Then he took a cup, and after giving 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.”
- Luke 22:17-18
With what emotion Jesus must have passed this final cup among His family of disciples. He has taught about the Kingdom; He has prepared them for its coming and now He reminds them of the deep significance of this sharing. It is not just about remembering God’s past goodness, but something profoundly important is being inaugurated this evening.
In prayer let us take our places at that table with those closest to Jesus. What might we learn?
