  1. Interesting post. I vaguely remember way back in the cobwebs of my mind that in my catholic school days, I learned that it was a Passover Seder that was the Last Supper, which made the covenant special because it became the new covenant. I think. πŸ™‚

    There’s disagreement on that, since some argue that the seder was a rabbinic innovation after the destruction of the Temple in 70 C.E., which would place its origin after the time of Jesus on earth. But Mike’s post offers reasons that some see the Last Supper as a seder, on some level. His links are probably a good spectrum of opinion on this debate.


  3. How very interesting. πŸ™‚
