Many people do not know that there are hundreds of planets beyond our solar system. These planets beyond our solar system are commonly called exo-planets as they orbit a star other than our own sun. Most people are familiar with the planets in our solar system (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune – Pluto is not a planet anymore!) but not exo-planets. Amazingly by February 2012 there have been 758 exo-planets that have been discovered.

The last supper is famous for being Christ’s last meal with his disciples before his crucifixion. “And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take eat; this is My body.” Then he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sin”. (Matt 26: 26-28).

Perhaps less famously known is that Jesus Christ not only broke Holy Communion before His crucifixion but again after He resurrected from the dead. “Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them.” (Lk 24: 30)
