how they should humble themselves from the high place with the willingness to at times take the low place. Some of the humility and humbleness that is spoken of in 2Chronicles 7:14.
I hope all of you know the names of all the disciples of Jesus – These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Him.
Jesus was showing them that he also was a servent. And that he was humble. and by washing Judas feet that he had forgave Judas for what he had done. Jesus knew that it was God’s will for him to die.
