As a precursor to showing the disciples the full extent of his love -Jesus washes ALL of their feet. In spite of one of them denying they ever knew him, one of them handing him over for some money and ultimately all of them deserting him, Jesus still showed such unconditional love that no one could tell who would do what!
The Lord then instituted Lord’s supper that would be a memorial for all of us to remember the length, width and depth of his unending and unconditional love. The communion now serves as a constant reminder that in spite of OUR denial, betrayal, and desertion of the Lord, salvation is now available for all.
What a Saviour!!
