The final Passover meal between Jesus and his 11 apostles. There is a lot to this backstory about this event. While time fails me to go into full and vivid detail about it, may I suggest that you visit the official website of Jehovah’s Witnesses at http://www.jw.org, and if you wish, visit our online library at http://www.wol.jw.org and explore for yourself a great deal of knowledge of this special event.
For those of you are biblically inclined, or are very familiar with theology, these symbols-the bread and the wine-represent the flesh and the blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ. There were many prophecies and events that lead to this precious occasion according to the scriptures. That said, Jesus’ sacrifice paid the ransom for mankind to be free from Adamic sin. As the account states from 1 Corinthians 15:45; “”The first man Adam became a living person.” The last Adam-Jesus Christ-became a life-giving spirit.”
The sacrifice of Jesus was necessary to make up for what Adam had taken from us-life everlasting on a Paradise Earth. Paul mentioned earlier in his letter to the Corinthians at 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 as quoted from the Gospel accounts at Matthew 26:26, 27 and Mark 14:22, 23; “For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night on which he was going to be betrayed took a loaf, and after giving thanks, he broke it and said: “This means my body, which is in your behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me.” He did the same with the cup also, after they had the evening meal, saying: “This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood. Keep doing this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For whenever you eat this loaf and drink this cup, you keep proclaiming the death of the Lord, until he comes.”
