  2. Just as the author described the understanding and practice of many Latter-day Saints regarding the Passover tradition within this article, I, too, fell within these unknowing parameters. I am not, nor have I ever participated in any type of Jewish Passover tradition. It isn’t that I haven’t been interested. It’s that I haven’t ever had an opportunity. So, when Rebecca begins this article admonishing about the difficulties involved for a non-participant to fully understand the linkage from Jewish tradition to Last Supper and finally on over to Latter-day tradition… well, I understand exactly what she is attempting to describe, because I fit well within those confines.

    Therefore, after reading this article, perhaps the biggest and easiest takeaway for me has been the first-time and then deeper understanding of the sequence of events related to the Passover and as directly revealed within the description of the Last Supper of Jesus Christ.

    As a novice, I had never heard about nor understood that the mentioning of certain breaking of bread or of sharing of wine might pertain not only explicitly to the new commandment of the Sacrament, but to the old traditional commandment of the Passover.

    It was like a light bulb was turned on and for the first time I could see the interrelationship between the two. I must admit that as a lifelong member who has read and studied much, to have never grasped the significance of the description of the actions as they took place during the Last Supper was eye-opening, indeed.

    Thank you, Rebecca Reynolds Lambert, for a marvelous introduction to this explanation of these events culminating in the Easter tradition of which we’re all familiar. This was very enjoyable.
