Figure 236: „The Last Supper” with Jesus Christ in eight individual scenes marked in color. The red marking shows Jesus sitting at the table with his apostles for the Last Supper. Diagonally across from him sits Judas, one of the traitors of Jesus, in purple markings, who has a little Satan on his neck. Through the apostle Judas, who was sitting diagonally opposite and to the left of Jesus at the last supper, Jesus was able to find out his further future through Judas satanic knowledge. Above the apostles there are three paintings starting from left to right, Jesus in the oil garden in yellow, Jesus betrayal and capture in blue, and a scene with the crucifixion of Jesus in orange. With the ritual of the change of bread and wine at the „Last Supper”, the main characteristic of the Eucharist is the sanctification of human work, which has its free of sin author in the body of Christ. The bread that every believer can take at communion marks the spiritual nourishment on the way of life and work in the promised land, which is supposed to correspond to heaven. The wine symbolically corresponds to the work to be done.
The light green marking shows the apostles sitting to the right of Jesus with a dark background, which are apparently intended to visualize the original sin guilt of mankind at the Last Supper, which is then to be transferred to the reborn Christ as a sacrifice of mankind. To the left, viewed from Jesus in the middle, in light blue marking, however, there are those apostles located who reveal themselves through the light background as the apostles with the newly elected Bartholomew Christ. The dark red marking finally shows representations of carafes and animals, which are supposed to make their contribution to the Eucharist and to the further interpretation of the event, Cosimo Rosselli and Biagio d’Antonio, 1482, Sistine Chapel, Vatican, Rome.
Figure 237: The washing of the feet of the apostles by Jesus with the election of the new follower of Christ in red marking. Dark halos around the apostles' heads testify to the presence of Satan. The election of the new successor to Christ among the apostles was based on the back pain indicator, which Jesus impaired when he touched the apostle's feet. So, when he touched the foot that he is currently holding, no back pain can be perceived in Jesus, which can be recognized by the white robe of an apostle on Jesus' back in light green marking. In addition, the new Bartholomew Christ in light blue marking, chosen by Jesus himself, is the only one who is apparently wearing the roof of the building by a roof strut on his neck, which can be also understood as a symbolic vault of heaven, and thus also confirms his choice as Son of Man. Fresco by Giotto di Bondone in the Cappella degli Scrovegni, Padua.
Figure 244: „The Last Supper” with the betrayal of Jesus and the complicity of the Satan angel Peter, which is be revealed for the first time. In blue marking the episode in which Jesus is betrayed by Judas with a kiss and taken as a prisoner by soldiers. The angelic nature of Malchus lying on the ground can be recognized by Jesus' finger pointing and the outstretched, bare and left foot of Judas, in light green marking. In addition, the Satan angel Peter can be seen with Malchus lying on the ground, after he apparently cut off his right ear with intent. This meant, that the angelic and respected Malchus, who worked as a servant for Kajaphas, the high priest of Israel, could no longer insert a word for Jesus to the soldiers because of the severed ear, in order to avoid the arrest of Jesus by the soldiers. Therefore, Satan angel Peter becomes a accomplice at the arrest of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane, Cosimo Rosselli and Biagio d’Antonio, 1482, Sistine Chapel, Vatican, Rome.

Figure 245: „The Last Supper” with the episode of Jesus who died on the wooden cross and a prophecy. The orange marking depicts the crucified Jesus Christ and the consequences that are to be expected. John the Evangelist supports the Blessed Mother in a prophecy in light blue marking, and helps to alleviate the sufferings, that will affect the reborn Christ child because of the crucifixion and the death of Jesus Christ on the wooden cross. Due to the position of John's supporting hands, especially the back, chest and lungs are to be mentioned, which are therefore likely to be affected at the reborn Christ child. The background for this is the knowledge, that mankind' s sin guilt lies in the subsoil of the soil, in the biomass, which is contained in the renewable wood.
This fact becomes understandable in the light green marking, with the large tree visible in the foreground, which visualizes with its renewable wood the sin guilt of humanity. In addition, with the symbolically depicted mountain elevation in the form of a hump, which will be formed on the back of the reborn Christ child and lead to lifelong diseases and suffering. The two criminals crucified with Jesus and, according to tradition, condemned, testify to the gravity of the guilt of sin passed on to Jesus through his death on the wooden cross. And that means for the crucified Jesus that his soul has sunk to a criminal level. Over the cloud formation, towering in the background of the crucified Jesus, marked in red, heavy storms can be foreseen because of the passed over sin guilt.
