A-Z: Famous stories from the Bible: The Lord's Supper


On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Jesusdisciples asked him where they would all be celebrating the Passover. He sent them to a certain house in Last supperthe city of Jerusalem and told them to tell the householder that Jesus needed to use his house for the Feast. The disciples did this, and prepared the meal. During the meal, Jesus said,

‘One of you is going to betray me to my enemies.’

They were all shocked but Jesus said,

‘I tell you – one of you who has dipped his hand into this bowl with me will betray me.’

Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said,

‘Surely it’s not me, Rabbi?’

Jesus answered,

‘It is you, as you say.’

Then he took the bread, blessed it and broke it into pieces.

‘Take and eat,’ he said. ‘This is my body.’

He did the same with the wine, inviting them to drink and telling them that this was his blood which would be shed for the forgiveness of sins. Then they sang a hymn together before going to the Mount of Olives.
