“Keep doing this in remembrance of me” (Luke 22:19)

The commemoration of the death of Jesus Christ must be celebrated in the same way as the Passover, only between spiritual circumcised people, between faithful Christians, in congregation or in family (Exodus 12:48, Hebrews 10:1, Colossians 2:17; 1 Corinthians 11:33). After the Passover celebration, Jesus Christ set the pattern for the future celebration of the remembrance of his death (Luke 22: 12–18). They are in these biblical passages, gospels:
- Matthew 26: 17–35.
- Mark 14: 12–31.
- Luke 22: 7–38.
- John chapter 13 to 17.
The evening was spent in three stages: The moment of the Passover celebration (John 13: 1–3). The transition between this event and the establishment of the new celebration, which would now replace the Passover: the commemoration of the death of Christ, as “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29–36; 2:17, Hebrews 10:1).
During this transition, Jesus Christ washed the feet of the twelve apostles. It was a teaching by example: to be humble to one another (John 13: 4–20). Nevertheless, this event should not be considered a ritual to practice before the commemoration (compare John 13:10 and Matthew 15:1–11). However, the story informs us that after that, Jesus Christ “had put his outer garments on”. We must therefore be properly clothed (John 13: 10a, 12 compare with Matthew 22:11–13). By the way, on the execution site of Jesus Christ, the soldiers took away the clothes that Jesus Christ wore that evening. The account of John 19: 23,24 tells us that Jesus Christ wore a “inner garment without a seam, being woven from top to bottom”. The soldiers did not even dare to tear it up. This makes us understand that Jesus Christ wore quality clothing, consistent with the importance of the event. Without setting unwritten rules in the Bible, we will exercise good judgment on how to dress (Hebrews 5:14).
Then Jesus Christ dismissed the traitor Judas Iscariot. This shows that this ceremony is to be celebrated only between faithful Christians (Matthew 26: 20–25, Mark 14: 17–21, John 13: 21–30, Luke’s story is not always chronological, but in a “logical order” (Compare Luke 22: 19–23 and Luke 1: 3 “to write them to you in logical order”; 1 Corinthians 11: 28,33)).
The celebration of the commemoration is described with great simplicity: “As they continued eating, Jesus took a loaf, and after saying a blessing, he broke it, and giving it to the disciples, he said: “Take, eat. This means my body.” And taking a cup, he offered thanks and gave it to them, saying: “Drink out of it, all of you, for this means my ‘blood of the covenant,’ which is to be poured out in behalf of many for forgiveness of sins. But I say to you: I will by no means drink again any of this product of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in the Kingdom of my Father.” Finally, after singing praises, they went out to the Mount of Olives” (Matthew 26:26–30). Jesus Christ explained the reason for this celebration, the meaning of the sacrifice his human life, the meaning of the unleavened bread as the symbol of his sinless body, and the cup, symbol of his blood. He asked that his disciples to celebrate the memory of his death every year on Nisan 14th (Luke 22:19).
The Gospel of John informs us of Christ’s teaching after this celebration, probably from verse 13:31 to verse 16:30. After which, Jesus Christ uttered a prayer that can be read in John chapter 17. The account of Matthew 26:30 informs us: “Finally, after singing praises, they went out to the Mount of Olives”. It is likely that the song of these praises took place after the prayer of Jesus Christ.
