- Mark says Jesus asked two disciples to prepare the Passover meal and then Jesus “came with the Twelve.” Since Jesus had female disciples, and since meal preparation was a traditionally female role, the two disciples attending the Last Supper quite possibly were women.
- Matthew also says disciples prepared the Last Supper. He does say “the Twelve” attended but he doesn’t say only “the Twelve” attended. In the Eucharist institution narrative, Jesus takes the bread and cup, blesses them and distributes them to the disciples (not apostles) and tells the disciples to “do this in memory of me.”
- Luke mentions apostles attending, but doesn’t mention it was just the twelve male ones – allowing that there could be female apostles whom Jesus selected at a different time than the twelve male ones. He also doesn’t say that apostles exclusively attended.
- John just says disciples attended.
By the way, the "because I said so" tact isn't working either. Having failed using logic and then power, a new tactic is in use now. A small army of people repeats a few talking points that usually involve belittling, taunting, disparaging, or damning others. They are trained to "troll" the internet and bombard anything that might support women's ordination or other topics they believe are "unfaithful." Sometimes, the same person assumes multiple names to appear as though there are more people outraged by the concept of female ordinations than are. Regardless, you start to see the same angry rants in multiple places by the same people. This crowd has been the source of sending me "hate mail" and similarly spirited comments to my blog. Basically, logic failed, power failed so now they are resorting to bullying tactics and name-calling.
