This Last Supper Cross is a simple but powerful depiction of the Last Supper. This is an excellent gift for a first communion or an ordination. Whether you give this cross to children receiving their first communion or to a newly ordained priest or minister, you can be confident that your gift to them has “Old World” workmanship, is made of solid bronze, and radiates authentic artistic quality.
Human History’s Most Fateful Evening
Measuring 3.25 inches high and 2.75 inches wide, the Last Supper Cross has an eyelet on top to allow for easy hanging on the wall and for use as a pectoral cross in liturgical celebrations. This cross was conceived and cast in a foundry in Germany. Human history’s most fateful evening – the Last supper in the Upper Room on the night before Jesus died – is depicted powerfully on this solid bronze cross.
The Last Supper in the Upper Room
Jesus celebrated the Feast of Unleavened Bread (the Passover) one last time in an “upper room” (Luke 22:12) on the night before he died. This solid bronze cross captures the events of that fateful evening most compactly and vividly: Jesus blesses the bread and cup, eleven of the disciples gaze on with rapt attention, and (in the bottom right corner of the cross) the twelfth disciple, Judas Iscariot, clutches his bag of money (thirty silver pieces – blood money to betray Jesus) and looks way away in rejection of Jesus. This is indeed a night filled with drama, tension and foreboding!
