Abstract: "The son of man came not to be served but to serve" (Mk 10,45). Jesus himself gave us an example of authentic diakonia. By his baptism in the river Jordan by John the Baptist he descended into the mud of the river, he became misery for us. At the last supper he himself washed the feet of the apostles. He taught the great parable of diakonia in the story of the Good Samaritan. Therefore Jesus true God and true man lived and taught this diakonia.
