Bonus Reading, Luke

The Last Supper      

Today's reading describes the iconic Last Supper that Jesus shared with his disciples.  While religious leaders were plotting against him, Jesus planned to celebrate Passover with his disciples.  During that meal, he transformed its meaning for his followers.  The bread and the wine became symbolic of his body and blood, given for them as a sign of a new covenant.

Read Luke 22:1-23  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
