“Now, as they were eating, Jesus took the bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, ‘Take, eat; this is my body.’”  And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink of it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.’” (Matthew 26:26-28)
