Mark Lesson 47 (2023)
THE LORD’S SUPPER
What is one ceremony or observance that is important to you? How does your church celebrate the Lord’s Supper?
Read verse 12. When did the events of this story take place? What did Jesus’ disciples ask him?
Read verses 13-15. What specific instructions did Jesus give the disciples he sent out? Why do you think Jesus planned for the Passover meal in such a secretive manner?
Read verses 16-21. How did Jesus’ predictions compare to what the disciples found when they entered the city? What was the disciples' reaction to Jesus’ prediction of his betrayal? How did Jesus specify who would betray him?
Read verses 22-24. The central emphasis of the Passover meal was traditionally the sacrificial lamb; where did Jesus place his focus? (22-24) How does the old covenant God made with Israel compare or differ from the new covenant he has made through the blood of Jesus Christ?
Read verses 25-26. What important announcement did Jesus make? (25) How did Jesus and the disciples conclude their Passover meal? (26)
What do you want to remember when you take the Lord’s Supper?
