Discussion for Luke 22

  • A disciple
    "And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter." It seems that many think of Jesus as having no more feelings than the statues or pictures that they associate Him with. They seem to think that being stoic, is some kind of divine aspect of love. But I think, that the Lord was hurt by Peter's cowardly denial: even though He knew about it beforehand, doesn't take away from the offense of the crime!

    To Felicia - Thank-you, Felicia, for the scriptures; actually my interest was from vs. 10 - 16.
  • Dexter Burton
    This same chapter also says that Jesus removed his clothes or outer garment;why was that necessary.(#2)After washing their feet,he dried them with the towel he wrapped around his waist..Which would leave one to believe he was Naked..Again I ask;Why was this necessary.
  • Felicia
    To Irene: The washing of feet is found in John 13 the whole chapter is wonderful but your interest is from verses 3 to 10. Thank you.
  • Irene123
    V. 61 - "And the Lord turned and looked upon Peter"; and it broke Peter's heart. Jesus looked on Him with TOTAL love; no condemnation at all - not for denying, but because He loved him. He doesn't love us any less; He can't because Jesus is Love, and that's all he is - in this age of grace when we can still come to Him in repentance. One day He will be our judge, but not now.
