  1. AMEN. It boggles my mind that denominations refuse to keep the Lord’s Supper every Sunday, claiming it would become too “common” if they did. This is the main reason we are to meet on Sundays. We can sing, pray, read scriptures and discuss Jesus any day of the week. But Sunday is the day of the Lord’s Supper. In Acts, it says they met on THE first day of the week TO break bread. When the Jews were told to remember THE Sabbath day to keep it holy, they didn’t say “the” meant monthly, quarterly, or yearly. THE meant every. I think Jesus must weep when we neglect what he went through in the most important event in the history of humankind.

  2. We need to remind ourselves of that sacrifice. You’re right–no one made Him do it. No one forced His hand. He went to the horror of Good Friday out of love for us. And to ignore what that cost Him is just wrong. I didn’t come by this salvation through a clean-cut, easy-to-stomach plan. I never want to forget what He paid for me to be whole.

  3. A couple of years ago, when I attended a seder dinner at our church, as part of the dinner there was a reenactment of the last supper. Someone there had studied exactly where the apostles were sitting around the floor of this meal (well, reclining around the food on cushions). The study was based on their interactions as told in the gospels.

    Apparently Peter, who would have ordinarily have had the best seat, humbled himself and sat in the place of least importance farthest away and across from Jesus. As Jesus reclined on his side, John sat in front of him (leaning into his chest). The one who sat behind him at his back, in his most vulnerable position, was Judas. I thought that was quite interesting. Accurate? Who knows?
