3 Jesus knew that the Father had given everything into His hands, that He had come from God, and that He was going back to God.4 So He got up from supper, laid aside His robe, took a towel, and tied it around Himself.
So He got up and served His friends.
Knowing that He had everything in His hands, that He could do anything He wanted to do, that anything He commanded would be done, He choose to serve.
Knowing that He was divine, from God, holy, blameless, righteous and Lord, He choose to serve.
Knowing that He was going back to God to be back where He belonged, to where He had been for eternity past, to His home, He spent His last moments of freedom here with us serving His friends.
He chose the Cross.
