The Last Supper

Hans Hobein the Younger: The Last Supper

Hans Hobein the Younger: The Last Supper

Tuesday, July 5, 2016

This event is perhaps one of the most represented in art. When we search the internet for images, the Last Supper of DaVinci, Dalí, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Philippe de Champaigne and even Andy Warhol come forward. As us look for and contemplate our favorite painting, let us reflect on where we would be present on this evening of transformation. Are we seated at the table or serving? Are we behind the scenes or in the thick of activity? Are we close by to hear Jesus’ words or have we come to believe that the rabbi somehow has misunderstood God’s call? Where ever we find ourselves we can be certain of this: we are all equal in Christ’s eyes.

We might choose one or all of the Gospel versions of this event. Mark 14:1-31, Matthew 26:26-35, Luke 22:1-28 and John 13-17

This week we pause to read scripture and to pray and reflect at noon, keeping those in The Noontime Circle in mid-day prayer. You may want to click on the Connecting at Noon page on this blog at: https://thenoontimes.com/connecting-at-noon/ Or you may want to follow a series of brief posts that begins today, inspired by paintings of the life of Jesus Christ  that can be found at: http://www.jesus-story.net/painting_family.htm In these posts, we will have the opportunity to reflect on a scripture verse and an artist’s rendition of that event. Wishing you grace and love and peace in Christ Jesus.
