In most situations where people gather for one event or another, there are those whose job entails preparing the place in advance. So it was as Jesus gathered with His disciples on Holy Thursday to celebrate Passover, followed by what we have come to know as The Last Supper. Mark 14: 12-15 briefly describes how preparations were made for this event, but no details are given. Matthew 26:17-19 tells us that Jesus not only instructed His disciples to find a "certain man (in Jerusalem) and tell him, "I will keep the Passover at your house with My disciples", He implies that His disciples prepared everything. Kind of like, "guess who's coming for dinner"! I've often wondered about those who serve "behind the scenes", faithfully going about the task with no fanfare.
