And if a Gentile Christian undertakes to keep any part of the law, He then becomes guilty of the whole law. And our reader can not help but see and Unow that feet washing was first given to Aaron and the priestly body and it was to be practiced when thev went into the Tabernacle, to offer up an offering. And .vou will also notice that it wa not for the Jews as a whole; but just for the priests. That is why Christ was ub in this upper room with his twelve, alone and no other disciple with him, for it as just for the priests, as it is written. Kor Aaron and his sons shall wmh their hsndi and their feet thereat: When tliejgo into Tko tabernacle of tha congregation tbey shall wash with water that they die not; or when they come near to the alter to minister to burn offering made by fire nnto tho Lord: Ex. 30 - 1920 Ir. reading these scriptures we will hav e to see that the ordinan ce of f"Ct washing was given, for the priesthood alone, and those twelve was chosen of Christ and ordained by him to fill the offi e of pries s as it is written.
