The Last Supper

7 Then the day of Unleavened Bread came. That was the time the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. 8 Jesus sent Peter and John on ahead.

“Go,” he told them. “Prepare for us to eat the Passover meal.”
9“Where do you want us to prepare for it?” they asked.

10 Jesus replied, “When you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house he enters.

11 Then say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher asks, “Where is the guest room? Where can I eat the Passover meal with my disciples?” ’

12He will show you a large upstairs room with furniture in it. Prepare for us to eat there.”

13 Peter and John left. They found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover meal.

14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles took their places at the table. 15He said to them,

“I have really looked forward to eating this Passover meal with you. I wanted to do this before I suffer. 16I tell you, I will not eat the Passover meal again until it is celebrated in God’s kingdom.”

17 After Jesus took the cup, he gave thanks. He said, “Take this cup and share it among yourselves. 18I tell you, I will not drink wine with you again until God’s kingdom comes.”

19 Then Jesus took bread. He gave thanks and broke it. He handed it to them and said, “This is my body. It is given for you. Every time you eat it, do it in memory of me.”

20  In the same way, after the supper he took the cup. He said, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. It is poured out for you.

21 But someone here is going to hand me over to my enemies. His hand is with mine on the table.

22The Son of Man will go to his death, just as God has already decided. But how terrible it will be for the one who hands him over!”

Tuesday Travels- Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico

If you like art in any form- paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, pottery, jewelry, woodcarving- then a trip to the Santa Fe and Taos New Mexico area will be a treat for you. You will be able to visit gallery after gallery, shop after shop for days on end, and still not see them all. If you arrive by air your art tour will start right at the airport which is small but sets the tone for what you will see during your stay. As you step outside the terminal you will be greeted by the bronze statue Reverence by artist David Pearson. As described in an art guide, “Hers is a pose of prayer, of openness to powers beyond all understanding,.. Her ancient gesture is transformed into one of welcome and benefaction in her perfect placement at the Santa Fe airport. ”

Taos likewise is an art mecca both within the town and also at the Taos Pueblo, which is also a must see for those interested in  Native American history and culture. At the pueblo, tribe members display and sell handmade arts and crafts.

As you travel around both cities and the surrounding areas, you don’t have to look for the art- it will find you.
