Mark 14:22-25 And as they were eating, he took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to them, and said, “Take; this is my body.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, and they all drank of it. And he said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many. Truly, I say to you, I shall not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”
Artistic representations of the Last Supper traditionally capture the scene of the Eucharist described in all three of the Synoptic Gospels. These representations allude to the betrayal of Christ by Judas Iscariot and the Passion. Certain details of the illustrations shown here are clearly inspired by details in the Gospel According to St. John, including the mention of the beloved disciple who reclined next to Jesus as well as the spirit of Satan entering Judas.
