    Study of Peter: “Give me a bath”

    ...nd His disciples would have been met at the door of the “upper room” where Passover was to be celebrated by a Gentile servant who would have washed the dirt off their feet. Not so that night. Apparently Peter and John forgot to attend to that detail! John writes, “It was just before the Passover Feast, Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them...

That is not what Passover was.” When the Hebrews were to be delivered from Egypt, God gave them specific instructions for what to do: take a year-old lamb without spot or blemish, sacrifice it and put the blood of the spotless lamb on the door of your house, the sides and top of the door. God’s message was clear. “On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn...

    ...f Gethsemane After Jesus put away the towel and basin of water and ate the Passover meal with His followers, He taught them a great deal about what would happen in the days that followed (John 14 – 17). Later that evening Jesus and the disciples left the Passover meal, crossed the Kidron Valley on the east side of Jerusalem and entered an olive grove (John 18:1) which was called Gethsemane (Matthew 26:36), a name which meant “oil press.” He left m...

    Study of Peter: Jesus predicts Peter’s denial

    ...Click here for the entire series. The setting is the Upper Room where the Passover meal was held. After finishing the Passover meal, Jesus spoke in somewhat cloaked terms about being “glorified” (a reference to His death and the salvation that would be possible through His sacrifice) but more plainly about the fact that He would be leaving His followers for a place they were not yet able to go (John 13:31-33). Then He commanded them to love each...

    Why are we “washed in the blood?”

    ...icture foreshadowing Christ’s sacrifice on the cross is the event of Passover: “The ancient Israelites were enslaved in Egypt, and God sent 10 plagues to convince the pharaoh to free them.

    ...ou.” Jesus responded, “Feed my little lambs” (John 21:15). Earlier, at the Passover meal Peter had declared, “Even if all fall away, I will not” (Mark 14:29).
