Jesus and disciples sitting at a table, eating, talking. Jesus takes a loaf of bread, and prays quietly, the disciples quieten down. He breaks it.

Jesus
Take this and eat; this is my body (Bread is passed solemnly around. He takes a cup). Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. (They pass cup around, a little confused) I will be with you only a short time longer.

Peter
Where are you going, Lord? I will come with you. In fact, I will lay down my life for you!

Jesus
No Peter. In fact, tonight you will three times deny knowing me. Listen, all of you, let me give you a new command; love one another. Love one another in the same way I have loved you. That is how everyone will know that you are my disciples. Come, I need to pray.
