On Holy Thursday, Jesus and His disciples ate the feast of the passover. This was the last meal Jesus ate before He was Crucified and is known as 'the Last Supper.' It was eaten in the upstairs room of a house in Jerusalem.

At the Last Supper, Lord Jesus washed the disciples feet as a sign that they were to serve others. During the meal Jesus told them that one disciple would betray Him and John asked who this would be. Jesus replied 'the one who I give this bread to.' He gave them all a piece of bread, but Judas Iscariot took the first piece and Jesus told him to go and do what he had to do. Judas Iscariot left the room.The Disciples assumed he was going to buy more food, but in actual fact he was going to betray Jesus.

Jesus took bread, broke it, and said, 'This is my body. It will be given for you and for all, so that sins may be forgiven. Eat this in remembrance of me.'

Then He took the wine and said, 'This is my blood, the blood of the new and everlasting covenant, it will be shed for you and for all, so that sins may be forgiven. Drink this in remembrance of me.'

After the meal, Jesus and the Disciples went to a garden called Gethsemane. Jesus went further in by himself and prayed to His Father. Peter, James and John were supposed to be guarding Jesus, but they were tired with sorrow (for they knew Jesus was in trouble with the authorities) and they fell asleep. Jesus woke them 3 times. The third time, they saw some guards coming to arrest Him. Judas Iscariot led them and kissed Jesus to show the guards that He was the one to be arrested. Peter cut off one of the Guard's ears, but Jesus fixed it and told him not to fight. The Disciples fled and Jesus was marched off to be put on trial. Peter followed and waited in a courtyard. When he was asked by 3 different people, Peter was frightened, and said 3 times that he did not know Jesus. Then a rooster crowed and he repented and wept, for Jesus had told Peter, 'Before the rooster crows, you will have disowned me 3 times.'

Jesus was questioned by the Governor, Pointius Pilate, but He did not answer most of Pilate's questions. Eventually, Pilate said 'I wash my hands of this man', and on the following morning, Lord Jesus Christ was taken away to be Crucified.

He was the bravest and most wonderful person ever to live, and is now with His Father in Heaven.

Holy Thursday is the first day of the Easter week. Easter is the old Christian celebration. It is even older than Christmas itself as it marks the resurrection of the birth of Jesus Christ. Easter grew into a Holy Week as a result of a series of different historic events which preceded and followed Easter. Holy Thursday marks the beginning of the Holy week and the end of a 40 day of Lent that proceed to the Holy week. There are no special celebrations on a Holy Thursday apart from the church service. The holy week includes the Holy Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On Holy Sunday, after supper, a cross cake is cut into pieces and dipped into a sauce and served to all the family members in a descending order of age.
