Maundy Thursday
During this night four important events happen.
First, Jesus prepares the upper room for their Passover meal. In doing so, he also washes the disciples’ feet, and an act of servitude. This exemplifies his ministry on earth to humble himself and love the least of these. He even washes the feet of Judas Iscariot.
Secondly, Jesus breaks bread and uses the unleavened bread and the wine at the table as symbolism for his coming sacrifice. We recognize this practice now during communion. Some churches practice this sacrament weekly, others, monthly.
Thirdly, Jesus goes out to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray. During these hours, the disciples fall asleep and Jesus is in agony about the events to come.
Finally, Judas approaches with a mob to come and arrest Jesus and place him on trial.
