Foot Washing in John 13 and the Johannine Community

Seven special discernible reasons for the ordinance of foot washing are identified.

Victor Pilmoor, treasurer, South England Conference, Watford, Hertfordshire, England.

Thomas has published a notable and eminently useful book that can be of great benefit to Christian ministers who are interested in both the pursuit and proclamation of truth. His book is based on many years of research, including the most recent scholarly findings from American and European universities.

Seven special discernible reasons for the ordinance of foot washing are identified and conclude strongly in favor of foot washing as a means of baptismal renewal (as indicated by Jesus in John 13:10), and as the primary, divinely appointed purpose of this ordinance.

What is particularly unique about Thomas's book besides advocating the restoration of the practice of foot washing as an ordinance provided by our Lord, is his recommendation that the seventh-day Sabbath should be considered for restoration by contemporary Christianity in place of Sunday worship.
