Bible story: The Last Supper

Creative activities based on the Bible story of The Last Supper

The Bible story of the last Passover, as recorded in Matthew 26, Mark 14, Luke 22, and John 13-17, describes Jesus' final meal with his disciples before his arrest, trial, and crucifixion. During this meal, Jesus breaks bread and shares wine with his disciples, telling them that the bread represents his body and the wine represents his blood. He predicts that one of his disciples will betray him, and that Peter will deny knowing him.

Jesus also uses this opportunity to give his disciples new commandments, to love one another as he has loved them, and to serve each other. He predicts his death and resurrection, and prays for his disciples. This powerful story is a significant event in the Christian faith, as it serves as a reminder of Jesus' sacrifice for humanity and his message of love and service.
