Jesus washed Judas' feet - the man who finally betrayed Him.

BroKen

Yes, He did, Patricia, and God "causes the rain (grace) to fall on the just and the unjust." But Judas was a man... not the symbol for betrayal he has become. It would be wrong to say that because Jesus washed Judas' feet, He washes the feet of "Judases". To do so is to confuse symbol and object which is what much "art" is designed to do. Remember the famous painting "This is not a pipe."

Footeashing is not merely an expression of God's grace. It is also an intimate sharing and support of one's "work". Jesus washed the disciple's feet, not the Pharisee's or Roman soldiers' feet or the feet of the crowds who came to hear him preach. I'll just say it again. Jesus does not was evil people's feet. He loves them. He died for them. His kindness calls them to repent. But He does not "wash their feet" unless they repent and join His kingdom.

I have to agree with you on this one, Broken:

I think too many people confuse jesus with buddha..
