A Meal with Meaning

The Seder Meal which is being celebrated this evening puts the last meal Jesus had with his disciples into the context of that evening, the celebration of the Jewish Passover.  The is the meal in which Jesus gave His disciples bread and wine and gave them a new and profound meaning – they were His body and blood.  Lutheran believe that Jesus gives us His body and blood for our forgiveness.  It is a meal with meaning, but not only this unique way that Jesus gives Himself, He gives these gifts in the context of the celebration of freedom from slavery by God’s miraculous intervention.
