On the eve of the Crucifixion, Jesus gathered his twelve disciples for a last meal. He blessed the bread and wine, referring to it as his body and blood, and invited all of them to eat with him. He encouraged them to continue the tradition, in remembrance of his sacrifice after his death. This gesture has become an important part of Christian doctrine, known as Holy Communion. The Last Supper has been the subject of many paintings, the most famous by Leonardo Di Vinci, after which this Currier & Ives print was designed.
