Luke 22:17-20 There’s so much more to the background of the Lord’s Supper. It began with the history of the Hebrew people, when God delivered them from bondage, when they celebrated the first Passover. Listen to the Passover rituals and the amazing symbolic connections to partaking in this sacrament. God is faithful; He delivers and saves from bondage with the blood of the Lamb. The breaking of the bread and the taking of the cup remind us of what Christ has done to set us free.
