Maundy Thursday

In the 1490’s, Leonardo da Vinci painted one of his most famous works, The Last Supper.  This is one of  the events typically commemorated on Maundy Thursday during Holy Week.  Maundy comes from the Latin mandatum, meaning “mandate” or commandment.  It is on this night that Jesus commands the disciples to follow his example of service in the washing of feet and in their love for one another (John 13).  They then share the meal together traditionally known as “The Last Supper,” during which Jesus reinterprets the Passover meal and equates it with his coming sacrifice as the Passover Lamb.

This year, members of GBPC will assume the roles of disciples and recreate this famous picture.  Key disciples will share monologues revealing their inmost thoughts and foreshadowing the events to come in the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus.
