The Last Supper on the Night Before Jesus Died
On the night before he died, Jesus celebrated the Passover (the Feast of Unleavened Bread). This solid bronze cross depicts this Last Supper vividly: Jesus blesses the bread and cup, the disciples gaze on with rapt attention, the Holy Spirit hovers over Jesus, and a rooster stands ominously in the foreground—a sign of Peter’s coming denial of Jesus (John 13:31-38). But which disciple is Judas Iscariot, the one who will betray him? Fourth from the right, almost hidden in the midst of the disciples, Judas sits clutching the thirty pieces of silver, the price for his betrayal. This was a night filled with tension, drama and foreboding.
