The meaning of the Last Supper.

Imagine that you have been following Jesus for three years. Then, one night during dinner, He takes bread and tells you to eat for “this is My body.” Then He takes the wine cup and tells you to drink it, “for this is My blood.” Such commands would be alarming and, on that night, the disciples had no clue of what He was talking about…at least until later.

The dinner was to celebrate the Passover, which got its name from when the Israelites were in captivity in Egypt and God sent plagues against the ruler, Pharaoh, in an effort to release the Israelites. The final plague would kill children. However, God told the Israelites to mark “the doorposts of their homes with ‘the blood of a spring lamb’ and those homes would be ‘passed over” and set free from death.”

On that night, Jesus was indicating to his disciples that He was the now “the lamb;” that through His coming sacrificial death, “eternal death” would “passed over” all who believed in Him.

Death will pass over! Think about that the next time you share the Lord’s Supper.

Matthew 26:26-29
