John 13:6 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary
1) "Then cometh he to Simon Peter:- (erchetai oun pros Simona Petron) "Then he comes by choice to Simon Peter," the more impulsive speaker of the twelve apostles, apparently as Jesus was washing the disciples' feet in order, as He came to them, Joh 13:5.
2) "And Peter saith unto him, Lord," (legei auto kurie) "He (Peter) says directly to him, Lord," in honest disapproval; He said it at first with strong emphasis of protest, reflecting a distinct trait of his normal character.
3) "Dost thou wash my feet?" (su mou nipteis tous poclas) "Do you (intend to)wash my feet?" or do you think I would let you wash my feet? You do not, do you? He asked emphatically. This is much as John the Baptist first hesitated to baptize Jesus, Mat 3:14. Apparently Peter drew back his feet when the Lord came to him, Mat 20:26,28.
