This paper reveals and explains a NEW MIRACLE by Jesus Christ, his greatest. The miracle is now apparent but was not previously apparent.

The miracle is the washing by Jesus of the feet of his Disciples at the Last Supper* together with the words he used to explain what he was doing and why. See the Gospel of John (John 13:1-20). The revelation of the miracle is based on a NEW understanding of the words of Jesus in John 13:1-20.

For convenience, the Gospel of John is set out in Attachment A to this paper.

*Note: The Last Supper is called "Lord's Supper" by most Protestants and "Mystical Supper" by members of the Eastern Orthodox Church.

The miracle enables us to cure and prevent many diseases, infections, illnesses and other conditions caused by viruses, bacteria and other harmful microorganisms. See Papers #2, #3, #4, #5 and #15 on my website geeryanhealth.com.

For convenience, Papers #2, #3, #4, #5 and #15 are set out in Attachment B to this paper; and Paper #15 is also set out below.

In my view, Jesus intended that the miracle would come to come to light for the FIRST time in this current era, not before. See John 13:7.

And in my view, Jesus intended that, once the miracle had come to light, it would persuade ALL people to follow his central instruction "love one another", meaning love ALL others. That is, for each and every one of us .. regardless of whatever religious beliefs or spiritual beliefs we hold and regardless of holding no such beliefs at all .. to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others.

Immediately after this Last Supper washing of feet (John 13:1-20), Jesus then FIVE times gave his "love one another" instruction, meaning love ALL others. By this giving of the instruction five times, Jesus made it clear that this was his CENTRAL instruction. See John 13:34 (twice), John 13:35, John 15:12 and John 15:17.

These matters are briefly explained in Paper #15 on geeryanhealth.com (as stated, set out in Attachment B to this paper and also below) and are explained in greater detail in this paper.

To understand Paper #15 and this paper, it is FIRST necessary to read Papers #2, #3, #4 and #5 on geeryanhealth.com (as stated, set out in Attachment B to this paper).

New approach to curing and preventing many health problems

Paper #15: "Love one another"

 

Note: It is important to have read Papers #2, #3, #4 and #5 before reading this paper.

I am not a religious person, not at all. But I am a very spiritual person. The two are quite different!

Immediately after Jesus Christ had washed the feet of his Disciples at the Last Supper, he then FIVE times gave his "love one another" instruction, meaning love ALL others. By this giving of the instruction five times, Jesus made it clear that this was his CENTRAL instruction.

These two matters at the Last Supper are dealt with in the Gospel of John:

(1) John 13:1-20 for the washing by Jesus of the feet of his Disciples in a basin (John 13:5) together with the words he used to explain what he was doing and why, and 

(2) Immediately after this washing of feet, John 13:34 (twice), John 13:35, John 15:12 and John 15:17 for his "love one another" instruction.

And there are two related passages .. John 14:2 and John 21:17-24.

The above verses are set out below.

In my view, if the words of Jesus in John 13:1-20 are reexamined in the light of the basin procedure and also the bath procedure, as explained in Papers #2 and #3 (see also Papers #4 and #5), these words then reveal a NEW MIRACLE by Jesus, his greatest.

Repeating .. in my view, if the words of Jesus in John 13:1-20 are reexamined in the light of the basin procedure and also the bath procedure, as explained in Papers #2 and #3 (see also Papers #4 and #5), these words then reveal a NEW MIRACLE by Jesus, his greatest.

In my view, Jesus intended that the miracle would come to light for the FIRST time in this current era, not before. See John 13:7.

And in my view, Jesus intended that, once the miracle had come to light, it would persuade ALL people to follow his central instruction "love one another", meaning love ALL others. That is, for each and every one of us .. regardless of whatever religious beliefs or spiritual beliefs we hold and regardless of holding no such beliefs at all .. to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others. As stated, see John 13:34 (twice), John 13:35, John 15:12 and John 15:17 for Jesus' "love one another" instruction.

It is most likely that the water for this Last Supper washing of feet had come from a well, in which case it would have been rich in sodium chloride*. Even if the water had come from a river or stream, it would have contained some sodium chloride. And the water would have been at room temperature .. that is, not cold.

*Note: Table salt is about 97% to 99% sodium chloride.

So, the water would have been capable of drawing from the body harmful microorganisms, both: (a) The foreign microorganisms (pathogens) as explained in Paper #2, and (b) The excess numbers of our natural microorganisms (microbiota) when they have multiplied too greatly as explained in Paper #3 .. that is, of causing them to exit the body via the feet and hands, the MOST important skin exit areas for them .. thereby curing and preventing many diseases, infections, illnesses and other conditions. See Papers #2 and #3 (and also Papers #4 and #5).

By Jesus washing the feet of his Disciples .. that is, washing their feet in water containing sodium chloride because it had come from a well or from a river or stream and which was at room temperature (not cold) .. harmful microorganisms would have exited their feet and his hands.

And if the Disciples had followed his instruction (John 13:13-15) for them to wash one another's feet .. that is, to wash one another’s feet in water containing sodium chloride and at least at room temperature (not cold) .. harmful microorganisms would have exited the feet and hands of each of them.

In my view, Jesus intended that we follow this example of washing one another's feet. See John 13:13-17.

By following the example .. that is, by washing one another's feet in a basin filled with warm, slightly salty (table salt) water:

(1) We will be able to cure and prevent many problems caused by harmful microorganisms, be they: (a) The foreign microorganisms (pathogens) as explained in Paper #2, or (b) The excess numbers of our natural microorganisms (microbiota) when they have multiplied too greatly as explained in Paper #3, (also see Papers #4 and #5), and

(2) We will be reminded of this miracle by Jesus and therefore of the correctness and importance of his central instruction to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others.

History shows that this "love one another" central instruction of Jesus has never been followed by any of the Christian denominations or by the vast majority of those who called themselves Christians. They therefore betrayed Jesus.

This betrayal continues today .. that is, the betrayal of Jesus by all of today’s Christian denominations and by the vast majority of those today who call themselves Christians, by failing to follow the "love one another" central instruction of Jesus .. as evidenced on our television news every evening and by the documents* currently (2014) on the websites of today's Christian denominations or currently (2014) approved by them for the teaching of their beliefs or for use in their sacraments and other religious services.

*Note: These documents fail to mention the need to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others. Instead, they focus on other matters and they contain a great many beliefs and statements that are inconsistent with the “love one another” instruction.

In my view, Jesus predicted this betrayal. See John 13:18-19 and the first part of John 21:18.

And in my view, he also predicted what would flow from this betrayal. See John 13:19, the second part of John 21:18 and John 21:19.

As stated, the relevant verses in relation to the above matters .. that is, John 13:1-20, John 13:34, John 13:35, John 14:2, John 15:12, John 15:17 and John 21:17-24 .. are set out below. They are from the King James Bible (Oxford Standard Text of 1769) but with the words of Jesus in redhttps://en.m.wikisource.org/wiki/Bible_(King_James)/John.

Although the English is very old (1611, the same period as Shakespeare), the King James Bible (KJB), also known as the King James Version (KJV) and Authorised Version (AV), is widely regarded as being the most authoritative version of the Bible.

Note added on 10 July 2017: I have now written a separate paper, entitled New Miracle by Jesus Christ: Miracle for the Cure and Prevention of Many Diseases, Infections, Illnesses and other Conditions, that explains the above matters in greater detail. I have published the paper on my website newmiraclebyjesuschrist.com

The Gospel of John

John 13:1-20

"1 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

2 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;

3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;

4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

5 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.

6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?

7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.

9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.

12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?

13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.

15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.

17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

18 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.

19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.

20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me."

.............................................................................

John 13:34

"34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."

....

John 15:12

"12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you."

....

John 15:17

"17 These things I command you, that ye love one another."

John 21:17-24

"17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.

19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.

20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?

21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?

22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.

23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?

24 This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true."

Detailed analysis and comments

The following analysis of and comments on the above verses explain in greater detail the above brief explanation of the matters in Paper #15 on geeryanhealth.com.

John 13:1

"Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end."

These words are clear and do not require analysis or comments.

........

John 13:2

"And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;"

These words are clear and do not require analysis or comments.

........

John 13:3

"Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;"

These words are clear and do not require analysis or comments.

........

John 13:4

"He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself."

These words are clear and do not require analysis or comments.

........

John 13:5

"After that he poureth water into a bason*, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded."

*Note: The early spelling of basin was "bason".

It is most likely that the water for this Last Supper washing of feet had come from a well, in which case it would have been rich in sodium chloride**. Even if the water had come from a river or stream, it would have contained some sodium chloride. And the water would have been at room temperature .. that is, not cold.

**Note: Table salt is about 97% to 99% sodium chloride.

So, the water would have been capable of drawing from the body harmful microorganisms, both: (a) The foreign microorganisms (pathogens) as explained in Paper #2, and (b) The excess numbers of our natural microorganisms (microbiota) when they have multiplied too greatly as explained in Paper #3 .. that is, of causing them to exit the body via the feet and hands, the MOST important skin exit areas for them .. thereby curing and preventing many diseases, infections, illnesses and other conditions. See Papers #2 and #3 (and also Papers #4 and #5).

By Jesus washing the feet of his Disciples .. that is, washing their feet in water containing sodium chloride because it had come from a well or from a river or stream and which was at room temperature (not cold) .. harmful microorganisms would have exited their feet and his hands.

........

John 13:6

"Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?"

In John 13:6, Peter was asking Jesus to explain why Jesus was about to wash Peter's feet?

........

John 13:7

"Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter."

In John 13:7, Jesus was saying in reply to Peter that what Jesus was doing (washing the Disciples' feet) could not be understood now but would be understood later.

I interpret the words of Jesus in John 13:7 as meaning: My washing of the Disciples' feet is not capable of being understood now (because this would require a knowledge of medical science that does not yet exist) but my washing of the Disciples' feet will be understood at a later time (when this knowledge does exist).

In my view this knowledge now exists and this later time is our current era, as a result of: (a) The information in Papers #2 and #3 (see also Papers #4 and #5), (b) The brief explanation of the matters in Paper #15, and (c) The more detailed explanation of these matters in this paper.

 

........

John 13:8

"Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me."

In John 13:8, Jesus was saying in reply to Peter's refusal that it was essential for Peter to allow Jesus to wash Peter's feet.

........

John 13:9

"Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head."

In John 13:9, Peter had changed his mind and was now saying in reply to Jesus that he would be happy for Jesus to wash not only Peter's feet but also Peter's hands and head.

........

John 13:10

"Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all."

In John 13:10, Jesus was saying in reply to Peter two things:

(1) A person who has already washed only needs to wash their feet in order to be completely clean, and

(2) You, Peter, are clean but not all of you, Peter.

I interpret the words of Jesus in John 13:10 as meaning:

(1) A person who has already washed their body will have clean skin but will not be clean inside their body because they will still be carrying harmful microorganisms inside their body and, in order to be completely clean, they therefore need to wash their feet .. that is, as explained in John 13:5 above, to wash their feet (using their hands to do this) in water containing sodium chloride and at least at room temperature (not cold), thereby causing the harmful microorganisms to exit their body via their feet and hands, being the most important skin exit areas for harmful microorganisms. See Papers #2 and #3 (and also Papers #4 and #5), and

(2) You, Peter, have clean skin but you are not clean inside your body because you are carrying harmful microorganisms inside your body.

........

John 13:11

"For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean."

In John 13:11, Jesus was saying that he would be betrayed by Judas.

The words of Jesus in John 13:11 "Ye are not all clean" are different from his words in John 13:10 "ye are clean, but not all". This is because the words have TWO different meanings.

The words in John 13:10 "ye are clean, but not all" are explained above .. that is, in John 13:10, I interpret the "ye" as referring to Peter and the "clean, but not all" as referring to Peter's body having clean skin on the outside but not being clean of harmful microorganisms on the inside. 

Whereas the words in John 13:11 "Ye are not all clean" are referring to the coming betrayal by Judas .. that is, in John 13:11, I interpret the "Ye" as referring to the Disciples and the "not all clean" as referring to one of them (Judas) who would soon betray Jesus.

........

John 13:12

"So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?"

In John 13:12, Jesus was asking a rhetorical question in order to emphasise to his Disciples the great importance and significance of his washing of their feet.

........

John 13:13

"Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am."

These words are clear and do not require analysis or comments.

........

John 13:14

"If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet."

In John 13:14, Jesus was saying to his Disciples that if he, their Lord and Master, had washed their feet then they also should wash one another's feet.

I interpret the words of Jesus in John 13:14 as meaning that the Disciples should wash one another's feet in water containing sodium chloride and at least at room temperature (not cold) because, as explained in John 13:5 above, by doing this harmful microorganisms would exit the feet and hands of each of them, being the most important skin exit areas for harmful microorganisms. See Papers #2 and #3 (and also Papers #4 and #5).

........

John 13:15

"For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you."

In John 13:15, Jesus was saying to his Disciples that his washing of their feet was intended as an example and they should follow the example by washing one another's feet as instructed in John 13:14.

I interpret the words of Jesus in John 13:15 as meaning that Jesus' washing of the feet of the Disciples together with his instruction in John 13:14 for them to wash one another's feet was intended as an example for us to follow.

By following the example .. that is, by washing one another's feet in a basin filled with warm, slightly salty (table salt) water:

(1) We will be able to cure and prevent many problems caused by harmful microorganisms, be they: (a) The foreign microorganisms (pathogens) as explained in Paper #2, or (b) The excess numbers of our natural microorganisms (microbiota) when they have multiplied too greatly as explained in Paper #3, (also see Papers #4 and #5), and

(2) We will be reminded of this miracle by Jesus and therefore of the correctness and importance of his central instruction to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others.

........

John 13:16

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him."

In John 13:16, Jesus was saying two things:

(1) A servant is not greater than his lord.*

(2) A person who is sent by another is not greater than the person who sent him.

I interpret the words of Jesus in John 13:16 as meaning:

 (1) Our natural microorganisms (microbiota) are servants of our body ("lord") and are essential for its good health but, if they multiply too greatly, their excess numbers cease to be servants and become harmful .. that is, they become "greater" than their "lord". See Paper #3 (and also Papers #2 and #4).

(2) A person who is sent by Jesus is not greater than Jesus. See John 13:20 below; and also see John 14:16-20, 14:26-29, 15:26 and 16:7-16 in Attachment A to this paper.

*Note: In John 15:20, Jesus uses the words "The servant is not greater than his lord" in a different context. That is, these words have one meaning in John 13:16 and another meaning in John 15:20. The words of Jesus in John 15:20 are: "Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also." See Attachment A to this paper.

 

........

John 13:17

"If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them."

In John 13:17, Jesus was saying that, once the above matters have been understood, we will be happy if we do them.

I interpret the words of Jesus in John 13:17 as meaning that, once the above matters have been understood, we will benefit by washing one another's feet in a basin filled with warm, slightly salty (table salt) water because, as stated, by doing this:

(1) We will be able to cure and prevent many problems caused by harmful microorganisms, be they: (a) The foreign microorganisms (pathogens) as explained in Paper #2, or (b) The excess numbers of our natural microorganisms (microbiota) when they have multiplied too greatly as explained in Paper #3, (also see Papers #4 and #5), and

(2) We will be reminded of this miracle by Jesus and therefore of the correctness and importance of his central instruction to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others.

In my view the above matters can now be understood, as a result of: (a) The information in Papers #2 and #3 (see also Papers #4 and #5), (b) The brief explanation of the matters in Paper #15, and (c) The more detailed explanation of these matters in this paper.

........

John 13:18

"I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me."

In John 13:18, Jesus was predicting that he would be betrayed.

I interpret Jesus' prediction of his betrayal in John 13:18 as being his betrayal by those who would call themselves Christians but who would fail to follow Jesus' central instruction "love one another", meaning love ALL others. See the first part of John 21:18 below; and also see John 13:19, the second part of John 21:18 and John 21:19 below.

In other words, I interpret the prediction by Jesus of his betrayal in John 13:18 as being IN ADDITION TO the prediction by him of his betrayal by Judas (see John 13:11 above and John 6:70-71, 13:21-30 and 17:12 in Attachment A to this paper), both of which betrayals enabled the Old Testament scripture (Psalm 41:9) to be fulfilled.

As stated, immediately after this Last Supper washing of feet (John 13:1-20), Jesus then five times gave his "love one another" instruction, meaning love ALL others. See John 13:34 (twice), John 13:35, John 15:12 and John 15:17 below. By this giving of the instruction five times, Jesus made it clear that this was his central instruction.

History shows that this "love one another" central instruction of Jesus has never been followed by any of the Christian denominations* or by the vast majority of those who called themselves Christians. They therefore betrayed Jesus.

This betrayal continues today .. that is, the betrayal of Jesus by all of today’s Christian denominations* and by the vast majority of those today who call themselves Christians, by failing to follow the "love one another" central instruction of Jesus .. as evidenced on our television news every evening and by the documents** currently (2017) on the websites of today's Christian denominations* or currently (2017) approved by them for the teaching of their beliefs or for use in their sacraments and other religious services.

*Note: By "denominations" I mean all the churches, fellowships, bodies and similar organised groupings within Christianity whether or not they regard themselves as being a denomination. I therefore include in "denominations" both the Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church even though each regards itself as being "pre-denominational" and therefore not being a denomination.

**Note: These documents fail to mention the need to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others. Instead, they focus on other matters and they contain a great many beliefs and statements that are inconsistent with the “love one another” instruction.

........

John 13:19

"Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he."

In John 13:19, Jesus was saying that, when his prediction of his betrayal in John 13:18 is shown to have been a correct prediction, people may then believe he was exactly who he said he was, namely both the Son of God* and the Son of man*.

In my view, Jesus' prediction of his betrayal in John 13:18 is now shown by Paper #15 and this paper to be have been a correct prediction.

And in my view, the main consequence of Jesus' prediction of his betrayal in John 13:18 being shown to have been a correct prediction, thereby then enabling people to believe he was exactly who he said he was namely both the Son of God* and the Son of man*, will be that they will then follow his central instruction to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others.

*Note: In the Gospel of John, Jesus described himself as being the "Son of God" in John: 5:25, 9:35, 10:36 and 11:4; as being the "only begotten Son of God" in John 3:18; as being God's "only begotten Son" in John 3:16; as being God's "Son" in John 3:17; and as being the "Son" of "the Father" in John 5:19, 5:20, 5:21, 5:22, 5:23, 5:26, 14:13 and 17:1. See Attachment A to this paper. And in the Gospel of John, Jesus also described himself as being the "Son of man" in John 1:51, 3:13, 3:14, 5:27, 6:27, 6:53, 6:62, 8:28, 12:23, 12:34 and 13:31. See Attachment A to this paper. It is therefore clear that Jesus described himself as being both the Son of God and the Son of man.

........

John 13:20

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me."

In John 13:20, Jesus was saying that, if people receive someone whom Jesus sends*, then they will receive Jesus and they will also receive God because God sent Jesus**.

I interpret the words of Jesus in John 13:20 as meaning: If people follow the teachings of someone whom Jesus sends*, then they will be following the teachings of Jesus and they will therefore be doing what God wants them to do because God sent Jesus**.

*Note: In the Gospel of John, the other statements by Jesus at the Last Supper in relation to Jesus sending someone, or causing God to send someone on Jesus' behalf, are in John 14:16-20, 14:26-29, 15:26 and 16:7-16. See Attachment A to this paper. I interpret the words of Jesus in these verses as meaning that Jesus was promising he would send, or would cause God to send on Jesus' behalf, a number of different individuals at different times (that is, not just a single individual at one time only) and the Soul of each of these individuals would carry the Holy Spirit. Please note that the words "Comforter" and "Holy Ghost" in these verses are old English and that modern English versions of the Bible use "Helper" instead of "Comforter" and "Holy Spirit" instead of "Holy Ghost".

**Note: In the Gospel of John, Jesus said that he was sent by God (or said words having the same meaning) in John 3:13, 3:16, 3:17, 4:34, 5:23, 5:24, 5:30, 5:36, 5:37, 5:38, 6:29, 6:33, 6:38, 6:39, 6:40, 6:41, 6:42, 6:44, 6:50, 6:51, 6:57, 6:58, 7:16, 7:18, 7:28, 7:29, 7:33, 8:16, 8:18, 8:26, 8:29, 8:42, 9:4, 10:36, 11:42, 12:44, 12:45, 12:49, 13:20, 14:24, 15:21, 16:5, 16:27, 16:28, 17:3, 17:8, 17:18, 17:21, 17:23, 17:25 and 20:21. See Attachment A to this paper.

John 13:34

"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."

As stated, immediately after this Last Supper washing of feet (John 13:1-20), Jesus then five times gave his "love one another" instruction. See John 13:34 (twice), John 13:35, John 15:12 and John 15:17. By this giving of the instruction five times, Jesus made it clear that this was his central instruction.

And as stated, I interpret this "love one another" instruction as meaning for ALL people to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others. That is, for each and every one of us .. regardless of whatever religious beliefs or spiritual beliefs we hold and regardless of holding no such beliefs at all .. to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others.

.......

John 13:35

"By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."

In John 13:35 immediately after this Last Supper washing of feet (John 13:1-20), Jesus was giving the instruction a third time.

In my view, Jesus' words "have love one to another" in John 13:35 have the same meaning as his words "love one another" in John 13:34 (twice), John 15:12 and John 15:17.

For my interpretation of Jesus' "love one another" words, see John 13:34 above.

........

John 14:2

"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."

In John 14:2 immediately after this Last Supper washing of feet (John 13:1-20), Jesus was saying three things:

(1) In his Father's house are many mansions.

(2) If this were not the case, Jesus would have said so.

(3) Jesus will go to prepare a place for us.

I interpret the words of Jesus in John 14:2 as meaning:

(1) God is happy for us to hold whatever religious beliefs or spiritual beliefs we like or to hold no such beliefs at all, provided we "love one another" meaning love ALL others.

(2) If this were not the case, Jesus would have said so.

(3) Jesus will take action ("prepare a place") to cause these matters to be made clear.

In other words, in John 14:2 Jesus was saying it does not matter to God what religious beliefs or spiritual beliefs a person holds including holding no such beliefs at all, all that matters to God is that the person "loves one another" meaning loves ALL others; and Jesus will take action to cause these matters to be made clear.

In my view, as a result of Paper #15 and this paper, these matters are now clear.

........

John 15:12

"This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you."

In John 15:12 immediately after this Last Supper washing of feet (John 13:1-20), Jesus was giving his "love one another" instruction a fourth time.

For my interpretation of Jesus' "love one another" words, see John 13:34 above.

........

John 15:17

"These things I command you, that ye love one another."

In John 15:17 immediately after this Last Supper washing of feet (John 13:1-20), Jesus was giving his "love one another" instruction a fifth time.

For my interpretation of Jesus' "love one another" words, see John 13:34 above.

.............................................................................

John 21:17

"He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep."

In John 21:17, Jesus was asking Peter for the third time if Peter loved Jesus (?) and, when Peter again replied that he did, Jesus then said to Peter "Feed my sheep", by which he meant he was appointing Peter to lead Jesus' followers.

........

John 21:18

"Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not."

In John 21:18, Jesus was predicting two things:

(1) When Jesus' followers were young, they would organise themselves and do as they decided.

(2) But when Jesus' followers were old, they would ask for help and another would organise them and cause them to do what they had not previously done.

I interpret the words of Jesus in John 21:18 as meaning he was predicting that:

(1) Initially, Jesus' followers would organise themselves into different denominations* each of which would do as it decided, not as Jesus had instructed which was for them to follow Jesus' central instruction to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others. See also John 13:18-19 above and John 21:19 below.

(2) But later (after realising these mistakes), Jesus' followers would then ask for help and another would organise them and cause them to do what they had not previously done, namely to follow Jesus' central instruction to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others. See also John 21:19 below.

*Note: As stated, by "denominations" I mean all the churches, fellowships, bodies and similar organised groupings within Christianity whether or not they regard themselves as being a denomination. I therefore include in "denominations" both the Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church even though each regards itself as being "pre-denominational" and therefore not being a denomination.

........

John 21:19

"This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me."

In John 21:19, the author John was saying that the words of Jesus in John 21:18 were signifying by what death Jesus would glorify God and that, when Jesus had said these words, Jesus then said to Peter "Follow me".

I interpret the words of John in John 21:19 "This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God" as meaning: The words of Jesus in John 21:18 were signifying that, by the death (that is, by the dissolution) of all of today's Christian denominations* because they have not followed Jesus' central instruction to "love one another" meaning to love ALL others, Jesus would glorify God. See also John 13:18-19 above.

And I interpret the words of Jesus to Peter in John 21:19 "Follow me" as meaning: Peter, I want you and all others to follow my central instruction to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others.

*Note: As stated, by "denominations" I mean all the churches, fellowships, bodies and similar organised groupings within Christianity whether or not they regard themselves as being a denomination. I therefore include in "denominations" both the Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church even though each regards itself as being "pre-denominational" and therefore not being a denomination.

........

John 21:20

"Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?"

In John 21:20, the author John was saying that Peter then turned around and saw him John, whom Jesus loved, following behind. In relation to the words "which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?", see John 13:23-25 in Attachment A to this paper.

........

John 21:21

"Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?"

In John 21:21, the author John was saying that, when Peter saw him John, Peter then asked Jesus what should John do?

I interpret the words of John in John 21:21 as meaning: When Peter saw me John, Peter then asked Jesus what role Jesus wanted me to play (?) given that Jesus had appointed Peter (not me) to lead Jesus' followers.

........

John 21:22

"Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me."

In John 21:22, Jesus was replying to Peter's question in John 21:21 by saying that, if Jesus wanted John to wait until Jesus comes, what is that to Peter (?) and Peter should follow Jesus.

I interpret the words of Jesus in John 21:22 as meaning Jesus replied to Peter that: If Jesus wanted John (that is, John's recording of these matters* in the Gospel of John) to wait to be understood until Jesus comes (that is, until the words of Jesus in the Gospel of John in relation to these matters* can be understood), what concern should that be to Peter (?) and Peter and all others should follow Jesus' central instruction to "love one another", meaning to love ALL others.

In my view, John's recording of these matters* in the Gospel of John has waited until now to be understood when the words of Jesus in the Gospel of John in relation to these matters* can now be understood, as a result of: (a) The information in Papers #2 and #3 (see also Papers #4 and #5), (b) The brief explanation of these matters* in Paper #15, and (c) The more detailed explanation of these matters* in this paper.

*Note: By "these matters", I mean the matters that are dealt with in Paper #15 and this paper.

........

John 21:23

"Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?"

In John 21:23, the author John was saying that the words of Jesus in John 21:22 had resulted in an incorrect rumour circulating among Jesus' followers that he John would not die, and John was correcting the rumour by pointing out that in John 21:22 Jesus did not say to Peter that John would not die; what Jesus said was "If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?"

For my interpretation of these words of Jesus, see John 21:22 above.

........

John 21:24

"This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true."

These words by the author John are clear and do not require analysis or comments.
