The Last Supper is a description of the last meal Jesus Christ had with His disciples prior to His arrest and crucifixion on a Roman cross about 2,000 years ago. It contains many significant principles, and continues to be an important part of Christian lives throughout the world.
The Last Supper is described in three of the four New Testament Gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke. “And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” He took the cup and gave it to them. “This is my blood, the blood of the new covenant, to be poured out in behalf of many.” That night, without wariness or regret, he gave himself in love to his Father and his disciples. As Savior and Redeemer, He gave Himself unhesitatingly for the life of the world. (Luke 22:19)
