Why this Essay?

There is nothing more important to a Christian, whether Roman Catholic or Evangelical, than to become more and more like Jesus: He is the Example that God has given us. He teaches us how to live our lives and with what outlook.

To this effect, it is imperative to study carefully the Gospels as they are our only prime sources about His teaching and His life on earth.

The Gospel texts are common to all Christians. And all English speaking Christians not only accept the authority of the Greek New Testament but also consider the King James Bible as one of its faithful English translations. So they can work together from this translation to learn how to become more and more like Jesus our Lord, and so to become more and more a Christian.

This is what I am trying to do from my Roman Catholic background, my own theological studies, my experiences with Pentecostalism and my life as a husband, a father and a teacher.

I have already examined quite a few excerpts of the Gospels in my essay Life, Love and Law as well as in Christians and Scripture but had to leave many important Gospel texts for another time.

What I want to do in this short essay is to examine a crucial excerpt found only in John's Gospel, and more precisely in his Chapters 13 to 17, a passage which refers to events that took place on the eve of Jesus' death between His last meal with His disciples and His arrival in the garden where He was arrested.
