John 13:15 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "For I have given you an example," (hupodeigma gar edoka humin) "For I gave you (by it) an example," of what? An example, not an ordinance, of humility, hospitality, and help and acceptance of others, as they are, in social fellowship. Neither this nor any other Bible reference to foot-washing was ever in connection with religious worship.

2) "That ye should do as I have done to you." (hina kathos ego epoiesa humin kai humeis poiete) 1Pe 4:9, "in order that just as I did to you all, you all may also do," show hospitality, friendship, and humility to all who come into your home or residence, to sit down and dine at any common meal, Mat 11:29; Php_2:5; 1Pe 2:21; 1Jn 2:6; Heb 13:1-2; Rom 12:13.
