For Maundy/Holy Thursday – Part II
Mark 14:12–26 (ESV)
12 And on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they sacrificed the Passover lamb…16 the disciples set out and went to the city and…they prepared the Passover. 17 And when it was evening, he came with the twelve. 18 And as they were reclining at table and eating…22 And as they were eating, he took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to them, and said, “Take; this is my body.” 23 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, and they all drank of it. 24 And he said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many. 25 Truly, I say to you, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.” 26 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
