The Last Supper- Was Just That

This is something that I had started during our Pesach "watch and study" time at the start of Unleavened Bread in 2010. I had some editing that I needed to do on it, but never got back to it until now. So here it is. Tell me what you think.


The Last Supper

Written by
KallyLyn

Did you realize that Yahshua's Dinner with his disciples was NOT the Passover meal, as seems to be traditionally taught? Think logic here- Yahshua cannot eat a Pesach meal and the next day become the Pesach Himself. That would not be in alignment with the Scriptures.

In the Torah, Yahweh gave specific instructions for Pesach and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. As we will see, the “Last Supper” did not fulfill any of the requirements for the Pesach meal. Reading in context of the chapters surrounding this last meal, we will also see other evidence which shows that the Pesach meal was not until the next evening- when Yahshua became the Pesach lamb, according to pattern.

First of all, the Pesach lamb is not an offering or sacrifice. It is a slaughtering. If it were a sacrifice, no one but the Levites would usually be allowed to partake of it. We will see that this is not the case- everyone who trusted the Father for their protection and was willing to obey Torah was able to eat of the Pesach lamb.

Deuteronomy 16:1-2 “Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto Yahweh thy Elohim: for in the month of Abib Yahweh thy Elohim brought thee forth out of Egypt by night. Thou shalt therefore slaughter the passover unto Yahweh thy Elohim, of the flock and the herd, in the place which Yahweh shall choose to place his name there.”

Deuteronomy 16:5-6Thou mayest not slaughter the passover within any of thy gates, which Yahweh thy Elohim giveth thee: But at the place which Yahweh thy Elohim shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt slaughter the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt.”

The word used for “slaughter” in the above verses is Strong’s H2076, or “Zabach” which means “to slaughter an animal”. This is literally referring to killing the animal- it is not an offering to the Father.

The Pesach lamb was to be:

-         Without blemish, the best of the flock

-         A male lamb or kid, and of the first year (no more than a year old)

Exodus 12:5 “Let the lamb be a perfect one, a year old male. Take it from the sheep or from the goats.”

-         The lamb is to be killed/slaughtered ‘in the place where Yahweh puts His name.’

-         You are not to kill it in your own dwelling (after the first Pesach in Exodus)

Deuteronomy 16:1-2 “Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto Yahweh thy Elohim: for in the month of Abib Yahweh thy Elohim brought thee forth out of Egypt by night. Thou shalt therefore slaughter the passover unto Yahweh thy Elohim, of the flock and the herd, in the place which Yahweh shall choose to place his name there.”

Deuteronomy 16:5-6Thou mayest not slaughter the passover within any of thy gates, which Yahweh thy Elohim giveth thee: But at the place which Yahweh thy Elohim shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt slaughter the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt.”

The Process:

-         The lamb must be kept in your home and inspected beginning on the 10th of Aviv

Exodus 12:3 “Speak to all the congregation of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘On the tenth day of this month each one of them is to take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household.”

-         It must be killed during the daylight hours of the 14th day of Aviv

-         Left whole, no bones broken, the only thing you are to do is kill the lamb

Exodus 12:6 “‘And you shall keep [the lamb] until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then all the assembly of the congregation of Yisra’ĕl shall kill it between the evenings.”

-         The blood is to be brushed onto the door frame of your home

-         This is the sign that you have accepted Yahweh’s salvation, and thus He will protect your home

Exodus 12:7 “And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it.”

Exodus 12:13 “And the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I shall pass over you, and let the plague not come on you to destroy you when I smite the land of Mitsrayim.”
We know that Yahshua kept the Feast:

In Scripture we see that from a child Yahshua observed the biblical feasts, including Pesach and the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Luke 2:41-52 “Now [Yahshua’s] parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover. And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Yahshua tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and His mother knew not of it. But they, supposing Him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought Him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance. And when they found Him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking Him. And it came to pass, that after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers. And when [Joseph and Miriam] saw Him, they were amazed: and His mother said unto Him, ‘Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.’ And He said unto them, ‘How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?’ And they understood not the saying which He spake unto them. And He went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart. And Yahshua increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with Yahweh and man.”

We also see that Yahshua fulfills the requirements to be our Pesach lamb.

He was:

-         The firstborn of YHWH and of Miriam (Mary)

Matthew 1:23 “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”

Matthew 3:17 “And lo a voice from heaven, saying, ‘This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.’”

-         A male without blemish, (being the son of Yahweh)

Luke 1:30-35 “And the angel said unto her, ‘Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with Yahweh. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Yahshua. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and Yahweh Elohim shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.’ Then said Mary unto the angel, ‘How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?’ And the angel answered and said unto her, ‘The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of Elohim.’”

-         Killed in the place where YHWH puts His name

Mark 10:32-34And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Yahshua went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things should happen unto him, Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles: And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.

Luke 18:31Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.

-         Was kept and inspected from the 10th day of Aviv to the 14th

Matthew 20-22, Mark 11-12, and Luke 10-22 record this series of tests.

-         Killed during the daylight hours of the 14th of Aviv

Mark 15:25And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.

Luke 23:44-45 “And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.”

-         Left whole with no bones broken

John 19:32-36Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him. But when they came to Yahshua, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe. For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, ‘a bone of him shall not be broken.’

-         Endured the fire of YHWH’s wrath

Psalm 89:46How long, YHWH? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy wrath burn like fire?

Romans 5:9Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

1 Thessalonians 1:9-10For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to YHWH from idols to serve the living and true El; And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Yahshua, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

-         His blood is a sign of faith on our door

Romans 5:8-11 “But YHWH commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Messiah died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to YHWH by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in YHWH through our Master Yahshua Messiah, by whom we have now received the atonement.”

1 Peter 1:18-21 “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in YHWH, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in YHWH.”

-         There is more than enough for all of the Congregation of Believers to share

Mark 10:44-45 “And whoever wishes to be first among you, shall be servant of all. For even the Son of Aḏam did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

John 3:14-18 “And as Mosheh lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so the Son of Aḏam has to be lifted up, so that whoever is believing in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life. For Elohim so loved the world that He gave His only brought-forth Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life. For Elohim did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not judged, but he who does not believe is judged already, because he has not believed in the Name of the only brought-forth Son of Elohim.”      

This is the Pattern set for the Pesach Meal:

-         It is to be eaten with unleavened bread and bitter herbs

Exodus 12:8 “And they shall eat the flesh on that night, roasted in fire – with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.”

-         Roasted with fire

-         Left Whole

Exodus 12:9 “Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire, its head with its legs and its inward parts.”

-         Shared between households which cannot eat a full lamb to themselves

-         The emphasis is on neighbors (if both are Torah-Pursuant)

Exodus 12:4 “And if the household is too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take it according to the number of the beings, according to each man’s need you make your count for the lamb.”

-         Nothing is to be left until the morning

-         Whatever is left over is to be burnt in the fire

Exodus 12:10 “And do not leave of it until morning, and what remains of it until morning you are to burn with fire.”

Deuteronomy 16:4 “And no leaven should be seen with you in all your border for seven days, neither should any of the meat which you slaughter in the evening on the first day stay all night until morning.”

-         It is to be eaten in haste

-         You are to be ready to leave at a moment’s notice

Exodus 12:11 “And this is how you eat it: your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. It is the Passover of Yahweh.”

-         It is not to be eaten by unbelievers, or those who are uncircumcised of flesh and of heart

-         The meat is to stay within your home

Exodus 12:43-45 “And Yahweh said unto Moses and Aaron, ‘This is the ordinance of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof: But every man's servant that is bought for money, when thou hast circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof. A foreigner and an hired servant shall not eat thereof.’” 

Exodus 12: 48And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to Yahweh, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.”

Deuteronomy 10:15-16, 20-21 “Only Yahweh had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day. Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked…Thou shalt fear Yahweh thy Elohim; Him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name. He is thy praise, and He is thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen.”

Exodus 12:49 “One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.”

-         The meat is not to be taken out of your house, once it’s in- it’s in.

-         Again, NO BROKEN BONES, it is to remain whole

Exodus 12:46 “In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof.”

-         All of the congregation of believers shall eat of it

Exodus 12:47All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.”

Exodus 12:49 “One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.”

-         This is to be done every year as a memorial forever

Exodus 12:14 “And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to Yahweh throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever.”

Exodus 12:24 “And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons forever.”

The instructions for the Feast of Unleavened Bread are directly related to those concerning Pesach. The first day of Unleavened Bread is when the Pesach slaughtering takes place. This is sort of a setting-apart of the first day of the Festival, but at the same time has its own special remembrances.

These are the instructions regarding the Feast of Unleavened Bread:

-         You are to eat unleavened bread for seven days.

-         The evening which begins the first day is when you clear all of the leaven out of your houses

-         Anyone who intentionally eats leaven within this week shall be cut off.

Exodus 12:15Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.”

Exodus 12:18 “In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.”

Exodus 12:19-20Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land. Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.”

Deuteronomy 16:3 “Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with [the passover]; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life.”

-         The first day is a set-apart gathering

-         The seventh day is a set-apart gathering

-         On those two days, the only work you are allowed to do is that which pertains to eating

Strong’s H6116 ‛ătsârâh  ‛ătsereth (ats-aw-raw', ats-eh'-reth)
From H6113; an assembly, especially on a festival or holiday: - (solemn) assembly (meeting).

Exodus 12:16 “And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.”

Deuteronomy 16:8 “Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Yahweh thy Elohim: thou shalt do no work therein.”

-         This is to be done every year as a remembrance/memorial forever

Exodus 12:17 “And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance forever.”

The Last Supper does not follow the patterns given:

First of all, to clear up any confusion later on- when I say “the evening which begins the day” I mean that the Biblical calendar day starts at sundown the evening before; as set to pattern in Genesis 1 and 2. The Greco-Roman calendar date would have still been the 13th day, but in Hebraic and Biblical thought, it would have been counted as the evening which begins or prefaces the 14th day. So, it really isn’t as contradictory as it seems. We’re just dealing with two different methods of measuring time. I hope that makes sense, because I’m not sure how else to explain it without getting completely off topic.

In John 13 and Luke 22, we read the accounts of Yahshua’s last meal. John and Luke both record that this was the day before the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Luke 22:7 “Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.”

John 13:1-5  “And before the Festival of the Passover, Yahshua knowing that His hour had come that He should move out of this world unto the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. And supper taking place, the devil having already put it into the heart of Juḏah Iscariot, son of Simon, to deliver Him up, Yahshua, knowing that the Father had given all into His hands, and that He had come from Elohim and was going to Elohim, rose from supper and laid aside His garments, and having taken a towel, He girded Himself. After that He put water into a basin and began to wash the feet of the taught ones, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.”

As is stated previously, the Pesach lamb was to be slain during the daylight hours of the 14th of Aviv which is the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. (Exodus 12:18) The Last Supper happened on the 13th in the late afternoon, or the evening which begins the 14th day. It was the last evening meal shared before Yahshua’s death and resurrection, during which Yahshua instructed and visited with His disciples.

Luke 22:15-18 “And He said unto them, ‘With desire I have desired to eat this meal with you before I suffer: For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of Elohim. And taking the cup, giving thanks, He said, ‘Take this and divide it among yourselves, for I say to you, I shall certainly not drink of the fruit of the vine until the reign of Elohim comes.’”

Scripture says to put away the leaven out of your houses on the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. The believers would have eaten leavened bread up until the very day of the Feast. Yahshua’s meal with His disciples was the last meal using leaven, before the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Exodus 12:15 “Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.”

Yahshua ate and blessed leavened bread during this last meal.

Luke 22:19 “And taking bread, giving thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you, do this in remembrance of Me.”

John 13:18 “I do not speak concerning all of you. I know whom I have chosen, but that the Scripture might be filled, ‘He who eats bread with Me has lifted up his heel against Me.’”

The word translated as bread is ‘Artos’ -Strong’s Reference G740. It is “From G142; bread (as raised) or a loaf: - (shew-) bread, loaf.”

  This is different than the word for unleavened bread in Greek, which is Strong’s G106, “Azumos.” If it had been the Pesach meal He couldn't have used leavened bread. If it had been during the light hours (“between the evenings) of the 14th day of Aviv, He couldn’t use leavened bread. It had to be on the evening which began the day.

In sending Judas out of the house, Yahshua was fulfilling the command to remove all of the leaven from your homes. Judas was ‘the leaven which leaveneth the whole lump’.

John 13:27, 30 “And after the piece of bread Ha’Satan entered into him. Then said Yahshua unto him, ‘That thou doest, do quickly’… So, having received the piece of bread, [Judas] then went out straightaway, and it was night.”

1 Corinthians 5:6-8 “Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Messiah our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”

After the Pesach meal, no one is allowed out of the house. The implication is that you are supposed to stay up, stay inside, and watch for the signal to leave Egypt.

 Exodus 12:11-12 “And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is YHWH’s passover. For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am YHWH.”

 Yahshua would not have sent anyone outside of the house if it was Pesach- no matter what the purpose. Nor would He himself have gone out later that evening (to the garden of Gethsemane).

Matthew 26:30, 36 “And having sung a song, they went out to the Mount of Olives… Then יהושע came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the taught ones, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.”

Mark 14:26, 32 “And having sung a song, they went out to the Mount of Olives… And they came to a place called Gethsemane. And He said to His taught ones, “Sit here while I pray.”

He would not have sent Judas out to buy food for the Pesach meal -AFTER they had already eaten it. If it was really the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Judas wouldn’t have been able to buy anything anyway. It is a miqra. Shops are closed on the day of a miqra.

Strong’s H4744- miqrâ' (mik-raw')

“From H7121; something called out, that is, a public meeting; also a rehearsal: - assembly, calling, convocation, reading.”


John 13:26-30 “Yahshua answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a piece of bread, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. And after the piece of bread Ha’Satan entered into him. Then said Yahshua unto him, That thou doest, do quickly. Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him. For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Yahshua had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor. He then having received the piece of bread went immediately out: and it was night.”

 Nor, after Yahshua’s visit to the garden of Gethsemane, would he be taken so quickly to the Priests or Sanhedrin. They would have been at home after dark for the Pesach. When we read the crucifixion story, it makes much more sense for the Passover to occur the next day.

Mark 14:53-56 “And they led Yahshua away to the high priest. And all the chief priests, and the elders, and the scribes came together to Him. And Kĕpha followed Him at a distance, even into the courtyard of the high priest. And he was sitting with the officers and warming himself at the fire. And the chief priests and all the council were seeking witness against Yahshua to put Him to death, and they were finding none. For many bore false witness against Him, but their evidences did not agree.”

I have tried to make this as clear as possible. However, I realize that I don’t always do a great job at that. If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further, comment or fill out the form on my Contact Page. I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. I appreciate your input.

  1. I too can see what your saying, however your reference to Luke22:15 says this meal, could you share with me which translation you used for this. I too had thought that it was just as described 'the last supper' but he said to them ...with great desire I have desired to eat this pesach with you before my suffering (in every translation I read it was pesach. Even in the Strong's it is pesacha, not 'this meal') He said out of his own mouth it was a passover meal. I had shared this mystery with a Hebraic teacher and he said that there was actually two days of passover. An extra day was added since it would an enormous amount of work to slaughter all the passover lambs in one evening, being there was thousands of people partaking of this festival. I don't know how true it was, I never searched it out.

    If by chance you find out more info on this 'mysterious' subject I would love hear it, for the life of me I can't figure it out. Other than what my Hebraic Teach had said. Like you I just don't see Yahushau partaking of passover and being the pesach lamb?

  2. I used 2 translations for any given reference. These were the KJV and ISR's The Scriptures 1998 edition.

    I'm not sure where that "this meal" came from, unless I changed it... That was from the part that I had finished 2 years ago. :-) I will do some more looking, to see if there was a document that I got that from.

    Remember, the NT was translated to, and now from, Greek. The translators, as humans, are imperfect and may not always reckon it correctly. We must take everything with a grain of salt, and distrust anything that does not line up with Torah. I will continue to look into this.

    Thanks for asking. :-)

  3. Concerning the reference to Luke 22:15-

    I was looking up your question, and the first thing I came across was this article. I think that he answers the issue very well.

    http://www.herealittletherealittle.net/index.cfm?page_name=Last-Supper-Passover-Meal

    Here is an excerpt specifically concerning the verse mentioned:

    "Luke 22:15 has been used to support the assertion that the Messiah and his disciples ate the Passover meal. In this Scripture, Yeshua says: "With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer." The Greek phrase translated "with fervent desire I have desired" is epithumia epethumesa. It literally means "with desire I desired."

    The first word of this phrase, epithumia, is a noun. According to the Exegetical Dictionary of the New Testament, usually this word "has the ambivalent sense, desire, strive for, long to have / do / be something." It can also be "used for (forbidden) desire " (p. 27, vol. 2). Yeshua uses epithumia in this sense in Luke 22:15.

    In the article "The Lord's Supper," the New Bible Dictionary says that ". . . Lk. 22:15 may be read as an unfulfilled wish" (p. 707). Christ truly longed to eat that coming Passover with his disciples, but his desire could not be realized! It was forbidden because it would have destroyed the plan of God, since Christ was destined to be sacrificed as our Passover lamb on the afternoon before the Passover meal.

    In his Bible translation, Ferrar Fenton accurately captures the meaning of Yeshua's words in these verses:

    LUKE 22:15 "And he said to them: 'I have longingly desired [epithumia epethumesa] to eat this Passover with you before my suffering; 16 however, I tell you that I shall not eat of it, until it can be administered in the Kingdom of God.'" (The Holy Bible in Modern English)

  4. That was great Kally! Very thorough.

  5. May I link your blog to some people who've been asking me about Pesach?

  6. Yes you may, Gail. I'm glad to hear others there are interested. :-) Thanks for asking!
