The Last Supper
Jesus had followers.
These followers were called apostles.
Jesus and his apostles were eating dinner.
Jesus knew it was for the last time.
Jesus knew what was going to happen but his apostles didn't.
At dinner, Jesus took some bread, gave thanks for it, and he broke it.
He gave it to his apostles and said, "This is my body."
Jesus asked his apostles to do this in memory of him.
After dinner was over he took the cup of wine.
He gave thanks and handed it to his apostles.
"Drink this. This is my blood which will be shed for you," Jesus said.
Jesus promised the apostles that all sins would be forgiven.
The apostles were confused.
They didn't know what to think.
Jesus said, "One of you sitting here at the table will betray me."
Peter said, "I would never do that!"
Jesus looked at him and said, "Before the rooster crows you will say, three times, that you don't know me."
What do you think ?
What did Jesus mean when he passed out the bread?
What did Jesus mean when he passed out the wine?
What did Jesus promise?
Who would betray him?
Do you think Peter really will say that he didn't know who Jesus was?
Write to me and tell me what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.
Can you think of a better prayer?
