    <img src=:” title=”Question” /> Was the last supper consider the first mass said? Also Christ was Jewish how did the Catholics get to say the Catholic Church was made by Christ,would’nt the Jewish religion have claim to that?Also what does mass stand for?I always thougth it meant “a congregate of people” is that correct.

    Yes, the Last Supper is considered to be the first Mass.

    The Catholic Church, in a sense, is an extension of Judaism. To be more precise it is the fulfillment.

    And Mass comes from Latin meaning “to send out”. What I was taught was that it means celebration. “Church” means a congregate of people. It comes from the Greek ekklesia.
