It is Thursday evening in an upper room where a traditional passover meal is being celebrated. After the opening prayer comes the blessing of the cup and washing of hands. This is when Jesus washes the disciples' feet. Afterwards, bitter herbs are dipped in sauce and sampled. This is when Judas Iscariot leaves to do his work. During supper some disciples speak of who is regarded as the greatest of them. Jesus turns to Simon Peter who hears some unexpected words from his Lord (Luke 22 verses 31&32). Peter's devotion and the sincerety of the deciples are known but Jesus also knows that they are not prepared for what would happen tommorrow.
