Exodus 24:1-8

1 And He said unto Moses, "Come up unto the LORD, thou and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and worship ye afar off. 2 And Moses alone shall come near the LORD; but they shall not come nigh, neither shall the people go up with him." 

3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD and all the judgments; and all the people answered with one voice and said, "All the words which the LORD hath said will we do." 4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning and built an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars according to the twelve tribes of Israel. 5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, who offered burnt offerings and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the LORD. 6 And Moses took half of the blood and put it in basins, and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar. 7 And he took the Book of the Covenant and read in the audience of the people; and they said, "All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient." 8 And Moses took the blood and sprinkled it on the people, and said, "Behold the blood of the covenant which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words."

Psalm 116 

1 I love the LORD, because He hath heard my voice and my supplications. 
2 Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him as long as I live.

3 The sorrows of death encompassed me, and the pains of hell got hold upon me; 
I found trouble and sorrow. 
4 Then I called upon the name of the LORD:
"O LORD, I beseech Thee, deliver my soul!"

5 Gracious is the LORD and righteous; 
yea, our God is merciful. 
6 The LORD preserveth the simple; 
I was brought low, and He helped me. 
7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul, 
for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee. 
8 For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. 
9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: "I was greatly afflicted." 
11 I said in my haste, "All men are liars."

12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all His benefits toward me? 
13 I will take the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the LORD. 
14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD 
now, in the presence of all His people.

15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints. 
16 O LORD, truly I am Thy servant; 
I am Thy servant and the son of Thine handmaid; 
Thou hast loosed my bonds. 
17 I will offer to Thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, 
and will call upon the name of the LORD. 
18 I will pay my vows unto the LORD 
now in the presence of all His people, 
19 in the courts of the LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. 
Praise ye the LORD!

Hebrews 9:11-22

11 But Christ, having come a High Priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands (that is to say, not of this building), 12 neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood, He entered in once into the Holy Place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13 For if sprinkling the unclean with the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

15 And for this cause He is the Mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were covered under the first testament, those who are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. 16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. 17 For a testament is of force after men are dead, otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. 18 And so not even the first testament was dedicated without blood. 19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book and all the people, 20 saying, "This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you." 21 Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry. 22 And by the law almost all things are purged with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.

Words of Worship - John 6:51a

I am the living Bread which came down from Heaven. If any man eat of this Bread, he shall live for ever;

Mark 14:12-26

12 And on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they killed the Passover lamb, His disciples said unto Him, "Where wilt Thou have us go and prepare, that Thou mayest eat the Passover?" 13 And He sent forth two of His disciples and said unto them,

"Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water; follow him. 14 And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the master of the house, `The Master saith, "Where is the guestchamber where I shall eat the Passover with My disciples?"' 15 And he will show you a large upper room furnished and prepared; there make ready for us."

16 And His disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found it as He had said unto them; and they made ready the Passover.

17 And in the evening He came with the twelve. 18 And as they sat and ate, Jesus said,

"Verily I say unto you, one of you who eateth with Me shall betray Me."

19 And they began to be sorrowful and to say unto Him one by one, "Is it I?" And another said, "Is it I?" 20 And He answered and said unto them,

"It is one of the twelve that dippeth with Me in the dish. 21 The Son of Man indeed goeth, as it is written of Him; but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! Good were it for that man if he had never been born."

22 And as they ate, Jesus took bread, and blessed and broke it, and gave it to them and said,

"Take, eat; this is My body."

23 And He took the cup, and when He had given thanks He gave it to them, and they all drank of it. 24 And He said unto them,

"This is My blood of the new testament, which is shed for many. 25 Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the Kingdom of God."

26 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out into the Mount of Olives. 


Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 25:10

O how great is he that findeth wisdom! 
Yet is there none above him that feareth the Lord.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 5:17-19

"Think not that I am come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any wise pass from the law till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven; but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.
