Jesus' Last Supper and the Feast of the Passover
What turned out to be Jesus' last meal was, according to three of the synoptic gospels, the traditional Jewish Seder, a ritual feast that marked the beginning of Passover.
The Feast of the Passover commemorated the liberation of the Hebrews from their enslavement in Egypt, and lasted seven or eight days.
It was traditional to celebrate the Feast in Jerusalem, so people from all over the countryside would travel to the city which was overflowing with pilgrims.
Jesus and his disciples were part of this great holiday migration. By that time, Jesus was already being sought by the Jewish authorities and was living near the desert, in a village called Ephraim. He had brought Lazarus back from the dead and the high priests and Pharisees were feeling their authority challenged and their power over the people threatened.
The stage was now set. Jesus was in the holy city. His enemies were on the alert. His apostles were told of his imminent death.
Jesus was preparing to undertake his greatest tribulation and perform his greatest miracle.
