The Last Supper
Transcript of The Last Supper
final meal Jesus and his 12 apostles shared before his arrest and crucifixion. Practiced today as The Lord's Supper, Communion, or Sacrament Described in 3 of the 4 Gospels Matthew, Mark, & Luke Symbolism In Exodus, the blood of the Passover lamb was painted on the door frames, causing the plague of the firstborn to pass over their houses sparing the firstborn sons from death.
The Last Supper showed Jesus' disciples he was about to become the Passover Lamb of God. His blood would open the door to freedom. His followers would exchange slavery to sin and death for eternal life in God's Kingdom. 1. The bread and the wine become the actual body and blood of Christ.
The Catholic term for this is Transubstantiation.
2. The bread and the wine are unchanged elements, but Christ's presence by faith is made spiritually real in and through them.
3. The bread and the wine are unchanged elements, used as symbols, representing Christ's body and blood, in remembrance of his enduring sacrifice. Blood & Wine during Communion: 3 Main Christian views Jesus Predicts Betrayal While they were eating, he said, 'I tell you the truth, one of you will betray me.'
'One of you who has just eaten from this bowl with me will betray me.' Cultural Influence Pop Culture... http://culturepopped.blogspot.com/2007/04/suddenly-last-supper.html Andy Warhol's Last Supper
"Works like Last Supper (Dove) bring together brand name products from the supermarket and the sacramental imagery of the church, asserting that modern life and faith are neither separate nor contradictory. Each makes the other more real and meaningful. The dove, descending from above Christ like a halo, represents the Holy Spirit; the General Electric sign (with its own halo) is a symbol of the Son. It doesn't take much imagination to connect GE with the light of the world, but there is an even subtler meaning to this sign: GE's slogan, "We bring good things to life," points to the resurrection and eternal life." "Super Model's Last Supper" Described as a
historical account. The significance of 'communion' is not described until Acts. During The Last Supper, the disciples did not understand what Jesus was doing. They were busy thinking about the identity of the betrayer, their own sadness, and who was the greatest among them. Not a fabulous party... Although depicted in paintings, it was not an extravagant meal.
They sat on the floor or cushions.
Likely to have sat in a square, rather than the straight line seen in Davinci's painting. As they were eating, Jesus took some bread and blessed it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples saying, 'Take this and eat it, for this is my body.' And he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. He gave it to them and said, 'Each of you drink from it, for this is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice to the forgiveness of sins of many. Mark my words - I will not drink wine again until the day I drink it new with you in my Father's Kingdom.' "The Body" "The blood" The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci The person directly to Jesus' right is the most discussed. It is said to be either Mary Magdalene as well as John.
Peter, sitting 2 from Jesus' right, is slicing across her throat with his hand.
Further along the table, a disembodied hand is about to thrust a knife into the stomach of one of the disciples.
On the other side of Jesus, a disciple is thrusting his finger into the face of Jesus, in what has become recognised in the paintings of Leonardo as 'the John sign' representing John the Baptist. Before... 2 days before the Passover, the chief priests and elders gathered in the palace of the high priest and plotted to kill Jesus.
A woman from Bethany washed Jesus' feet with expensive perfumes.
Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went to the forementioned chief priests and asked them, "What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?"
Judas would receive 30 silver coins. Cause & Effect Judas, the apostle that betrayed Jesus for 30 silver coins, was filled with remorse and threw the money into the temple of the chief priests, and left to hang himself. Unlike Baptism, which is a one time event, Communion is a practice that is meant to be observed over and over throughout the life of a Christian. It is a holy time of worship when we corporately come together as one body to remember and celebrate what Christ did for us. The textbook says... Celebrating Passover "was not only celebrating the historic protection provided by God for those who killed the lamb and spread the blood on their doorsteps so that the angel of death would pass by Jesus was also celebrating becoming himself the lamb that would have been sacrificed on Passover." Eucharist Greek for "giving thanks" Jesus provides a very important principle for living a Christian life: the greatest are those who serve others, not those who expect to be served (Luke 22:26). Finally, Jesus provides hope to his followers: "and I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me, so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel" (Luke 22:29-30). Although Judas already decided to betray Jesus, he still participated in the eating of the bread and wine The Bible says... After Jesus & the apostles go to the Mount of Olives, where Jesus prays in the Garden of Gethsemane.
Jesus is arrested
Judas hangs himself because of his betrayal of Jesus.
Peter denies knowing Jesus three times before the rooster crows that morning. & then... "His life is a feast for the poor and for sinners. It must be the same for those who receive the Lord's body and blood. We become what we receive in this meal and we imitate Jesus in his saving works, his healing words, and his gestures of humble service. From the Eucharist must flow a certain style of communitarian life, a genuine care for our neighbors, and for strangers." The Eucharist Teaches Us...
