Sunday School Lesson 719 The Last Supper

Lesson: 719 Lesson Name: The Last Supper & The First Breaking of Bread
Theme: Christ the Lamb / Price Paid

Reading: Mark 14:12-25 Matt. 26:17-29 Luke 22:7-30 1Corinthians 11:23-28

Memroy Verse: I Corinthians 11:26
Memory Verse Text: For as often as ye eat this bread and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till He come.

Attention Getter:

Point 1: The time draws near when His sacrifice must be made. It is the Passover. This is the recollection of a night long to be remembered and He is the true fulfillment of it all.
Point 2: The place chosen is an upper room. The hour comes - the Saviour sits down with His disciples. He reveals His desire for this hour Luke 22.15 and speaks of suffering. How little they knew what those words conveyed.
Point 3: After the Passover celebration with all it's beauty and meaning, He speaks with pain of the Betrayer. Even in the midst of such a lovely time with His own, there lurks a dreadful reminder of what is to come. The betrayer is dismissed to do his nefarious deed.
Point 4: He takes bread - breaks it and gives to His own telling them of the significance of it. Likewise of the cup (speaking of both it's significance and also the New Covenant). Matthew tells us plainly that this blood is shed for many for the remission of sins. What a reminder that nothing else but precious blood would do.
