During his 3 1/2 hears of 'field service' Jesus made hundreds, perhaps thousands of disciples. Amongst them, his closest associates, known as apostles numbered 12, and to these Jesus gave special attention and consideration.
The 12 apostles, including Judas Iscariot, had the privilege of attending Jesus' Last Supper, and it is here that Jesus instituted the memorial of his death.
"Keep doing this in remembrance of me"
The question is, why are 16,000,000 people doing it today?
The Society is so hot on everything that Jesus did and said as being for them only, why do they make a huge media outburst (KM's) about inviting everyone? What exactly is the 'Memorial Season' and why is this phrase used when it is not in the Scriptures?
If we assume that everyone at the Memorial on Nisan 14, was annointed, and was going to rule in heaven, then what purpose is there in inviting everyone we know?
Besides, the Society don't like large gatherings, Jesus only had his 12 apostles.
Later on in Acts, we learn that upwards of 500 disciples witness Jesus being taken to heaven on a cloud. Why weren't they invited?
Anyone got any answers?
