This does not look like the famous Michael Angelo's "Last Supper", however, this is probably a more accurate portrayal of what it might have looked like. The image of the last supper was meant to show the reactions of the disciples as well as Jesus as He shares that someone will betray Him. Place yourself in the scene... You've been with Jesus for three years now, walking, talking, joking, crying, healing and dealing with demons face to face. He has been your leader and guide, your comfort, strength, provider and security. Now He tells you that one of you are going to betray Him. WHAT? Who? The truth is if we think about it we all betray Him on a daily basis. We profess Him as Lord yet live our lives as if He is second to us. Look at His face. His face is sorrowful. He knows and now we know as well who will betray Him to death and yet Jesus washes the feet of His betrayer. ALL of this didn't matter to Jesus. He knew He was about to be handed over to be crucified, yet He went through it willingly because He knew this is what had to be done. Jesus the ONLY hope for mankind, was the spotless (sinless) lamb to be sacrificed once and for all for the sins of the world. Being Passion Week, tonight is the night of the Last Supper and throughout the night He will be handed over, beaten and battered and tomorrow He dies. As we go about our day, remember the image but instead of being the Last Supper see it as the First Supper that will lead us into eternity. God bless you my friends!!
