    1. Hi, thanks for asking! The custom of footwashing originated in the ancient east. An example of footwashing in the Old Testament Bible is found in the account of Abraham receiving three angels. His words of welcome were, “Please let a little water be brought, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree.” (Gen 18:4). This custom was prevalent in Jesus’ times. We learn from John the Baptist telling the people that he was unworthy even to untie the straps of the Lord’s sandals (Lk 3:16). During the time of the apostles, the washing of the saints’ feet by elderly widows was deemed a virtuous service (1 Tim 5:10). The next important question is why do we still conduct footwashing?
