Maundy Thursday: April 9, 2020

Posted by FBC Sylvania Georgia on Thursday, April 9, 2020

The day before Good Friday is known as Maundy Thursday. The term “Maundy” is derived from the Latin word mandatum (commandment). The term refers to the commandment given by Jesus at the Last Supper: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.” (John 13:34)
