Lent 2016--Day Thirty-Three

After the supper was over, he had given the Disciples bread and wine and explained the meaning of the ceremony, his body and his blood for their redemption. Then, he made a somewhat casual comment that the one who would betray was sitting at the table with him.

Immediately they began to question who would do that. They argued among themselves accusing each other and defending themselves.

Soon the argument morphed into a dispute about who should be the greatest of them. Jesus was not pleased with this display of attempted domination. He reminded them that the greatest would be the one who served.
