FHE-Jesus Washes the Apostles Feet

Family Night Lesson

Jesus Washing the Apostles’ Feet

Supplies: Wash Cloth

After Jesus had eaten the Last Supper with his Apostles, he put a towel around his waist and poured water into a small tub that was used to wash in, and then he began to wash and dry the Apostles’ feet.

When Jesus came to Simon Peter, Peter asked Jesus why he was washing his feet. Jesus told Peter that he would not understand then but that he would know later. Peter told Jesus that he didn’t need to wash his feet. Then Jesus told Peter he needed to let him wash his feet to become part of Him. Then Peter asked Jesus if he would wash his hands and head also. Jesus told him that he only needed to wash his feet.

When Jesus finished washing the Apostles’ feet, he said, “If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done unto you”.

Jesus was the Master and greatest among His apostles, and yet He showed His love to them by serving them. Jesus taught us that regardless of who we are, whether we are small or great, we need to serve and help one another. By doing this, we will become more like Him.

St. John 13:4-15

I love the story of when Christ washed the feet of the apostles. Thank you. I am working to provide a stake activity day on the subject of service. I want to include this story. May I use your little one page story to fit into their FHE packets? I am also adding the story of The "Good Samaritan." Thank you so much for being inspired to work on your blog the way you do. Love Sister Yvonne Hoskins
