The Last Supper

Luke 22:14-20

14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.

17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:

19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

Story Behind the Art

From the window descends a beam of light directly on the Savior and over the group that follows attentively the actions of the Savior as He breaks the bread. However, the viewer can easily detect Judas as he is the only one who is turning his back away from the Lord.  All the personages seem to be frozen in an extremely solemn attitude.
