The Last Supper
Scripture: Mark 14:12-25 (NRSV)
The Jewish Passover remembered two things: The Hebrews’ deliverance from slavery in Egypt and the hope of a coming Messiah who would gather Israel into one nation again. Jesus was doing something radical with the Lord’s Supper in the Upper Room—he was comparing himself to the Passover lamb that would be sacrificed. And he was letting his disciples know that just as God delivered Israel from Pharaoh, so would Jesus deliver the world from their bondage to sin by his death on the cross. He was the Messiah the Jewish people had been waiting for. For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son.
