  • Reversal. The Savior takes some water and a towel and begins to wash His followers’ foul feet.
  • Betrayal. It was very unsettling for them to hear that one of the twelve was a traitor. They became very nervous and wanted to know who it was.
  • Departure. The third detonation is found in verse 33 when Jesus told them that He was going to leave them: “My children, I will be with you only a little longer…”
  • Commandment. verses 34: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
  • Denial. The fifth explosion must have hit them very hard when Jesus predicted that the lead disciple, the point man, if you will, would bail when things got tough. verse 38: “Will you really lay down your life for me? I tell you the truth, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!”
what jesus offers
What Jesus Offers
  • Peace (1). The disciples were upset and so Jesus looked at them with tenderness and said in John 14:1: “Do not let your hearts be troubled.”
  • Place (2, 3a).verse 2: “In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.”
  • Promise (3).Jesus calms his frantic followers in verse 3, “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”
  • Plan (4-6).Thomas speaks up for the rest of the timid team. They just didn’t get it. What in the world was Jesus talking about? “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” In verse 6, “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me…’”

Exclusivity of Immanuel
  • Peter boldly states in Acts 4:12: “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”
  • 1 Timothy 2:5-6: “For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all men…”
  • I Corinthians 3:11: “For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
  • 1 John 5:12: “He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”

sinner s prayer
Sinner’s Prayer

Dear Lord Jesus,

I know that I am a sinner and that I walk in darkness. And I know that I cannot save myself. I turn away from my religion, from my good works, from anything good I have ever done and from anything good I will ever do. Apart from your mercy and grace, Lord Jesus Christ, I have no hope. I do believe you are the Light of the World, God in the flesh who died on the cross for my sins.

Lord Jesus, right now I believe in you and trust you and you alone for my salvation. I ask you to come into my life to be my Lord and Savior. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for taking my sins away. Amen.
