The Last Supper

During Jesus’ final evening, he washes his disciples feet and shares a meal with them. If you scan the annals of ancient customs, you’ll be hard pressed to find an action any lower than washing someone’s feet. Loosing someone’s sandals and then personally washing their feet was the most servile of tasks reserved for the lowest of society. Just as astounding is the way Jesus positions his disciples around this triclinium meal, placing the greatest of the disciples in the most unlikely place, and the most unlikely disciple in the greatest place of honor. Jesus loved his disciples with an extravagant love, and by doing so set an example for all of his follows to emulate.
