Sacred Love: John 13 Maundy Thursday
Passage: John 13:1–13:35
On this night we look back to the Lord’s Last Supper. Maundy Thursday, gets its name from the Latin word mandatum —commandment, remembering Jesus’ words to the Apostles during the Last Supper, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another” (John 13:34). The last supper and the dealings of Christ surrounding this meal and especially following it displays the complete love of Jesus.
