The day before Good Friday is called “Maundy Thursday,” so-called from the Latin “dies manda’ti” (the day of Christ’s great mandate). That day, after He had washed His disciples’ feet, He said, “So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other” (John 13:34, NLT).
