Last Supper Dinner- A Christ-Centered Easter Tradition

If you’re looking for a way to keep Christ in Easter, having a Last Supper family dinner on the Thursday of Holy Week is a great way!

A few years ago, I wanted to add more spiritual celebrations to our Easter Season. We already had the Easter bunny visit on Saturday, but I knew we could focus a whole lot more during Easter Week. (Get all the Holy Week details here)

You can often find Passover meals to attend during Easter time, but they are long, deep, and not super family-friendly.

So…that’s when I decided to create our own Last Supper dinner program.

1. Choose a day to have your Last Supper 

Ideally, you would have your Last Supper on Thursday of Easter Week  since that is when the Last Supper happened before Christ was crucified. 

If you can’t make Thursday work, choose any other day. 

2. Choose your menu 

Instead of doing a typical Passover menu, we chose to eat things that may have been similar to the things that Christ would have eaten in His day. 

Choose from the following menu items:

  • Slow Cooker Lentil soup 
  • Rosemary Ranch Chicken kabobs
  • Garlic Pita bread and hummus
  • sliced tomatoes
  • olives
  • grapes
  • Sparkling Cider (Martinelli’s)
  • oranges
  • nuts
  • dried fruit

3. Discuss the events of the Last Supper 

I found a few different Passover dinner programs online, yet they all seemed to be too long and complicated for a young family. After lots of searching, I was never able to find just what I was looking for, so I compiled my own.

We follow a Simple Passover Dinner program on the Thursday before Easter. It is short and simple, but focuses on the events of Jesus Christ’s life on that Thursday night during Easter week.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
