Cenacle (Coenaculum - Last Supper)

Jerusalem

The Cenacle is in the Old City on Mount Zion.

The Cenacle was the first Christian Church.
Many events took place here as described in the New Testament
- preparation for the celebration of Jesus' final Passover meal
- the washing of his disciples' feet
- certain resurrection appearances of Jesus
- the gathering of the disciples after the Ascension of Jesus
- the election of Saint Matthias as apostle
- the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples on the day of Pentecost.
The building that now stands on the site is only the most recent in a long and storied history.
