Jesus’ time on earth is drawing to a close. Jesus asks the disciples to begin preparations for what is now known as “the Last Supper”:
Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.”
“Where do you want us to prepare for it?” they asked.
He replied, “As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters, and say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher asks: Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’ He will show you a large room upstairs, all furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there.”
The disciples left, went into the city and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.
(Matthew 26:17-19; Mark 14:12-16; Luke 22:7-13)
The Teacher is getting ready to teach his final lesson.
The cross is coming.
