Title: JESUS AND THE JEWISH ROOTS OF THE EUCHARIST: UNLOCKING THE SECRETS OF THE LAST SUPPER
Description:
In recent years, Christians everywhere are rediscovering the Jewish roots of their faith. Every year at Ester time, many believers now celebrate Passover meals (known as Seders), seeking to understand exactly what happened at Jesus' final Passover, the night before he was crucified. This resource by Brant Pitre shines fresh light on the Last Supper by looking at it through Jewish eyes. Using his in-depth knowledge of the Bible and Jewish traditions, Dr. Brant Pitre answers many questions. Pitre explores ancient Jewish beliefs about the Passover of the Messiah, the miraculous Manna from heaven, and the mysterious Bread of the Presence. As he shows, these three keys - the Passover, the Manna, and the Bread of Presence - have the power to unlock the original meaning of the Eucharistic words of Jesus. Along the way, Pitre also explains how Jesus united the Last Supper to his death on Good Friday and his Resurrection on Easter Sunday. 228 pages
