• Foot Washing in Five Stages Media Resource by

    John 13:1-12

    The day before His crucifixion, Jesus shared His heart with His disciples. In what we know as the Upper Room or Farewell Discourse of John 13-17, He announced His betrayal and denial; foretold His death, glorification, and departure from this world; promised the coming Holy Spirit; and prayed in preparation for all that was to take place. In this series, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson walks us through these events, whose setting he calls “five wonderful hours with the Master.” In this message, Dr. Ferguson especially examines Jesus’ foot-washing in five stages, physically and theologically, in which He reveals Himself as the … View Resource

  • Do for Others What Has Been Done for You Media Resource by

    John 13:12-21

    Most people are familiar with the “Golden Rule” of Matthew 7:12: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” In this message, Dr. Ferguson connects this wellknown maxim to the foot-washing in John 13. As he continues to open up this event, Dr. Ferguson discusses the gospel as the key to understanding what Christ has done in washing His disciples’ feet and what He wants them to do in washing the feet of others. Dr. Ferguson challenges Christians to “do for others what has been done for you” by Christ. View Resource

    John 13:18

    The pain, suffering, and agony Jesus experienced during His Passion defy conceptualization. Sometimes, as Christians, we ask in our hearts, “How did He bear such a burden?” The short answer, the answer that causes tears to well up in our eyes and our hearts to swell, is love. On His way to Calvary, Jesus maintained His path and persevered on the ascent out of love for His Father and love for the ones for whom He came to die. Far from an impersonal act of selflessness, the incarnated Son of God knew each and every individual for whom He offered … View Resource

  • A Glimpse into the Heart of the Master Media Resource by

    John 13:21-30

    Even though we know that Jesus never sinned, we have a difficult time coming to grips with the fact that He could become agitated. Still, knowing that He would be betrayed and who would carry out the task, He was indeed deeply troubled, but hardly surprised. He knew His destiny, and He, not Judas or anyone else, governed it. In this lesson, Dr. Ferguson reveals the mind and heart of our Savior who was intimately familiar with all of the painful experiences of humanity. In an atmosphere polluted by the presence of His betrayer, we are reminded again that the … View Resource

  • Glorified Yet Denied Media Resource by

    John 13:31-38

    The polluted atmosphere changed with the departure of Judas from the Upper Room. Jesus then more freely opened Himself and His plan to the remaining disciples. The moment anticipated in John 1:14 had come. The Son of Man had arrived at His glory and the kingdom would be expanded as a result. Yet, as Dr. Ferguson shows in this lesson, the way down to the cross was the way up to glory. He also makes clear that the crucifixion is not just a time of pity or sadness, but also a time of triumph. The disciples did not understand, and … View Resource
