Last Supper / Seder Meal with Women and Children, Borghese Gallery



This Seder Meal includes the 3 Mary's and several nieces and nephews .... The Gospel of John places other women (The Three Marys), at the cross. It states that Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.[Jn. 19:25] It is uncertain whether the Gospel of John totally refers to three or four women at the cross. References to the women are also made in Matthew 27:56 and Mark 15:40 (which also mentions Salome) and comparing these references they all seem to include Mary Magdalene

  1. That meal in the Gospels before Messiah's death was not a Seder meal.
