The Last Supper
This is the final meal Jesus eats with his disciples, his companions, where he prepares them for what is coming. This scene was made famous in the painting by Leonardo da Vinci in the late 15th century, one of the most studied in the world, chocked with suspense, tragedy and hope. The Passover meal looked back to the liberation of Israel, but Jesus transforms it into the Lord’s Supper as fulfillment draws near. The disciples (and soon the whole church) receive the wonderful gift of communion with Jesus.
