The theme for this half term in RE is What Defines Wisdom?
In our first lesson, we will be creating a timeline of the events we have studied so far in RE. These will include events such as the Holocaust, the story of Moses, as well as the event leading to the Crucifixion of Jesus.
What themes do Passover and Easter have in common?
We will look at this picture and establish what we think it represents and what is happening.
When I arrived back in Jerusalem I was taken aback to be greeted by supporters laying down Palm Leaves in front of me. It was such as joyous day. However, it didn’t last long, for when I travelled to the temple to collect a lamb to slaughter, to carry out the tradition of Passover and I was disrespected. Men were using the Temple, the home of my father, as a place to barter and sell all kinds of things. I couldn’t help but feel rage. Anger rose within me. The temple was not the place for a scene such as this. I turned over the tables, grabbed rope and swung it around lashing out at those around me, procrastinating. Screaming at everyone to leave.
That night at the Passover meal, known to most as The Last Supper, because it was my last I was betrayed by Judas and arrested for claiming to be God’s son. The next day I was crucified. Hanging from the cross I watched the crowds staring at me, shouting at me and waiting for me to die. My body gave in and my life was over. I had known this was coming and knew my body would rebuild itself in 3 days, so I wasn’t scared. I was taken to a cave and the opening was covered by a rock and guarded. Without anyone noticing I awoke and escaped the cave. This today is known as my Resurrection and is now celebrated by Christians as Easter Monday. Who would have known that I would encourage a new religion, separating out the people but at the same time bring them together with these two celebrations, interlinking them forever entwined.
What does The Last Supper represent?
