The Table Where Christ Was Betrayed

We come to the Table of the Lord where Jesus instituted His supper.  On the night in which He did this, one of His own who was not of His own, Judas, betrayed Him.  That betrayal would lead to the arrest and crucifixion of Jesus.

Jesus knew all of this.  He knew that the bread was His body and as He broke the bread He knew what would happen to His body.  He knew the cup of wine was the cup of His blood shed and He knew it would be a cup of violence, a cup of wrath, even the cup of His Father’s wrath.

But He knew as well that this Table pointed to the glorious truth of His exhaustive sovereignty over everything, every event, every wrong, every tear.  And He knew that this Table also declared the completed work which would take place which would right every wrong, deliver every suffering, cleanse any sin, put down every evil – and save the world.

You are invited to come and participate in both.  Come and welcome to Jesus Christ.
