In the weeks leading up to Easter, we're looking at the events leading up to Jesus' death from the gospel of Mark. Each week we're seeing how each one of these events shows us something about how Jesus is not just our example, he's our substitute. This week we look at the institution of the Lord's Supper. It's easy to think of this as a mere ritual, a sentimental ceremony that Jesus gives us to remember him by, but with little deeper significance or impact on our lives. In reality, Jesus is giving us a profound and life-changing understanding of his death, and a practice that has lasting power to change us if we take it deeper into our lives.
