Bible Study from the beginning:

Care to continue our Tell Me the Story of Jesus adventure? Let's begin, shall we? At this point, we're still in that Holy Time known as the Passover Week and we are looking into the four day period between the time when Jesus entered Jerusalem and His death. But, before we begin the Last Supper Bible study, I want to share a story that Jesus said was to be shared every time the Gospel was preached. It is the story of Mary who anointed the feet of Jesus at the house of Simon:

Matthew 26:13

Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this Gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.

Luke 7:36-50

36 And one of the Pharisees desired Him that He would eat with him. And He went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat.
37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,
38 And stood at His feet behind Him weeping, and began to wash His feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed His feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden Him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if He were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth Him: for she is a sinner.
40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.
41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?

43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And He said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
44 And He turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.
45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.
47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.

48 And He said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
49 And they that sat at meat with Him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?
50 And He said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

Now, we will take a little story of the Last Supper of Jesus Christ field trip ... Who is this Mary in the story above? There are a few women with the name Mary mentioned as having something to do with Jesus. Mary, the Mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Mary the sister of Martha which were sisters of Lazarus whom Jesus brought back from the dead, Mary the wife of Cleophas, Mary the mother of James and Joses ... Most people believe it to be Mary Magdalene that Jesus was referring to when He said to tell her story every time the Gospel was preached. In fact the movie "Jesus of Nazareth" portrays it as being Mary Magdalene.

Well unless Mary the sister of Lazarus was also Mary Magdalene, someone has some explaining to do: John 11:1-2 ... Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

Some do believe that they are one in the same while others dispute this. I do not seek to debate scripture but rather to share this Truth ... Since Jesus made it clear that this woman was to be remembered when the Gospel was told and John makes it clear that it was Mary the sister of Martha and Lazarus .... We should make it clear that it was Mary, the sister to Martha and Lazarus that did this act that Jesus felt should be a memorial to her.

Back to the Last Supper Bible study sharing the Last Supper of Jesus Christ story ... During that time, Satan entered into Judas and he went to the chief priests and asked them, What will you give me if I turn Jesus over to you? The chief priests were happy about this, and they promised Judas thirty pieces of silver. This was foretold in scripture:

Zechariah 11:12

And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.

From then on, Judas waited for the opportunity to betray Jesus without people knowing.

The Last Supper of Jesus Christ nears. On the first day of the feast of unleavened bread, the disciples came to Jesus asking Him where He wanted to eat the Passover. Jesus sent Peter and John saying, Go into the city and you'll meet a man holding a pitcher of water. Follow him, and wherever he goes in, say to the owner of the house, The Master says, Where is the guestroom where I'll eat the Passover with my disciples? He'll show you a large upper room furnished and prepared. That's where you'll make ready for us. (That is awesome, is it not?)

It is time for the Last Supper Bible study to share some very sad events that occurred at the Last Supper of Jesus Christ ... In the evening, Jesus arrived with the twelve Apostles. Jesus said, Truly I say to you, that one of you will betray me. Understandably, the Apostles were very upset and they each began to say to Him, Lord, is it me? Jesus answered, One of you who is at this table, will betray me. The Son of man will go, in the plan of God, but woe to the man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would be better for that man if he hadn't been born.

Then Judas asked, Master, is it me? And Jesus said to him, You said it. Now, you may think that Judas was mocking by asking Jesus if it was him, I mean, after all, he already made the deal to hand Jesus over, how could he not know? But don't forget, the devil was working through Judas. It was the devil conspiring with the chief priests, not Judas.

Let us take another Last Supper Bible study field trip ... Remember before in our Tell Me the Story of Jesus journey, the blind man who was blind from birth and Jesus said that the reason he was blind was for the glory that God was given the moment he was healed. Likewise, there was a reason for Judas doing what he did. It's easy to look on Judas scornfully, but don't forget, his role was necessary for our salvation. If Jesus hadn't died for our sins, where would we be? Perhaps Judas didn't remember making the deal because while the devil worked through Judas, it was the devil's actions, therefore, he asked Jesus, Is it me?

We have discovered that within the Last Supper Bible study that there was no reaction from the other 11 when Jesus said that Judas would betray Him. God was still keeping the meaning of some things hidden from them who were dining at the Last Supper of Jesus Christ.

As the Last Supper of Jesus Christ began, Jesus took bread, He blessed it, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples saying, Take this and eat, this is my body which is given up for you. Do this in remembrance of me. When supper was ended, Jesus took the cup and gave thanks. He gave it to His disciples, saying, Take and drink all of it, because this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for you and for many so their sins may be forgiven. But I won't drink of the fruit of the vine again until the day when I drink it new with you in my Father's Kingdom.

You're the ones who have abided with me in my temptations, and I appoint to you a kingdom, as my Father has appointed to me, that you may eat and drink at my table in my Kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. (Remember what Jesus said here, because we'll be discussing it further later on.)

Prepare for the Last Supper Bible study blessing ... Jesus left the table and poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and wipe them with a towel. When it was Simon Peter's turn, Peter said, Lord, do you intend to wash my feet? This just made no sense to any of them. You can imagine, the awkward feeling that they all had, especially after Mary anointed Jesus' feet not long before. Jesus was the Messiah, the King, they had to be thinking that they should be the ones washing His feet.

Jesus answered Peter, You don't realize what I'm doing now but you'll understand later. Peter said, I'll never allow you to wash my feet. But Jesus replied, If I don't wash your feet, you have nothing to do with me. Peter said, Lord, wash not only my feet, but also my hands and my head. Then Jesus said, He that is washed, needs only to wash his feet and is clean every bit, and you are clean, except for one at the Last Supper of Jesus Christ (referring to Judas).

After that, Jesus said, Do you realize what I've done to you? You call me Master and Lord, and that, I am. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet, you too, should wash one another's feet. I've given you an example, that you should do as I've done to you.

Then Jesus said, Most assuredly, one of you will betray me. (Can you imagine the confusion at the Last Supper of Jesus Christ table?) The disciples weren't sure who He was talking about. John was leaning on Jesus and Peter motioned to John to ask who Jesus meant. So John asked, Lord, who is it? Jesus answered, It's the one who I give the bread to after I've dipped it. Jesus gave it to Judas and after that, Satan entered into him. Then Jesus said to him, What you're going to do, do quickly.

Pssssssst ... A Last Supper Bible study tidbit ... None of the others knew why Jesus said this to Judas. They thought that because Judas took care of the money, that Jesus told him to go buy the things that they needed for the feast or that he should give something to the poor. After Judas received the dipped bread, it was nighttime and he went out. After he was gone, Jesus said, Little children, I'll only be with you a little longer.

You'll look for me and as I told the Jewish people, Where I go, you can't come, so now I give you a new commandment. Love one another as I have loved you. By this, all men will know that you're my disciples, if you have love for one another. Where I go, you can't follow me now, but you'll follow me later.

We see that in the Last Supper Bible study story that Jesus had dropped a serious bomb on them which they just could not conceive or even understand. We understand it now, because we have hindsight, but imagine the chaos at the Last Supper of Jesus Christ ... Peter said to Jesus, Lord, why can't I follow you now? I'll lay down my life for your sake.

The Lord answered him, Simon, Simon, the devil wanted to take you so he could sift you like wheat, but I've prayed for you that your faith won't falter, and when you're converted, strengthen your brothers. Peter said, Lord, I'm ready to go with you, both into prison and to death. Jesus replied, Peter, the rooster shall not crow this day, until you deny three times that you know me.

But, Peter spoke even more emphatically, If I should die with you, I won't deny you in any way. All the others said the same. But, Jesus said, All of you will be offended because of me this night, for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad (Zechariah 13:7). Every man will go home and leave me alone, but I'm not alone, because the Father is with me. After I'm risen again, I'll go ahead of you into Galilee.

Another Last Supper Bible study blessing ... Jesus then said, Don't be worried. You believe in God, believe in me too. In my Father's house are many mansions. If it weren't so, I would've told you. I'm going to prepare a place for you. And If I go and prepare a place for you, I'll come again and get you, so you can be with me there too, and where I go, you'll understand and you'll know the way.

Thomas said, Lord, we don't know where you're going, how can we know the way? Jesus said, I am the way, the Truth and the life. No man comes to the Father, except through me. If you knew me, you should have known my Father too, and from now on, you know Him, and have seen Him. Philip said, Lord, show us the Father, and it'll satisfy us.

Jesus said, Have I been with you this long, and you still don't know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father, so how can you say, Show us the Father? Don't you believe that I'm in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I tell you don't come from me, but from the Father that abides in me, He does the works.

Jesus spoke the elegant words at the Last Supper of Jesus Christ ... Believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else believe me for the things I do. Whoever believes in me, the things that I do, he will do also, and even greater things, because I'm going to my Father. And whatever you ask in my name, I'll do, so my Father may be honored in the Son. If you ask anything in my name, I'll do it ... Wow, what a promise, huh?

This is why when you pray, it's important to pray in the name of Jesus Christ. The next thing that Jesus told them, is another thing that they wouldn't understand until later, but is a vital part of their future and of our lives today as well. Remember as you read this, that we're all Jesus' disciples as well, and what He said applies to our lives today just as it did when He taught the disciples in their time. (Another Last Supper Bible study tidbit!)

Jesus continued, If you love me, keep my commandments. I'll pray to the Father, and He'll give you another Comforter, so He may abide (stay) with you for ever. He is the Spirit of truth, whom the world can't receive, because it doesn't see Him or know Him. But you know Him, because He lives with you and will be in you. I won't leave you comfortless. I'll come to you.

In a little while, the world won't see me anymore, but you see me. Because I live, you will live too. On that day, you'll know that I am in my Father and you are in me and I am in you. Whoever has my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me, and the one who loves me will be loved of my Father and I'll love him and show myself to him.

The Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, He will teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatever I have said to you. I've told you this before it happens so that when it happens you'll believe. After this, I won't talk much with you because the prince of this world (Satan) is coming and has no interest in me. But so the world may know that I love the Father and as the Father commands, I do.

So, let's just summarize a little bit from what we have taken from the Last Supper Bible study looking into the Son-sational story of the Last Supper of Jesus Christ. The Apostles and Jesus are celebrating the Passover together, Jesus knowing that His death is around the corner, the Apostles looking forward to Jesus reigning in an upcoming Kingdom of power and glory in Jerusalem. After supper, Jesus washes the Apostles' feet as they nervously wonder why the Messiah is doing the chores of a servant. To add to it, Jesus tells them that one of them will betray Him.

The surprise of this confuses everyone at the Last Supper of Jesus Christ, but then comes the real shocker ... Before morning, Peter will deny his Lord thrice!

Things aren't going the way the Apostles had hoped, but Jesus has been warning them for months now that what awaits Him in Jerusalem is a Cross, not a throne. Now He tells them that He won't be with them much longer, but not to worry because He's gonna send someone to guide them.

He tells them the wonderful news about the Holy Spirit, but the moment is too intense and God has hidden the meaning of this from them. They can't understand what a gift this really is, but just think of what Jesus said for a moment:

John 14:26

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

The Last Supper Bible study reveals to us that the Last Supper of Jesus Christ was an event as to prepare for His upcoming Death and Resurrection. It is now used as prophecy from Jesus to prove yet again that ... Jesus is Lord.

There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another force that is protecting us from him; it is the Holy Spirit. It is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it.
