Jesus is crucified at the hands of lawless men, but He is ultimately delivered up for God’s people according to the plan of God the Father Himself. His shed blood and perfect obedience satisfy the wrath of God and secure the purchase price for the sins of His people. Because of Him, those who are in Christ are made righteous. May you respond to the good news of this Gospel today!

Jesus institutes the LORD’s Supper in these verses. By so doing, He demonstrates that His life and sacrifice are the ultimate fulfillment to which the Passover looked forward. He gives His disciples a new meal to commemorate and to celebrate as His people await the consummation of His coming Kingdom. A good question to ask yourself is: does this reality make you want to sing like it did His first disciples?

Jesus shares the Last Supper, the Passover, with His disciples most likely on the eve of His arrest and crucifixion. He willingly undergoes a feast-meal, even with His betrayer(s). Jesus’ great sacrifice shows us, visibly, the great love that God has for His people. Let us all come to Jesus and find forgiveness and reconciliation.
