Maundy Thursday

Updated on April 29, 2015

The Last Supper was the final meal for Jesus and his apostles twelve

Indicated in the First Epistle to the Corinthian precisely where we'll delve

Paul was the first to spread relation and it's told this way,

they joined together on Maundy Thursday on that holy day

It wasn't long after Jesus made his triumphant entry

into Jerusalem that marked the epic apex of the century

John states that two disciples were sent from Bethany to the village beside

to bring back for the Lord, their Master a donkey, one that he would ride

Jesus asked of them to find an ass tied up and never ridden

The animal being the symbol of peace in this message hidden

The crowd awaiting their Lords arrival lay down their very cloak

and branches small and plenty to corroborate invoke

Multitudes of believers proclaimed word of the holy one,

a splendid feast prepared for all welcoming Gods son

Faith in his holy manner boosted with the telling of his revelation

The miracle of raising Lazarus from the dead spread through the congregation

All that were in hope of divine help from Jesus shouted "Hosanna" out in praise

As he declared his cleanse of Herod's Temple would be finished in three days

His only use of physical force as he whipped the thieves out of their den

claiming back and restoring the house of his Father to make it pure again

Absolution completed, Jesus invited his twelve guests to dine

upon a feast of plenty including bread and wine

Seated in the center sided by his six, the Prince of peace would sit

pronouncing denial and deception and predicting which two of twelve commit

Mathews affirmation of the verse spoken that very day

of woe to the man to whom the son of God he would betray

Judas turned to the Rabbi and asked "It isn't me?"

and Jesus answered "You said It" and yes it will be

Proven and justified later by his own commands

Judas was the traitor with the bag in his hands

Peter was predicted to deny Christ not only once but three

Peter swore he would never disown his Lord, that he'd die for thee

All the apostles complied with Peter and voiced so as they rose

but later heard the truth of culprit preceding rooster crows

In repent of his sin, Peter would later weep,

as Jesus turned to confirm the face of the black sheep

Peter stayed the night, despite the Saviours prophecy

Jesus requisitioned Judas out to see who he must see

Judas left and reportedly went to meet with the Jewish authority

to get paid for marking Christ by saluting a kiss of the ordinary

Jesus was arrested and hauled off to the high priest tower

where he was denounced, damned and sentenced by unholy power

Jesus was to be crucified, hung on a cross for all to think about

Faithful followers still believing their redeemer was devout

All that were at the blessed meal knew deep inside that Jesus did not holey part

for he blessed wine and broke bread offered as his body and soul and will remain alive within their heart

Eleven of the twelve apostles spread his last words to sister and to brother,

his last commandment given them to love each and one another.

      I never really tried to cast Judas while I was rendaig the story. He just sort of had his own kind of look. Now that I'm thinking about it though, I would have to say Dave Grohl or Rob Zombie. If your gonna cast him for a movie, go with a real musician. It would also be bomb-ass if you could find a stripper with good acting talent, to play georgia. I always pictured this girl from OK named Jezzebel when I thought of Georgia. She had dark hair, and a thing for whips and leather.Maybe Kate Moss for Florida.Come to think of it, Dave Grohl would probably be the better Judas(in my mind), but probably wouldn't do it. Rob Zombie, on the other hand probably would (and is probably the better candidate in everyone elses mind but mine). Not that my opinion really matters anyway. It's not like someone important is gonna read this and say, Well Gorsh! You know what? That sounds like a purty good idear! I'm just passing time, and thought I'd pass it by putting my 2 cents in. HSB was great though. You had my attention from page one. I couldn't put it down. To the point were it was affecting my work. I came back late from breaks, and everything. COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. And once I was done I read it again for good measure. Same thing with 20th Century Ghosts. I think I read that thing, not exaggerating, 20 some times. Thank you.

      .....not being a big fan of the Bible but certainly respectful of it - I must say this is a most amazing poetic interpretation behind the meaning of the Last Supper - love your poetic narrative style here - it flows so smoothly and I hung dearly onto every word - hubravo from the epi-man and sending you warm wishes and good energy from lake erie time ontario canada 7:32am
