「取りなさい。これはわたしのからだです。」 また、杯を取り、感謝をささげて後、彼らに与えられた。彼らはみなその杯から飲んだ。 イエスは彼らに言われた。「これはわたしの契約の血です。多くの人のために流されるものです。」マルコの福音書14:22~24

有名な画家ダビンチは“The Last Supper(最後の晩餐)”の絵を通してこの場面を見事に描きました。


「ご承知のように、あなたがたが先祖から伝わったむなしい生き方から贖い出されたのは、銀や金のような朽ちる物にはよらず、 傷もなく汚れもない小羊のようなキリストの、尊い血によったのです。」

      The Last Supper


When my wife and I came to Japan, both of us came to like gyouza very much, so my wife quickly learned how to make gyouza. However, the gyouza my wife made was different from the gyouza that you buy in stores. It was gyouza filled with lots of meat. I often ate my wife’s delicious gyouza. In fact, the last meal my wife fixed for me was gyouza. Even now I sometimes eat gyouza, and every time I eat it, I remember my wife and her delicious gyouza.

This afternoon there will be Communion. Communion is also called “The Lord’s Supper.” The night before He was crucified, Christ had supper with His disciples.
And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them and said, "Take, eat; this is My body." Then He took the cup, and when He had given thanks He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. And He said to them, "This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many.
(Mark 14:22-24)

The famous artist, Da Vinci, brilliantly depicted this scene in his painting “The Last Supper”.

What is the purpose of the Communion service that began at that time? It is written in First Corinthians 11:23-26. Here Paul is quoting the words of Christ. According to His own words, the purpose of the Lord’s Supper is to remember Christ. Especially it is for the purpose of showing forth the death of Christ. (verse 26)

Whenever I eat gyouza, I remember my last meal with my wife. In the same way, when we partake of the bread and juice of the Communion service, let’s remember the great sacrifice that Christ paid in order to save us. Let’s remember His body that was wounded for our salvation and the precious blood that He shed to cleanse our sinful hearts.

Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
(First Peter 1:18-19)
