"After that he poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. John 13:5
""I am certain that no artist has ever considered himself worthy or his talents adequate to paint Jesus - the Christ - the Messiah; however, I felt compelled to do just that. When I started the paintings of the Twelve Apostles, I knew that eventually I would need to paint their Master to complete the project. The setting would be a time when He was with all the Apostles. The Last Supper! One of my seminary professors once said, 'If the cross were not the symbol of the Christian faith, then it would be the basin and towel, representing the service that Christians must render to others.' What an opportunity to show this in my painting - the Last Supper and Jesus in service to His Apostles! I decided that I would paint the Christ as He rose from the table, took off His garment, girded Himself with a towel, and poured water into the basin.""
