Passover Supper

This is my body which has been given up for you; the Passover supper

The Last Supper

Jesus sat down to his last meal with his disciples. The Passover Supper was an emotional meal. The bread represented his body and the drink represented his blood. His shed blood would usher in a new covenant, or promise, that we are no longer under the law. Salvation comes on through Jesus.

A New Covenant

14 And when the hour came, he reclined at table, and the apostles with him. 15 And he said to them, “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. 16 For I tell you I will not eat it[b] until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” 17 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he said, “Take this, and divide it among yourselves.18 For I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” 19 And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 20 And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.
