There are several purposes for the Lord’s supper, each one centers around remembering something about Christ: Life, Death, Resurrection, Ascension, Intercession, and Return.
In today’s passage, we examine the Jewish roots of the Passover meal, discuss why this is called the Last Supper, and see the meaning behind the First Supper, also known as Communion or the Eucharist. Jesus ended a 1500-year old tradition and instituted a new covenant that has lasted for 2000 years and will continue until Jesus returns. During this dinner with his disciples, Jesus drops several surprises on his crew. We also partake of communion at the end.
In His humanity, Jesus asked to be saved from the dreadful hour of his death.
In His divinity, Jesus knew that if he were to be saved, sinful man could not be.
By His love, and for His glory, Jesus endured the dreadful hour, died for sinful mankind, and was buried in a tomb.
In this short service, Pastor Trent lead in musical worship, Pastor Scott explains the dreadful hour, and we celebrate the Lord's Supper.
