{The Last Supper}
By: Taylor Dunlevie

The story begins on the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread or the Passover...

Jesus had specific instructions of what he wanted for this meal and sent two of his disciples to prepare the meal

That evening Jesus sat down at the table with the 12 apostles to eat his final meal before going to the cross. As they dined together, he told the twelve that one of them would soon betray him.

Jesus explained that even though he knew he would die as the Scriptures foretold, his betrayer's fate would be terrible: "Far better for him if he had never been born" [Matthew 26:24

Then Jesus took the bread and the wine and asked his Father to bless it.

He broke the bread into pieces, giving it to his disciples and said, "This is my body, given for you. Do this in remembrance of me." [Luke 22:19]

And then he took the cup of wine, sharing it with his disciples and said, "This wine is the token of God's new covenant to save you" [Luke 22:20-30]

He told all of them, "I will not drink wine again until the day I drink it new with you in my Father's Kingdom." [Matthew 26:29]

Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olive.
