The Last Supper
Bible Passage: Matthew 26:26-30
Memory Verse: 10 This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son
as a sacrifice to take away our sins. 1 John 4:10 (NLT)
Bottom Line: I can know that Jesus loves me because He died on the cross for me.
Big Picture Question: Why did Jesus die on the cross? Jesus died on the cross to forgive us from our sins and came back to life to show that we are forgiven.
Christ Connection: At the Passover, Jesus shared His last meal with the disciples before His death and resurrection. Jesus said that His death would establish a new covenant. God’s people had broken the old covenant, and God promised to make a new covenant to forgive sins. God forgives the sins of those who trust in His Son, Jesus.
