The Greatest Gift: The Eucharist, Part II

This is my body…this cup is the new covenant in my blood, which will be shed for you.”

Matthew 26:26-28
Mark 14:22-24
Luke 22:14-20
Cf. 1 Corinthians 11:23-25


Part I of this series ended with showing where Jesus himself says the bread and wine are his Body and Blood.  Here in Part II we will use the Old Testament and Jewish Tradition to help us understand how the Jews saw the bread as more than just bread.
