Last Supper Prep for Presbyterians

On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, when it was customary to sacrifice the Passover lamb, Jesus’ disciples asked him, “Where do you want us to go and make preparations for you to eat the Passover?”

So he sent two of his disciples, telling them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him. Say to the owner of the house he enters, ‘The Teacher asks: Where is my guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’ He will show you a large room upstairs, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there.” (Mark 14.12-15)


… Jesus went on, “then go to the supermarket and get some of the bread that Thomas likes, but make sure there’s also a gluten free option for Matthew. And get wine, preferably decent stuff, you know how James and John are about wine. And of course non-alcoholic grape juice for me I don’t want to cause any offence in the future.”

“Also pick up some chocolate cake, my future disciples will be less concerned about gluttony. And napkins; we must have napkins, and they need to match the table cloth!”

“eh… another thing Andrew, could you pick up my suit from the dry cleaners, and give my shoes a quick clean, it’s important to get dressed up for this.”

“Oh, and one last thing, give the rest of the disciples a call, you know, the ones that only come for passover.”
