The Last Supper

On the night before He was crucified, Jesus ate His last supper with His disciples.  This was not just any supper for it was not only the Passover meal, but in the course of eating the Passover feast, Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper (Luke 22:7-23).  In the celebration of Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread, the sons of Israel were to remember the great deliverance the LORD gave them from their enemies in Egypt.  We, the church, in the observation of the Lord’s Supper are to remember our Lord Jesus Christ.  He gave His body and shed His blood on the cross that we might be delivered from our sins.  Jesus was raised from the dead on the third day securing our eternal salvation.  Thanks be to God!
