Jesus sent two of his disciples, telling them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him. (Men did not carry water, only women did this job.)
“He will show you a large room upstairs, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there.” (This must have been pre-arranged!)
When evening came, Jesus arrived with the Twelve. While they were reclining at the table (The pictures we see of the Last upper with Jesus in the middle of the table, are quite accurate.)
He said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me—one who is eating with me.” (What an interesting dinner table topic!)
“It is one of the Twelve,” he replied, “one who dips bread into the bowl with me. The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.” (Judas knew full well that he was the guilty one, yet in spite of this warning, continued on with his plot.
Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take it; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it. Jesus intended that they would recognize his as the Passover lamb required.)
Do you recognize that?
