Hundreds of years later Jesus is celebrating passover with his friends, the disciples, at what we know now as the Last Supper.
And that is why we celebrate the Eucharist today.
The next day Jesus is arrested and sentenced to death. As Jesus asked, the disciples continued breaking the bread and sharing the wine, and it soon became known as the Eucharist.
Given up for me? Where is he going?
During their meal, Jesus took the bread and gave thanks as usual, but then he then broke the bread and gave it to his disciples, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” Luke 22: 19-20. The disciples were confused. Given up for me? Where is he going?
This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.
In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is my blood, which is poured out for you.” The same questions appeared in the disciples minds.
This cup is my blood, which is poured out for you.
Poured out for me? Where is he going?
