Gardan would have loved to join the anticipated throngs who would welcome the man called Jesus, but he could not. Duty called. Gardan busied himself in preparing a good lunch for his son and daughter, who, with his son's friend, were going to join the multitudes and wait for this Man of Miracles to arrive. Gardan could never have imagined that he was preparing the most famous lunch in the history of mankind. Here is their story.
