The Last Supper


Until Resurrection Day...

The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci

We realize this is not the actual place

where Messiah celebrated

the Passover with His disciples

on the night before He suffered

not the very place

where He took bread and broke it

took the cup and shared it

not the room in which He said:


Do this in remembrance of Me


but here we are in the Land

here we are in the relative vicinity

We know the actual Upper Room is long gone

but this is a room and it’s upstairs

as near as we can possibly get

besides, in the spirit

we are here, transported

so this is plenty good enough


We break into praise and worship

to celebrate the Passover meal

the taking of the towel

the washing of feet

the reclining at the table

the dipping of the bread

the very first communion

and another noteworthy occasion—



The presence of the Spirit

falls so mightily upon us

we expect blazing tongues of fire

to tumble down from Heaven

and alight upon our heads
