Dinner or supper, it doesn’t make any difference. It’s eating time. And we Christians like our eating time. It’s no coincidence that the most famous supper was the last supper of Jesus and His disciples. This supper was the Passover, and I’m sure was a typical Jewish Passover dinner. He would show how significant the elements were and how they all pointed to Him, especially the sacrificial lamb. But it was after this supper that Jesus introduced communion as we know it. Jesus used this dinner as a time to announce to the disciples one way they could remember Him and what He would accomplish on the cross. “19And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. 20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you” (Luke 22:19-20). Jesus often used eating time as a vehicle to teach something important. This teaching would last until He returns. Eating the bread and drinking the cup signified a participation with Him. Eating and drinking meant sustaining life. Remembering Jesus who is life.
