An interesting fact about the Last Supper is that the main focus of the meal (Passover Meal) was the Lamb. The Passover lamb would be sacrificed and the family would eat it at the meal. There is no mention of this lamb at the Last Supper and once the Temple was destroyed 30 years later, all Jewish Passover Meals were absent the lamb because sacrifices were no longer possible. They would, and still do, put a roasted lamb bone on the plate to remind them that the Temple is still missing.
