Secret journey to the upper room

Contributed by LUMO project
On the Jewish day of unleavened bread, when the Passover lamb was sacrificed, Jesus sent Peter and John on a secret mission. ‘As you enter the city a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house he enters. Tell the owner of the house to show you the guest upper room where you will prepare the Passover meal.’ – Slide 1
Peter and John went into the city. – Slide 2
They kept a lookout for the man with a jar of water on his head. – Slide 3
Then he appeared in view. (It was an unusual sight because it was normally women, not men, who carried water jars). – Slide 4
‘This is our man. Let’s follow him.’ – Slide 5
They followed the man with the jar through the narrow streets of Jerusalem ... – Slide 6
... into a district where many of those plotting to kill Jesus worked and lived. – Slide 7
Peter and John kept following the man. – Slide 8
He led them to a house that had a large upper room. – Slide 9
Peter and John entered the house and began to prepare the Passover meal as Jesus had asked. Why was the location so secret? Jesus knew Judas would betray him but he did not want this to happen until he had shared their last supper together. – Slide 10
