Da vinci’s “Last Supper” on hi definition to go online

This morning a company called HAL2000  is hoarding a high resolution image that support 16 billion pixels (1600 times better than a normal hi res picture from a SLR Camera) of the “Last Supper ” by Da Vinci. My first impression on this particular painting goes back to my school days at my hometown. At school before every test all of us un to the chapel to pray and also during the short periods of singing classes one gets to gaze at this awesome image with intrigue. It was Dan brown book ” The Da Vinci Code “ that really provided more information to non Christians  like me about the background and the inner details of this painting. The book has been a best seller in maximum number of countries than any of the contemporary work. For those who have not read this book, there are more betters reviews of the same online .

Then for the more curious people there is another book by Dan Burstein “Secrets of the code” that provides a non fictional code of the secrets of the infamous painting and the history behind it. More updates of the author can be found in this blog.

Also i would like to recommend a BBC video called “Breaking the code” that is worth a watch. There has been so much of controversy related to this painting and also debates on the validity. Latest among those is a theory that Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper might hide within it a depiction of Christ blessing the bread and wine with his disciples for the first Eucharist.

  1. Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” holds no secrets. First off, Dan Brown’s book is at best a middle schoolers attempt at a novel. The picture, contrary to popular belief, is not actually of the first Eucharist, but the moment when Christ states that someone will betray him. All of the disciples are meticulously placed in precise locations based on certain scripture passages. Matthew 20:21 has the mother of the sons of Zebedee ask Jesus to have them sit at his right and left (which also shows that James and John are not his biological brothers, otherwise Matthew would’ve said Jesus’ mother not mother of the son’s of Zebedee). So in the painting it is James and John on his left and right, not Mary Magdalen. But, yes, all the disciples are sitting in certain spots for a reason, another example is that we know who Peter is because he’s next to the knife ie, Luke 22:48. Glad I could clear that up for you.
