Two thousand and seventeen years ago, preparations were being made
to celebrate Passover. Today, many Jewish families also are celebrating
this traditional holiday, an unbroken chain actually going back
more than 3000 years.
Jesus wanted to celebrate one last Passover with his disciples and
made arrangements to meet together the final Thursday of his life.
It ended up being the night he was betrayed.
It also was the night Jesus instituted what we now know as
“The Lords Supper ” or “Holy Communion”. Jesus didn’t want to
leave us without this meaningful sacrament.
