The 'Last Pesach'
The Seder Night had come to an end.
After they had sung a hymn, Jesus and his disciples left the Upper Room, making their way eastwards, out of the city gates, across the Kidron valley and into the Garden of Gethsemene, on the slopes of the Mount of Olives.
Then came the night of loneliness, of anguish, the betrayal by his disciples as, one by one, they deserted him at his hour of need.
Jesus is then arrested and put on trial, at the hands of the Jewish court, the Sanhedrin and by the Roman governor, Pontius Pilate.
He was then scourged and mocked, then led to Golgotha, the place of the skull, to his death on the cross.
