The Most Significant Event of the Year
On Thursday, March 24, 2005, an event will take place that no one will want to miss. That is the day when over six million of Jehovah’s Witnesses around the world will meet together with millions of their friends in recognition of the last evening meal that Jesus had with his disciples. In accordance with Jesus’ instructions, unleavened bread and red wine will be passed at each meeting, and the meaning of this ceremony will be explained.—Mark 14:22-24.
For many people this event is known as the Lord’s Supper, or the Lord’s Evening Meal. Jehovah’s Witnesses call it the Memorial of Christ’s death, and it is the most important event in their yearly calendar. It is a vital reminder of the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made in behalf of sinful mankind when he died. (John 3:16; 1 John 2:2) After his final meal, Jesus was arrested and later died on a stake as though he were a common evildoer.—John 19:17, 18.
The public will be warmly welcomed at this special meeting. Please check with Jehovah’s Witnesses locally for the exact time and the location in your area.
