The Last Supper

TEXT: MATTHEW 26:17-30

Chronologically, the Last Supper follows the betrayal of Jesus by disciple Judas Iscariot. Interestingly, Matthew - a former tax collector at the time he was called to be a disciple by Jesus - was the only one in the Gospels to give an exact amount to Jesus' betrayal - 30 pieces of silver.

TEXT: MATTHEW 26:6-13
