Jesus came to Jerusalem knowing that he was going to be killed.
He also knew that his death would carry a huge spiritual importance.
It was the time of the Passover Festival when the Jewish people remembered their miraculous escape from slavery in Egypt.
Jesus celebrated the Passover with his disciples, but gave it new meaning by linking it with his imminent death on the cross.
The Last Supper
During the last supper Jesus spent time reassuring his disciples that despite his death and physical departure from them, he would leave them his presence through the Holy Spirit.
