Encyclopedia Article for Last Supper

in the New Testament (Matt. 26:17-29; Mark 14:12-25; Luke 22:7-38; I Cor. 11:23-25), the final meal shared by Jesus and his disciples in an upper room in Jerusalem, the occasion of the institution of the Eucharist. According to the biblical account, Jesus sent two of his disciples to prepare for the meal and met with all the disciples in the upper room. He told them that one of them would betray him. After blessing bread and wine and giving it to them to eat and drink, Jesus told them that it was his body and his blood of the Covenant.
