Matthew 26:26 (ANIV)
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”
TIME OF DAY:
An oil lamp (above the characters & out of view) provides a warm yellow glow that illuminates this scene.
In the back row, from left to right: James (son of Zebedee), Simon/Peter, Jesus the Christ, John (son of Zebedee and brother of James), Thaddaeus/Judas (son of James).
In the front row, from left to right & with their backs to us: Matthew/Levi the tax collector, Thomas/Didymus (”doubting Thomas”), James/Cleopas (son of Alphaeus), Bartholomew/Nathaniel.
The complete list of the 12 apostles can be found in Matthew 10:2-4 (ANIV) which reads:
‘These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon (who is called Peter) and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.’
This is a relatively simple scene, utilizing characters I have designed for previous cartoon illustrations.
