A passover feast was organised for Jesus by his disciples in one of the last few days before the crucifixion of Jesus. Jesus and twelve disciples were present at the dining table in a house in Jerusalem, eating the meal. While they were eating, Jesus told them that he had been waiting a long time to have this last supper with all of them. He also said that this was because he loved them. He picked up a loaf of bread in his hand, divided it into two-halves. He thanked the Lord for it and offered one of them to the disciples, saying, “This piece of bread is my body, which I give to you people." He then picked up a cup of wine and said, “This cup of wine is my blood.” “I will shed my blood and my body so that you will be forgiven for your sins." They ate the bread, drank the wine, and the meal went on for a long time. They took their time in really enjoying asking questions from Jesus.
At the end, Jesus washes the feet of all the disciples and asks them to wash one another’s feet too. Jesus told them that he did this because he loves them and wants them to learn to do nice things to the others.
