Bible Commentary for John 13:6

Wesley's Notes for John 13:6


13:4 Layeth aside his garments - That part of them which would have hindered him.

13:5 Into the basin - A large vessel was usually placed for this very purpose, wherever the Jews supped.

13:7 What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter - We do not now know perfectly any of his works, either of creation, providence, or grace. It is enough that we can love and obey now, and that we shall know hereafter.

13:8 If I wash thee not - If thou dost not submit to my will, thou hast no part with me - Thou art not my disciple. In a more general sense it may mean, If I do not wash thee in my blood, and purify thee by my Spirit, thou canst have no communion with me, nor any share in the blessings of my kingdom.
