"Jesus’ Swan Song?" Your Thoughts?

I want to give you a passage from Mark 14:

22In the course of their meal, having taken and blessed the bread, he broke it and gave it to them. Then he said,

Take, this is my body.
23-24Taking the chalice, he gave it to them, thanking God, and they all drank from it. He said,

This is my blood,
God’s new covenant,
Poured out for many people.

25″I’ll not be drinking wine again until the new day when I drink it in the kingdom of God.”

26They sang a hymn and then went directly to Mount Olives.

Now, let’s keep one thing in mind.  This song occurs at a time when it is obvious that Jesus knows that His time living in his eartly body is about over.  He knsow that soon He will be denied by his closest friends, ratted out by another, and placed on a cross to endure absolute torture.

Now…let’s reflect on the last verse of this passage:

26They sang a hymn and then went directly to Mount Olives.

The question is simply this:

“What do you take away from this verse?  What does it mean to you?”

No wrong answers – but your answers may assist me in a new Worship project that I am working on right now.  I know many of you read my blog posts but choose to remain silent when it comes to comments…and I respect that.  If you have a few brief moments…please break your silence for this post.  It would mena the world to me.  Whether you decide to answer or not, would you also concider forwarding this to other via facebook, twitter, or other means by using the “Share This” icon below?

I appreciate the support and encouragement you each give me – and look forward to your help on this project.
