In the Easter story the Upper Room was where Jesus and his disciples celebrated the Passover. (Letter L and Letter I) Most houses had living space upstairs. The arrangements for finding and preparing the upper room are interesting. Jesus told his disciples to look out for a man carrying water on his head, who would lead them to the place where they were to prepare the Passover meal.


It was usually the women, who fetched water; a man carrying water would stand out from the crowd. All the details are in the Gospels (Letter G). Matthew 26:17-19, Mark 14:12-16 and Luke 22:7-13
