Good papers will have a clear thesis statement, be clearly written, have few typos, and demonstrate that the student has reflected on the text.

This passage along with other similar accounts from the Gospels of Matthew and Mark are considered the institution of the sacrament of the Holy Communion. Jesus had a simple meal with his disciples....
