Maundy Thursday | Reflection on the Last Supper Woodcarving

April 5, 2023 by The staff of The Upper Room (Nashville, Tennessee)

As we walk with Jesus through this Holy Week, we invite you to join us for a brief, 15-minute video reflection on The Last Supper, using The Upper Room Chapel’s woodcarving replica of da Vinci’s masterpiece.

The Last Supper Woodcarving, the focal point of The Upper Room Chapel, was commissioned for the Chapel's opening in 1953. The carving reveals a bit of the social history of The Upper Room Chapel—a place “open to all people for the worship of God.”

The artwork captures the moment when Jesus says to the disciples, “One of you will betray me.” Their immediate responses are revealed in the expressions of their faces, hands, and bodies. All the while, Jesus remains calm with his hands open to welcome all who are weary and burdened.
