On the Way to the Cross

In a matter of hours, Jesus would be betrayed by one of his own, tried before the Jewish council, and sentenced to death. And Jesus knew that. He would have to leave behind his followers and carry the cross to the execution site.

There he would suffer ridicule, torture, and most bitter of all, God's rejection. He would die as a ransom for the sins of the world and be buried. Then he would be raised to life and return to his glorious kingdom in heaven.

At this moment of departure, the Lord Jesus shared an evening meal with his disciples. John, a disciple of Jesus, recorded an important event that took place during this meal. The Lord Jesus "rose from supper, laid aside his garments, and girded himself with a towel. Then he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded" (John 13:4,5).
