Artwork 2  - Last Supper

Mark 14: 22-25 CEV

During the meal Jesus took some bread in his hands. He blessed the bread and broke it. Then he gave it to his disciples and said, “Take this. It is my body.” Jesus picked up a cup of wine and gave thanks to God. He gave it to his disciples, and they all drank some. Then he said, “This is my blood, which is poured out for many people, and with it God makes his agreement. From now on I will not drink any wine, until I drink new wine in God's kingdom.”

Artwork 3  - Easter Story

Jesus had the last supper with his disciples. Then he went to pray. Judas the traitor gave Jesus over to the soldiers. While Jesus was being judged, Peter dined that he knew him three times and the rooster crowed. They took Jesus to Pilate and he said he had no trouble with him. They gave him over to the High Priests and Romans. They whipped Jesus and put him on the cross. When he was dead they put him in a tomb. After three days he rose again.
