    Was it the Devil that had horns coming out of his head, or am I thinking of the Vikings?

    Plus, wasn't "The Last Supper" just one of those, "Hey, everybody over on this side of the table for the picture!" situations?

    Weird, I was trying to type the Old Testament name for " " and the computer won't let me. You know, begins with a " "and ends with an " ".

    Interesting that I thought this thread was going to ask us what we'd like to eat if we knew it was our last meal before we entered the throes of death.

    However, now that I've read it, I concur with tds' analysis.

    OK... passover.

    In Exodus, the Jews killed a lamb and marked their doorposts with its blood before the Angel of Death visited (the final plague on Egypt, who held the Jews in slavery). The lamb's sacrifice protected them, but death (of the firstborn sons) came to the Egyptians.

    Jesus' sacrifice was represented by the lamb. The idea is that God must punish sin, but he can accept a sacrifice. Christians are those who 'mark their doorposts' with Jesus' blood; his sacrifice protects them from punishment.

    There's a bunch more subtle parallels between old Testament stuff and Jesus' entry in to Jerusalem, death and resurrection. It's interesting whether you believe it or not. Billy can probably help out...

    Hmmh... this exclusive photo of what really happened seems to suggest otherwise.

    Hmmmm - best way to explain - there's a set of mechano pieces in Desky's head, but he has no instruction manual. Results may vary

    I used the 'sacrificial lamb' line of thinking in my determination for what it's worth.

    Hope this helps.
    That was the most logical choice - I just needed confirmation.

    Anyways, what's lamb without mint sauce?


    Thankyou.

    Desky.

    started a topic Last Supper Question

    Last Supper Question

    Please forgive my ignorance.

    In da Vinci's painting, The Last Supper, is Jesus the lamb?
    Have done a quick search without much luck so thought I'd try here.

    Thanks
