This book Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist shines fresh light on the Last Supper by looking at it through Jewish perspectives. Using his in-depth knowledge of the Bible and ancient Judaism, Dr. Brant Pitre answers questions such as: What was the Passover like at the time of Jesus? What were the Jewish hopes for the Messiah? What was Jesus’ purpose in instituting the Eucharist during the feast of Passover? And, most important of all, what did Jesus mean when he said, “This is my body… This is my blood”?
Included is a foreword by bestselling author Scott Hahn.
