Maundy Thursday

Last years post on Maundy Thursday  clearly hands down gets the most page hits here at Sara's Creative Adventures.  How exciting is that?  I Love it!

For Holy week this day gets pushed to the back compared to Good Friday or Easter Sunday.  (In my Opinion.)  
So what is Maundy Thursday?...

The Last Supper is where Jesus first held the Holy Communion

"Maundy" translates to commandment.  Jesus tells his disciples, "to love with humility by serving one another and to remember his sacrifice."

Each disciple asked Jesus this question, "could I be the one to betray you, Lord"?

Jesus washed the feet of his disciples.

Jesus sweat turns to drops of blood as he is in the Garden praying.
God sent an angel to Jesus in the garden.
All Jesus' disciples could do was sleep they were of no help and soon they walked away from him.

Judas Betrays Jesus.

Jesus is arrested by Roman Soldiers.

Here is a video Basin and Towel by Michael Card...

And that is Maundy Thursday My Friends.  
May God bless you and your family during this Easter Season.

We have been studying the story of Jesus washing the disciples' feet in kids Sunday School. It is such an amazing story/ I think most people just don't get the whole idea of what it means to serve and to love.
