AGÁPE SUPPER

OUR MAUNDY THURSDAY MEAL

Maundy Thursday, also known as Holy Thursday, commemorates the Last Supper when Jesus shared the Passover meal with his disciples on the night before he was crucified. Epiphany has a long-held tradition of celebrating this special day beginning with a simple and communal Agápe supper.

Agápe Menu

No recipes have come down to us from the time of Christ; however, knowing what raw materials were available to the Jews of Palestine in that period and what dishes were mentioned in the Bible, we have an idea of what Christians may have eaten at an Agápe (love) feast.

  • Fish

  • Dried and fresh fruits (no citrus, as oranges and lemons were rare and very expensive)

  • Olives

  • Almonds

  • Different kinds of cheeses

  • Lentils

  • Cucumbers with yogurt

  • Couscous

  • Tabbouleh

  • Hummus

  • Bread

 

For the bread, flatbread, pita, or matzoth (or all three) might have been eaten.

 

Wine for the adults (and grape juice for the children)  and water would be the custom.
