Filmed and dramatized entirely in authentic locations of the Holy Land and the Middle East, “Last Supper” is the most elaborate and extensive film ever made on the Last Supper. Jesus met with his 12 disciples in the “upper room” in Jerusalem, where they shared that famous historic meal. It was the traditional Jewish Passover “Seder” meal, which to this day symbolizes the deliverance from slavery to freedom and is commemorated for the last supper the ancient Hebrews shared before leaving Egypt, on their long journey to the Promised Land.
“Last Supper” gives an overview of Jewish history and cuisine, including their celebration of Passover. The film shows a modern family celebrating Passover. The film also focuses on Christ during the night of the Passover meal when he instituted the Last Supper and shared the bread and wine with his disciples. The film features paintings of the Last Supper, reenactments of the events, and a few history lessons involving the Jewish people, including the time of Pharaoh and the captivity of the Jews.
“Last Supper” includes some subject matter that may not be appropriate for young viewers. Those scenes include lambs about to be sacrificed, and then the skinning of a lamb and various lamb corpses being lowered into the fire for cooking, a scene of Christ’s back being whipped before the crucifixion, and the story of Judas Iscariot and his betrayal. With that said, we are pleased to award “Last Supper” our Faith Friendly Seal for ages 12+. This DVD brings the Last Supper to life!
