Passover; Last Supper
Te events of the Last Supper are critical as it is the basis for what is commonly known as the Lord’s Supper or Communion. Te Apostle Paul considers this meal to be important as he makes direct reference to the words spoken by Jesus at the table, which most Christians today hear regularly. (1 Cor. 11:23–25)...
We will attempt to answer the question, “What does the first-century Jewish background of the Passover holiday contribute to our understanding of what Jesus did with His disciples at this evidently special meal?” Specifically, we will need to establish if a Passover or Passover-like meal took place, what can be known about the way in which it was celebrated, and how Jesus transformed this celebration by His words and actions.
