Triidium 2015 – Maundy Thursday

1 Comment

A group of thirteen friends meet for a meal in an upper room. One washes the feet of his companions. He then breaks bread with a blessing to share around. Giving thanks for the wine that they are drinking, he then shares it around.

One of them has been turned and is to betray him. The rest will desert him.

The friends then go to a garden. They find it hard to stay awake, whilst the one who had washed the feet prays. The Betrayer comes with a crowd to arrest the him.

After a sword had been grabbed and the ear of someone had been cut of, the Betrayer kisses his friend, calling him Rabbi. The rest of the group flees away.
