Event Title

P-03 An Evaluation of Foot-washing as Practiced in the Seventh-day Adventist Church

Start Date

Description

This project studies theological and historical connections and correlations between foot-washing and the Lord’s Supper. The goal is to explore the biblical basis for the Seventh-Day Adventist practice of the communion ceremony. It is hard to infer an obvious connection because both events are never presented together. However, upon a thorough exegesis of the text, theological connections involving symbolism of Christ’s death, a clear mandate to perform foot-washing, as well as a consistency in the timeline unite both events. So far this study has proven that foot-washing is a practice based upon biblical mandate rather than Christian tradition.
