The time had come. The Passover meal had been prepared and the apostolic team gathered around Jesus. It was a critical moment which was to define the end of the old covenant and the beginning of the new. It was the culmination of Israel's history which had pointed to God's Redeemer buying back sinful humanity from Satan's control. In a few hours' time, the cross would become the torturous instrument of death. The image of the dying Jesus would be most dreadful to watch, but it needed a clear explanation, or it would remain a mystery.
