"Last Supper" nghĩa là gì?

'Last Supper' nghĩa là (tôn giáo) lần cuối cùng Chúa Jesus dùng bữa với các tông đồ trước khi bị đóng đinh; bữa tiệc ly (cũng gọi là Lord's Supper).

Ví dụ
‘Last Supper’ mural in Fort Myers shows homeless (vô gia cư) Jesus, offers message of acceptance (sự chấp nhận, chấp thuận).

In artist Ross Boone’s take on that famous painting, Jesus is portrayed as a homeless man offering a McDonald’s hamburger to a stray dog (con chó đi lạc). Judas is a mega-church pastor with a symbolically closed Bible. And the rest of the apostles (tông đồ) include a prostitute (đĩ, điếm), a skateboarder (người sử dụng ván trượt), a Middle Eastern mother and her child, a Haitian immigrant (nhập cư), an androgynous (ái nam ái nữ) woman, an abused (bị lạm dụng) girl and a transgender (chuyển giới) man. Boone insists (khăng khăng, nhất quyết) he’s not trying to offend (làm cho ai bực mình/khó chịu, xúc phạm) anyone with “The Modern Last Supper,” though. Far from it.

Leonardo da Vinci gave the world the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper. Now, a British researcher suggests an untreated eye ailment (ốm đau, ốm vặt) may have helped the Renaissance genius perfect these and other masterpieces (tác phẩm lớn, kiệt tác). After analyzing a series of paintings and sculptures (tượng điêu khắc) that are thought to depict  (miêu tả) the likeness of Italian painter da Vinci (1452-1519), investigator Christopher Tyler concluded that the artist appears to have suffered from chronic, if intermittent, "lazy eye" due to strabismus (tật lác mắt), a misalignment of the eyes. But rather than undermine his ability to render lifelike imagery on a flat surface, the condition was probably a creative boon, Tyler theorized.

* This 15th century Portuguese painting of the last supper struck me because the Apostle immediately to Jesus' right look definitely feminine. Dan Brown wove a Leonardo da Vince painting with a similarly feminine Apostle into his blockbuster "The DaVinci Code."
