Day 108, April 18 - Luke 22

Click here for today's reading

And when the hour came, he reclined at table, and the apostles with him.
And he said to them, "I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.
For I tell you I will not eat ituntil it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God."
And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he said, "Take this, and divide it among yourselves.
For I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes."
And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying,"This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me."
And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.
But behold, the hand of him who betrays me is with me on the table.
For the Son of Man goes as it has been determined, but woe to that man by whom he is betrayed!"
And they began to question one another, which of them it could be who was going to do this.

Won't it be glorious when we celebrate with our Lord.

  1. Luke 22
    1 The Festival of Unleavened Bread, called Passover, was near.

    14-18 When it was time to eat the Passover meal, Jesus and the apostles were at the table. Jesus said to them, “I’ve had a deep desire to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. I can guarantee that I won’t eat it again until it finds its fulfillment in the kingdom of God.” Then he took a cup and spoke a prayer of thanksgiving. He said, “Take this, and share it. I can guarantee that from now on I won’t drink this wine until the kingdom of God comes.”
