"Do This in REMEMBRANCE of Me"

This is my father. Well, not literally. It’s a picture of my father. When someone shows you a photo you understand that it’s a picture of someone or something. And whenever I look at that picture I remember my father.

Jesus made a similar statement at the last supper. He took bread and said, “This is my body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” (Luke 22:19). He didn’t mean it was His actual body (because His hand was holding up the bread) but it was a picture of His body that would soon be sacrificed. They ate the bread to remember Him and what He did.

He took a cup of wine and said, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you” (Luke 22:20). He didn’t mean the wine was His literal His blood (because His blood was inside His body), but it was a picture of His blood that would be shed at the crucifixion.

Jesus was the “Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). So as He ate the Passover meal with His disciples, it was necessary for Him to change it. Do you know why? To find the answer click here: Understanding the Lord’s Supper”
