Just before he died Jesus shared a special meal with his followers and commanded them to remember him, and his sacrifice, by sharing bread and wine together – symbols that speak of his sacrifice on the cross for us.

What do these symbols, what does his sacrifice, mean to you today?

Reading: Matthew 26:17-30

Questions to think about:

How do you imagine the scene described by Matthew? What are the key things that stand out for you?

What does it mean to you that Jesus was prepared to give his body and blood, to die, for you?

How do / can these symbols and this meal help you cope with the challenges and difficulties of life?
