The Last Supper is the final meal that, according to Christian belief, Jesus shared with his Apostles in Jerusalem before his crucifixion . [ 2 ] The Last Supper is commemorated by Christians especially on Maundy Thursday . [ 3 ] Moreover, the Last Supper provides the scriptural basis for the Eucharist , also known as " Holy Communion " or " The Lord's Supper ". [ 4 ] The First Epistle to the Corinthians is the earliest known mention of the Last Supper. The four canonical Gospels all state that the Last Supper took place towards the end of the week, after Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem and that Jesus and his Apostles shared a meal shortly before Jesus was crucified at the end of that week. [ 5 ] [ 6 ] During the meal Jesus predicts his betrayal by one of the Apostles present, and foretells that, before next morning, Peter will deny knowing him . [ 5 ] [ 6 ]
