The Disciples and Jesus

Jesus and his Disciples traveled for 3 years and taught the stories of The Bible. The twelve men followed and accepted Jesus. The Thursday before Passover Jesus invited his disciples to a dinner that would be remembered in history for thousands of years to come.

The Washing of the Feet

Before the men ate Jesus sat them all down and washed each of their feet. An unusual thing to do, especially the man considered "Messiah" to them. This represents cleanliness and a new beginning, Jesus knew he would be leaving the men to a fresh start and allowing them to know he would always be their for them even if not physically capable to do so.

The Presentation of The Eucharist

Jesus took the bread and gave it a blessing . He said, "Take, eat; this is my body." connecting the idea that the "bread" of eternal life was actually Jesus' body given up for us and our sins.

The Cup of Life

After the men ate the Eucharist. Jesus then picked up his cup and said,"Drink of it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of all sins." The men were shocked that Jesus was telling them that these Passover rituals were his actual body and blood. Before the men could drink the Blood of Christ, Jesus brought them out to the Mount of Olives. The cup was not consumed which was unusual after signing a hymn.

The New Covenant

The Last supper instituted the Eucharist and the New Covenant. The blood Jesus gave to the men established the unity that everyone could have with Jesus if they participated in the Eucharist. The disciples learned that Jesus himself was the sacrifice that established the Covenant between God and Israel.

Excellent Job, Kelly. You had a couple of typoes, but other than that, it's awesome! (i.e. remove accidental first title.)
