Matthew 26:17-30: The Last Passover and the First Lord’s Supper

With the substitutionary death of Jesus, the Lord’s supper becomes the Christian version of the Jewish Passover. In what Jesus did, He was fulfilling 1400 years of expectations, promises and prophecies. He was also giving the new church community, his followers, a means by which they could remember and respond to the sacrifice He would make for their sins.
