As we prepare for Holy Week and, specifically, Maudy Thursday, that night when Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper in the Upper Room, we have an opportunity to reach back and see the deeply historic significance of the meal.
On Wednesday, April 12, during Holy Week, we will host “Messiah in the Passover,” a seder meal that will re-enact the Passover meal and will include references to how the meal’s symbols take on fuller meaning with Jesus’ redemption.
The Last Supper was actually part of a celebration during the Jewish festival of Passover. Knowing that He would be put to death in a few hours, Jesus told His disciples, “I eagerly desired to celebrate this Passover with you before I suffer” (Luke 22:15). At this celebration, He took elements of the Passover (the unleavened bread and the cup) and identified them as His body and blood, symbolizing His death.
