The Preparations for the Last Supper
The Passover was a celebration
of liberation from slavery in
Egypt. Moses had said an unblemished
Lamb should be sacrificed and then eaten.
When Jesus was here, lamb was sacrificed
In the temple of Jerusalem. Then meals
Took place in the homes of people who had
Gathered together for celebration.
Unleavened bread was also served because
The Israelites took that from Egypt.
He had His Disciples say to a man
they would have Passover at the man’s house.
Jesus knew that He was the Lamb who would
Later be sacrificed for our salvation.
