Meals are poignant occasions. I am sure you can think back to a family meal that carries a particular significance; that perhaps you never realised until after the event. There is no doubting that the disciples did not fully realise what was going on here. They were taken up with the immediate question of who was going to betray Jesus.
They missed the deeper meaning by being overly concerned with the ‘immediate’.
If you look at your life right now are you living so much in the now that you are missing the deeper significance of things?
