Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday

It is Holy Thursday. Spending time today reflecting on that day and evening before the Crucifixion of our Master Jesus, the Messiah.

It is all good news. Our Father has a great goal for us. Jesus knew it and carried it out so that we can be in a right relationship with God.

During the meal, Jesus took and blessed the bread, broke it, and gave it to his disciples: 

Take, eat. This is my body.

Taking the cup and thanking God, he gave it to them: 

Drink this, all of you. This is my blood, God’s new covenant poured out for many people for the forgiveness of sins.

“I’ll not be drinking wine from this cup again until that new day when I’ll drink with you in the kingdom of my Father.”

They sang a hymn and went directly to Mount Olives.
