One possibly could not do better learning about our Master and His purposes than to study His all words of this one night. John provides the most detailed account of the discourse presented to the twelve kjv@John:13:1-17:26, however all accounts add much breadth of further light kjv@Matthew:26:17-35 kjv@Mark:14:13-31.

The first essential to grasp is that this is not to be a story of what sin man does upon Jesus, it is what Jesus obediently followed the Father through without the slightest reservation, for the sake of those that are His own. It had been said kjv@Matthew:10:28 "fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell"; this act of obedience by Jesus is the ultimate reflection upon that. What ever Jesus is to suffer physically in the flesh at the hand of man is nothing to be compared to the suffering of being a eternal triune member of the Godhead separated for a time from Father and Spirit and the ever living. He suffers all this and yet retains the hope and assurance that God will not suffer HIS "Holy One" from seeing corruption kjv@Psalms:16:10 kjv@Isaiah:53.

In a similar vain, for all those that have sinned there is one type of baptism (unto repentance), for the single one who has not ever sinned this is His baptism. Because of His own baptism our baptism into Him is to work.

In order for Jesus to best convey all of this, He relies heavily on deep/memorable symbolisms and gestures throughout the evening, the washing of feet, being the true vine, being no longer servants but friends of, times like a woman in travail, many mansions in the Father's house. He is found exhorting, warning, predicting, introducing the Holy Ghost as the Comforter, and most amazingly praying before them direct to the Father on their behalf more so than anytime else recorded.

Is there any doubt then, given this tremendously rich and insightful context, that when Matthew/Mark/Luke focus more then on the Holy Communion to bread and wine that Jesus is planting a lasting imagery into our hearts of what His obedient walk to Calvary and beyond is supposed to forevermore mean? Search that then and one will find the answer to all other things.

Let every man/women examine himself/herself. Does the simple act of Communion mean anything less to each man/woman/child than this Messiah has meant for it to be for each partaking believer? Does the image therein have any less effect or influence upon each heart and soul than divinely required? Whether the wine and bread are literally the flesh and blood or symbolically, can there be any difference in what cost and what effect it is to mean?
