I’m still playing in that water that Jesus used to wash feet with in last week’s story.
There’s food in this story?
It’s about a supper?
Bring it on! I’m all ears!
Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed.
Lamb? They’re gonna have lamb!?
I’m eating with them.
Yes, I’m listening.
Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.”
Hey Peter – John, make sure to save a place for me!
“Where do you want us to prepare for it?” they asked.
Jesus replied, “As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters, and say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher asks: Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’ He will show you a large upper room, all furnished. Make preparations there.”
They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.
I’d better go help. They might need someone to clean up the floor when things get dropped.
I’ll listen! I’ll listen!
When the hour came, Jesus and His apostles reclined at the table. And He said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God.”
If Jesus is going to leave His food and not eat it, I’ll eat it for Him.
Yes, I’m listening.
After taking the cup, Jesus gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among you. For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.
What do you mean, I can’t have any of that fruit of the vine stuff that Jesus doesn’t drink?
Dogs can’t have grapes?
Jesus didn’t say anything about grapes.
And Jesus 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.”
Bread’s alright, but could you pass over that lamb?
In the same way, after the supper He took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.”
Okay, now Jesus is pouring that stuff out.
Can I drink it if it falls on the floor?

Quick, eat all the food! Not the wine though, you might feel a bit dizzy if you drunk that!

Pigs, I’m hoping everybody will turn the other way so I can sneak all the food off the table.

Hope you’re lucky in your quest!

I think having a little bit of both couldn’t harm! Of course it would help if there was some fish involved…

Marina, fish sounds good. I’ll have to get Jesus to add to His menu.

Mom saw this painting at “Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie” in Italy almost 20 years ago which was so amazing. I’ll keep this story in mind whenever I eat bread and drink wine! 🙂

Kevin, my person says she thinks it would be really cool to see the actual painting. Me, I’m still waiting for whatever they drop from the table.
