Sammanfattning

In this paper I argue that the author of John singled out the feet in his description of the anointing of Jesus because he wanted to portray Jesus as a serving, suffering, and dying Anointed One of the Lord, and because he wanted to emphasize the notion that the lowly ones of God’s people also would be anointed with the Holy Spirit. In order to support this conclusion I argue that (1) the anointing of Jesus by Mary confirms that he is God’s Anointed One as a self-sacrificing servant; that (2) the anointing of Jesus by God with the Spirit provides for a Spirit-anointing that will be given to all believers, including them of low social status; and that (3) it was a widely spread notion that the human body represents a community and that its feet represent servants.
