Why is the memorial of Jesus Christ death from Jehovah's Witnesses very important?

What is the Memorial or Anniversary of Jesus Christ's death?

The Memorial is also called Lord's Evening Meal or the Lord's Supper or Anniversary of Jesus Christ's death. The Memorial is a yearly meal commemorating the death of Jesus Christ.

Why is the Memorial of Jesus Christ's death from Jehovah's Witnesses very important?

This is because Jesus Christ himself commanded his disciples to memorialize his death. This is the only event that the son of God Jesus Christ commanded to memorialize. Jesus Christ said: "Keep doing this in remembrance of me" (The Bible, Luke 22:19). Every Christian, every real follower of Jesus Christ, will observe the commandment of Jesus to memorialize his death. But also everybody else should memorialize the death of Jesus Christ. Because the death of Jesus Christ can have far-reaching effects for everybody of us. Jesus Christ's death was fundamental for the very beautiful future, what the Bible prophecies. Because it was so important, Jesus Christ commanded to commemorate the memorial. So don't miss the Anniversary of Jesus Christ's death.

The Memorial (the Lord's Supper or Lord's evening meal): how often to be commemorated?

When Jesus Christ instituted the Memorial, he simply said: "Keep doing this in remembrance of me (The Bible, Luke 22:19)". At no time Jesus specifically stated how often the Memorial should be commemorated. Also no other disciple of Jesus Christ did. But the information on this page may help you to decide how often the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ should be commemorated.

What does the Apostle Paul write about the Lord's Evening Meal?

When the Apostle Paul wrote about the Lord's evening meal (the Lord's Supper or Memorial) Paul said: "For as often as you eat this loaf and drink this cup, you keep proclaiming the death of the Lord, until he arrives" (The Bible, 1. Corinthians 11:26). "As often" must not mean many times a year. It can mean annually (once in a year).

How often is the Memorial of Jesus Christ's death to be commemorated?

If we commemorate a wedding anniversary or another important event in our life, how often are we doing it? Once in a year on the anniversary date, isn't it?

Or if a whole nation commemorates as specific event. Like an important day in its history, how often is this done? Once a year on the anniversary date! With the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ it is the same. Why can we be so sure?

The Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ replaced an annual celebration

Should the Memorial, the Lord's Supper or Lord's Evening Meal, be commemorated also once a year? Once a year on the anniversary date would be consistent with the fact, that Jesus Christ instituted the Lord's evening meal (the Lord's Supper or Memorial) exactly at the time of the Jewish Passover. Exactly on the date and evening, when all the Jews (Jesus Christ was born as a Jew and lived among Jews) had this yearly celebration. The Jewish Passover was celebrated once a year. Very important to know is also, that the Jewish Passover was also a very important Memorial. But every Jew, who have become a Christian, don't celebrate anymore this formerly very important Memorial. Because the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ (the Lord's Supper or Lord's Evening Meal) replaced this annual Memorial. No Christian must observe today the Jewish Passover. The Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ is the only event, which Christians must memorialize. Again yearly like the Memorial of the Jewish Passover.

When is the Lord's evening meal (the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ or the Lord's Supper) to be commemorated?

If we commemorate an important event in our life, such as a wedding anniversary, when do we commemorate it? Is it not on that day, on which this important event in our life happened? If you would commemorate your wedding anniversary on any other day? In case you would, what would your mate think and feel?

Let's take another example. If a nation commemorates an important event in its history, when is it done? Would it be reasonable to commemorate it on another day? If we would commemorate such an important event not exactly on this day, when it happened, what would every other normal person think about it? Or let's take the example that we would get free of work, because of this special memorial day. Can we tell our employer on a totally different day, that we take off from work, because we want to commemorate this Memorial day?

The same thing is with the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ, also called the Lord's Supper or the Lord's evening meal. The Memorial should take place at exactly the same day when Jesus Christ introduced it. By the way: Jesus Christ died on the same day when he introduced the Memorial for his death. So the important event happened exactly on the date of the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ.

We know exactly the date when Jesus Christ introduced the Memorial (the Lord's Supper or the Lord's evening meal)

Jesus Christ instituted the Memorial of his death (the Lord's evening meal or Supper) on Nisan 14, according to the biblical Jewish calendar that was common in the first century. Jesus Christ also died on Nisan 14 (in the afternoon about three o'clock). Why that? Because in the first century the Jewish day began at sundown and extended until the following sundown. So Jesus Christ died exactly on the same Jewish calendar day. Jesus instituted the Memorial of his death after sundown on Nisan 14, at the beginning of this day (Nisan 14, 33 CE). But when is Nisan 14 in our calendar?

Is the Lord's Evening Meal, the Lord's Supper, the Memorial always on the same day?

On what day on our calendar should the Memorial of the death of Jesus Christ (the Lord's Supper, Lord's Evening Meal) be observed? Is the right time for the Memorial 2 1/2 days before Easter, Thursday evening? It can be, but this is not always the case. Why? The month of Nisan started with the sunset after the new Moon nearest the spring equinox became visible in Jerusalem. 14 days thereafter is the Memorial date. Because of this the Memorial day is not a fixed day in our calendar. The Memorial can be on a different day from year-to-year. For example: the Memorial of an important event, such as a wedding anniversary is also normally from year-to-year on another day. The same is true with the day of the Memorial of Jesus Christ's death. See for example the different days of the Memorial in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 (Anniversary, Lord's Supper, Lord's Evening Meal 2011-2017) at the end of this article.
