the only recorded celebration, which despite the plethora of events stolen from pagan pre christian culture which now litter the 'Christian calender', that Christ commanded his followers to observe is the Last supper, also known as the Lords evening meal, the Memorial of Christ death etc will approach, by the Jewish calender on Nisan 14 after sundown, which roughly corresponds to April 9th 2009, after sundown, depending on your locality. the scriptural precedent is found at Luke 22:14-20
At length when the hour came, he reclined at the table, and the apostles with him. And he said to them: “I have greatly desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer; for I tell you, I will not eat it again until it becomes fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” And, accepting a cup, he gave thanks and said: “Take this and pass it from one to the other among yourselves; for I tell you, From now on I will not drink again from the product of the vine until the kingdom of God arrives.”
Also, he took a loaf, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: “This means my body which is to be given in YOUR behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me.” Also, the cup in the same way after they had the evening meal, he saying: “This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood, which is to be poured out in your behalf.
this celebration is the most important and significant even in the Christian calendar. Instituted by Christ himself, it is a time for special reflection and deep appreciation for the sacrifice that Christ gave, not only the bravery and resolve which he showed leading up to it, nor the self sacrifice, humility and obedience he displayed, but the ultimate act of love so that you and I may have a relationship with God, a cleansed conscience and the hope that we may see life!
How will you remember the Christ?
