The Last Supper

On the day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples asked Jesus where he wants them to make preparations for him to eat the passover. Then Jesus said to tell a certain man in the city that his time is near. So the disciples went on, and did that. They also went to go prepare for Pentecost.

Later that night, Jesus sits at the table with the twelve apostles. Jesus says that he knows one of them will betray him. They felt sad when he said that. The one who will betray him will dip his hand in a bowl. It would be better if the man born wasn't even born.

Judas asked if it would be him who the was the betrayal. Jesus said that he said so.

Jesus took the praise, and gave thanks. And then he broke it and gave it to all his disciples and said, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Matthew 26: 26.

He gave thanks and then took the cup. He told them to drink from it, and that this is his blood. It is the covenant, and was poured out for the forgiveness of sins. He won't drink the wine of the vine until the day he drink it with us, in his Father's kingdom.

Then they sung a hymn, and went out to the Mount of Olives. From that night, they believed that Jesus was telling the truth, and that the bread and wine was him. And even today, it is still served at mass, and we believe that the bread and wine really is Jesus.

Good job, Bri. I like your images. A couple of errors, just for your knowledge: the House where they had the Last Supper (called the Cenacle now) was also the place where Pentecost occurred, but they didn't even know Pent was going to happen, so they weren't preparing for it. Also, they didn't believe that night. They didn't believe until Jesus came to them on Easter Sunday resurrected! They were probably scared, bewildered, depressed, from his arrest until Easter Sunday. That's why we mourn on Good Friday and no mass is celebrated on Saturday Morning. It's on Easter when the JOY is realized!!! Allelujah he is risen! :)
