The Last Supper

On a Thursday evening, Jesus and His apostles met for the Passover Feast. Jesus noticed that one of His apostles, Judas, sat silently as if he had something to hide. Judas had collected money from the rulers of Jerusalem in order to lead them to Jesus.

Jesus then turned to his Judas and His apostles and said “truly I say to you that one of you will betray Me to My enemies”

Then at the door of the room, there was a bowl of water with a towel. Jesus took the bowl of water with the towel and washed His apostles’ feet.

Jesus told them “If I, your Lord, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash each other’s feet.”

As dinner went on Jesus  took a loaf of bread, broke it, and gave a piece to each one of His apostles. He then said, “Eat this, for this is My body which is broken for you”.

Next Jesus took a cup of wine and handed it to each of His apostles. He told them “Drink this, for this is My blood which is shed for you and for many”.

And finally at the end of the supper Jesus gave the apostles a new commandment to "love one another, even as I have loved you"
