The Last Supper (Matt 26: 17-30, Mk 14: 12-16, Luke 22: 14-20, John 13: 1-12)
On the first day of the unleavened bread, which was also the day of the Passover sacrifice. The disciples asked Jesus where he would like them to make preparation for them to eat the Passover. Jesus directed them to a certain house to inform the landlord that the master would like to have the Passover in his house. He showed them the upper room. There, they made preparation with unleavened bread, a year-old lamb without any defect, bitter herbs and wine.
Unleavened bread is any of a wide variety of bread which is prepared without using rising agents such as yeast. Unleavened bread is generally flat bread;
When the evening came, Jesus disclosed to his disciples his betrayer and the punishment afterwards.
At the last supper table, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it and gave it to the disciples and said:
“Take, eat, this is my body
likewise, Jesus took the cup, gave thanks and
gave it to them and said:
“Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood
of the new covenant which is poured out
for many for the forgiveness of sins”.
The last supper is widely celebrated among Christians today as Holy communion or the Eucharist.
