The Memorial of Jesus Christ’s death (the Lord’s Supper or Lord’s evening meal): how often to be commemorated?

When Jesus Christ instituted the Memorial, he simply said: “Keep doing this in remembrance of me (The Bible, Luke 22:19)”. At no time Jesus specifically stated how often the Memorial should be commemorated. Also no other disciple of Jesus Christ did. But the information on this page may help you to decide how often the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ should be commemorated.

What does the Apostle Paul write about the Lord’s Evening Meal?

When the Apostle Paul wrote about the Lord’s evening meal (the Lord’s Supper or Memorial) Paul said: “For as often as you eat this loaf and drink this cup, you keep proclaiming the death of the Lord, until he arrives” (The Bible, 1. Corinthians 11:26). “As often” must not mean many times a year. It can mean annually (once in a year).

How often is the Memorial of Jesus Christ’s death to be commemorated?

If we commemorate a wedding anniversary or another important event in our life, how often are we doing it? Once in a year on the anniversary date, isn’t it?

Or if a whole nation commemorates a specific event. Like an important day in its history, how often is this done? Once a year on the anniversary date! With the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ it is the same.

The Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ replaced an annual celebration

Should the Memorial of Jesus Christ’s death, the Lord’s Supper or Lord’s Evening Meal, be commemorated also once a year? Once a year on the anniversary date would be consistent with the fact, that Jesus Christ instituted the Lord’s evening meal (the Lord’s Supper or Memorial) exactly at the time of the Jewish Passover. Exactly on the date and evening, when all the Jews (Jesus Christ was born as a Jew and lived among Jews) had this yearly celebration. The Jewish Passover was celebrated once a year. Very important to know is also, that the Jewish Passover was also a very important Memorial. But every Jew, who have become a Christian, don’t celebrate anymore this formerly very important Memorial. Because the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ (the Lord’s Supper or Lord’s Evening Meal) replaced this annual Memorial. No Christian must observe today the Jewish Passover. The Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ is the only event, which Christians must memorialize. Again yearly.

When is the Lord’s evening meal (the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ or the Lord’s Supper) to be commemorated?

If we commemorate an important event in our life, such as a wedding anniversary, when do we commemorate it? Is it not on that day, on which this important event in our life happened? Would you commemorate your wedding anniversary on any other day? In case you would, what would your mate think and feel?

Let’s take another example. If a nation commemorates an important event in its history, when is it done? Would it be reasonable to commemorate it on another day? If we would commemorate such an important event not exactly on this day, when it happened, what would other people think about it? Or let’s take the example that we would get free of work, because of this special memorial day. Can we tell our employer on a totally different day, that we take off from work, because we want to commemorate this Memorial day?

The same is with the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ. The Memorial of Jesus Christ’s death should take place at exactly the same day when Jesus Christ died.

We know exactly the date when Jesus Christ instituted the Memorial (the Lord’s Supper or the Lord’s evening meal)

Jesus Christ instituted the Memorial of his death (the Lord’s evening meal or Supper) on Nisan 14, according to the biblical Jewish calendar that was common in the first century. Jesus Christ also died on Nisan 14 (in the afternoon about three o’clock). Why that? Because in the first century the Jewish day began at sundown and extended until the following sundown. So Jesus Christ died exactly on the same Jewish calendar day. but when is Nisan 14 in our calendar?

Is the Lord’s Evening Meal, the Lord’s Supper, the Memorial always on the same day?

On what day on our calendar should the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ (the Lord’s Supper, Lord’s Evening Meal) be observed? Is the right time for the Memorial 2 1/2 days before Easter, Thursday evening? It can be, but this is not always the case. Why? The month of Nisan started with the sunset after the new Moon nearest the spring equinox became visible in Jerusalem. 14 days thereafter is the Memorial date. Because of this the Memorial day is not a fixed day in our calendar. The Memorial can be on a different day from year-to-year. For example: the Memorial of an important event, such as a wedding anniversary is also normally from year-to-year on another day. The same is true with the day of the Memorial of Jesus Christ’s death.

Can we celebrate the Memorial, Lord’s Evening Meal, Lord’s Supper according the guidelines of the Bible everywhere?

If we live according to the guidelines of the Bible, we want to celebrate the Memorial, the Lord’s evening meal, the Lord’s supper in the right way and on the exact right day. Now, from the Bible we can learn, how we should commemorate the death of Jesus Christ. But not every so-called Christian religion commemorates the death of Jesus Christ according to the date and guidelines of the Bible. But Jehovah’s Witnesses do.
Once each year Jehovah’s Witnesses memorialize the death of Jesus Christ worldwide with many guests on that evening which corresponds to Nisan 14th. What is more, also exactly in the same way the Bible commands us to do. Exactly on that day and evening, Nisan 14, Jehovah’s Witnesses gather together all over the world for the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ.
