The biggest thing to get your mind around is that everyone at the "supper clubs" were reclining. Oddly enough, you never see depictions of the Last Supper with everyone reclining.

Heh. When I was in Italy looking at cathedral paintings commissioned by the de Medicis, it struck me just how much the artists were asked to alter their subject matter to fit the audience -- the characters in the paintings wore modern clothing, and upper-class finery to boot.
