Luke 22:14-20 (NCV) When the time came, Jesus and the apostles were sitting at the table. He said to them, “I wanted very much to eat this Passover meal with you before I suffer. I will not eat another Passover meal until it is given its true meaning
Luke 22:14-20 (NCV) in the kingdom of God.” Then Jesus took a cup, gave thanks, and said, “Take this cup and share it among yourselves. I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until God's kingdom comes.”
Luke 22:14-20 (NCV) Then Jesus took some bread, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to the apostles, saying, “This is my body, which I am giving for you. Do this to remember me.”
Luke 22:14-20 (NCV) In the same way, after supper, Jesus took the cup and said, “This cup is the new covenant that God makes with his people. This new covenant begins with my blood which is poured out for you.”

Exodus 6:6-7 (NIV) I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.’”

The Story of The Last Supper We come to the table remembering we were slaves to sin (living for ourselves) and leave the table free from sin as we choose by grace to follow our Savior.
The Last Supper Points us to the cross (Passover = freedom) Invites us to live our life on new terms (disciple of Jesus) Reminds us to tell and re-tell the story of Jesus
1 Corinthians 11:23-26 (NIV) The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
1 Corinthians 11:23-26 (NIV) In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
