The three Synoptic Gospels and the First Epistle to the Corinthians include the account of the institution of the Eucharist in which Jesus takes bread, breaks it and gives it to the Apostles, saying: "This is my body which is given for you". The Gospel of John does not include this episode, but tells of Jesus washing the feet of the Apostles, giving the new commandment "to love one another as I have loved you", and has a detailed farewell discourse by Jesus, calling the Apostles who follow his teachings "friends and not servants", as he prepares them for his departure.
Scholars have looked to the Last Supper as the source of early Christian Eucharist traditions. Others see the account of the Last Supper as derived from 1st-century eucharistic practice as described by Paul in the mid-50s. More
An early certificate by José Gudiol, Instituto Amatller de Arte Hispanico, Barcelona, dated 06.12.1979, states an artist named ‘Maestro de Ameyugo’, who is probably identical with the ‘Maestro de Oña’ or Fray Alonso de Zamora. This painter was first mentioned among documents of the Benedictine monastery of Oña in 17.02.1476. it is assumed that this painter owned a workshop in Oña and was regularly commissioned for works on behalf of the monastery.
More recent comparisons with the paintings by Diego de la Cruz (f. 1482-1500) and other works from the Museum of Burgos have also proven that this panel must have been painted by an artist active within the School of Burgos. More
