Unlocking the Secrets of the Last Supper

February 25th, 2011, Promulgated by Bernie

There is nothing new revealed in this book -nothing. It’s all in the Church Fathers, the Catechism and the writings of popes and saints. Yet, after you read it you are going to say to yourself “Why didn’t anyone ever point this stuff out before?” That is one of the comments the author most often hears from listeners after lecturing on the same topic that is covered in this book -what Jesus thought He was doing when He did what He did, and said what He said, during His last supper with his apostles.

From the book jacket:

(This book) shines fresh light on the last Supper by looking at it trough Jewish eyes…  (Dr. Brant) Pitre explores ancient Jewish beliefs about the Passover of the Messiah, the miraculous Manna from heaven, and the mysterious Bread of the Presence. As he shows, these three keys -the Passover, the Manna, and the Bread of the Presence- have the power to unlock the original meaning of the Eucharistic words of Jesus. Along the way, Pitre also explains how Jesus united the Last Supper to His death on Good Friday and His Resuurection on Easter Sunday.

Brant Pitre is professor of sacred scripture at Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans, he received his Ph.D. in New Testament and ancient Judaism from the University of Notre Dame, Indiana. He is author of “Jesus, the Tribulation, and the End of the Exile.”

Dr. Pitre lives near New Orleans with his wife and five children. More information can be found at

    Bought it for my Kindle, 1/3 of the way through, definitely puts things in a new light, since I have an evangelical preacher as the husband of a sister in law it may just come in handy. although a big thick book my do more good getting through that thick head, wouldn’t want to break my kindle :>)
