Virtues Enquiry using the biblical text from John 13: 1-15 – Jesus washes his disciples’ feet
The excerpt from the Christian Bible when Jesus washes the disciples’ feet (John 13: 1-15) and Wintershall’s dramatised clips of scenes from The Life of Christ’ production provide the theological stimulus to a Virtues Enquiry on the shared human virtue of Humility.
Humility is described in the Bible as one of nine fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5) The fruits of the spirit in their biblical context are Christ-like qualities aspired to by followers of Jesus, and enabled by faith in Jesus and the transforming work of the Holy spirit.
