Best Answer

The Last Supper does appear in the Gospel of John, beginning at Chapter 12, verse 1. Jesus spends this time with his disciples, instructing them at the supper in chapters 12-14, and He further instructs them on the way to the Garden of Gethsemane, chapters 15&16.

AnswerThe Last Supper was the Passover feast and appears in the Synoptic gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke, because Passover occurred on the Thursday before the crucifixion. In John's Gospel, the Passover was on the Friday of the crucifixion, so there is no Last Supper recorded, instead Jesus washed the feet of the disciples.

What is the difference between the synoptic accounts of the Last Supper and that of John's Gospel?

A:In the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke), the Last Supper takes place on the evening of the day of the Passover - it is the Jewish Seder feast. John's Gospel moves the chronology (eg John 19:14) so that in his crucifixion, Jesus was the sacrificial lamb of the Passover, and therefore this gospel omits the ritual Last Supper. Apart from mentioning that Jesus and the disciples had their evening meal, John replaces the Last Supper by a ritual in which Jesus washes the feet of the disciples.

Why does the movie 'The Gospel of John' show Mary Magdalene at the Last Supper?

What gospel does not contain a communion or last supper narrative?

A:In the three synoptic gospels, the Last Supper is the feast of the Jewish Paassover (eg Mark 14:16) and each describes the events at that meal, after which Jesus went to pray, was arrested and then crucified on the following day. For theological reasons, John's Gospel has the crucifixion take place on the day before the Passover feast, and so only mentions Jesus and the disciples at an ordinary evening meal. Instead of the Last Supper narrative, John contains a narrative about Jesus washing the feet of the disciples.

In the synoptic gospels, the Last Supper was on the day of the Jewish Passover feast, so we can say that Jesus and the disciples were partaking of the Passover feast.In John's Gospel, the crucifixion was on the day of preparation for the Passover, so John does not describe a Last Supper, saying just that on evening before, when their supper was ended, Jesus washed the feet of the apostles.
