Jesus’s final Passover dinner is described in the Gospels with details that often go unnoticed.
For instance, the deep desire Jesus felt to be with his apostles is sometimes glossed over.
He told them that he longed to eat with them before he would suffer.
They desired to eat with him too, to share the meal, conversation, and experience.
Can you imagine yourself there at the table, listening, eating, talking, drinking, laughing, asking questions or responding to the ones Jesus posed?
Focus on feeling the warmth of knowing how much Jesus wants to be with you and the others.
If you had the chance, what would you like to say to Jesus, especially knowing that his suffering was coming?
When the hour came, Jesus took his place at the table, and the apostles with him. Jesus said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer…” Luke 22:14-15 NSRV
