WHY did Jesus fold the napkin? ~ I’M COMING BACK!!!

Have you ever noticed this verse:

"…as well as the burial cloth that had been around Jesus’ head.

The cloth was folded up by itself, separate from the linen."
(John 20.7. – NIV)

When the Bible use a whole verse to tell us this
it has to be something important that are told us here, hasn’t it?

A little Jewish tradition to explain,
because the folded napkin has to do with the master and the servant to do
and all Jewish boys- at least at that time- knew the meaning of it.

When the servant set the table for his master, he made sure that  everything was exactly as the master wanted it.
During the meal the servant would wait, just out of sight, till his master was done eating.
When the master was done, he would rise, wipe his fingers, his mouth and clean his beard… and if:
1. he wad up the napkin and toss it on the table that meant "I’m finished" and the servant knew he could clean the table
2. he folded it and laid it next to his plate that meant "I’m coming back" and the servant wouldn’t dare to touch the table

"…as well as the burial cloth that had been around Jesus’ head.

The cloth was folded up by itself, separate from the linen."

do actually mean that Jesus says:
I’M COMING BACK!!!
