John 6:48-51, Luke 22:14-20, John 13:1-11

Instructions for communion are rather simple compared to details given by Moses for the tabernacle.  In some ways Passover was like a family get together.  Christ wanted to share Passover with his disciples.  He shared the pending betrayal.  That produced a mood change.

Additional Comments:

  • Jesus' blood was applied to a different post; the cross. 

  • Foot washing should be viewed as more than just removing dust from a traveler's feet.  It is symbolic be a servant.
