Week #5 – Last Supper – Matthew 26:17-46 together as a family
or The Servant King and A Dark Night in the Garden from the Jesus Storybook Bible
But some of the people did not like God’s Son
And started a plan to get rid of the One
So, Jesus gathered his friends for a Passover meal
And shared what would happen; it seemed so unreal
During the Last Supper, Jesus explained that he would die and rise again. It was here that Jesus first described communion – the bread representing his body and the cup representing his blood. After this, he left and went to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray before the soldiers came to arrest him. With your family, go find a garden or a patch of flowers. Take your picture together and look for signs of new life – shoots, buds, seedpods. Jesus came that we might have new life and have it for all eternity!
