Lessons from the Upper Room

Today we enter into the sacred place the upper room where Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper.

Here Jesus taught His disciples just before His crucifixion in John 13 through to 17, here the devil won a victory over Judas, here Jesus met with His disciples after the resurrection, and here the disciples prayed and the Holy Spirit set the fires of Pentecost.

We can see that Jesus was facing the agony of the cross, and it is evident that the disciples were not ready for the work He was committing to them.

They were dense, weak, jealous of one another, and hungry for power.

Judas was struggling with satan.

The disciples still didn’t understand about the Messiah or their mission.

They had to learn quickly and adequately.
