Leonardo da Vinci & Daddy

“The Last Supper” is Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous painting:

Every year for the last 30 years of his life, my dad would sit at the right hand of Christ and play Peter in this LIVE PORTRAYAL of da Vinci’s classic:

The Last Supper occurred just hours before the final episodes leading to the Crucifixion of Jesus, and it is fitting to remember them today on Good Friday. Below is one account of this event from the Living Bible:

Then Jesus and the others arrived, and at the proper time all sat down together at the table; and he said, “I have looked forward to this hour with deep longing, anxious to eat this Passover meal with you before my suffering begins. For I tell you now that I won’t eat it again until what it represents has occurred in the Kingdom of God.”

Then he took a glass of wine, and when he had given thanks for it, he said, “Take this and share it among yourselves. For I will not drink wine again until the Kingdom of God has come.”

Then he took a loaf of bread; and when he had thanked God for it, he broke it apart and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, given for you. Eat it in remembrance of me.”

After supper he gave them another glass of wine, saying, “This wine is the token of God’s new agreement to save you—an agreement sealed with the blood I shall pour out to purchase back your souls. But here at this table, sitting among us as a friend, is the man who will betray me. I must die. It is part of God’s plan. But, oh, the horror awaiting that man who betrays me.”

Then the disciples wondered among themselves which of them would ever do such a thing. Luke 22:14-23 Living Bible
