But some of the questions I've been pondering are why we celebrate communion but we don't have footwashing as a ritual. I think I've got some answers around that question.
Another question raised by many scholars is whether there is a reference to baptism in the passage - I don't think there is.
However, one of the things that's hit me deeply has been Jesus' reaction to Simon Peter - in this passage and at other times (we looked at John 21 last week at church). Jesus' firmness and his grace has hit me again - in his reaction to Simon Peter and to me.
