The Seder and the Supper

James Francis

James Francis compares the Last Supper with the Passover Haggadah through: 1) an outline of the Seder service as found in the Mishnah; Pesahim 10 (c.200 A.D.) 2) a comparison of the Seder and the Lord’s Supper 3) a survey of ‘”extra Supper” Passover motifs’, and 4) the relation of the Lord’s Supper to the “breaking of bread”. Francis is particularly indebted to J Jeremias, The Eucharistic Words of Jesus in his treatment and he works on the assumption that that the Last Supper was a Passover meal.
