Abstract:

A meditation on what Jesus did at the Last Supper when he laid his outer clothing aside and washed and tried his disciples' feet, a task ordinarily performed by the lowly household slave. The author pursues the connection of this gesture of humility and service to Jesus' actions at the Supper with the bread and wine, to the beatitudes and the rule of God in Jesus' ministry, and to the actions of Judas and Peter at the end of Jesus' life. In calling us to follow Jesus' example, the author invites us to break down the barriers which separate human beings and to put ourselves at the service of the weakest among us. This book speaks to all who want the teaching of Jesus to be sewn into the fabric of their daily lives.
