Scripture Passage: Matthew 26:17-19, 26-28

The first festival the Jews celebrated each year was the Passover. It was in memory of how God had delivered them from slavery in Egypt. This festival began with a special supper at which bread made without yeast was served with wine. Jesus knew that He would be crucified the next day so He made this meal the first communion service. We remember His crucifixion by having this ceremony in our churches.

1. What were the Jews remembering at their festival?
They were remembering their delivery from slavery.
2. What did they serve at the supper?
They served unleavened bread and wine.
3. Why do we have this ceremony in our churches?
It is to remember Christ's sacrifice of His body and blood for
our sins.

Memory verse: Hebrews 9:28
So also Christ died only once as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again but not to deal with our sins again. This time he will bring salvation to all those who are eagerly waiting for him. (NLT)
