“While they were eating, Jesus took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it He broke it, gave it to the disciples and said “Take, eat; this is my body”. Then He took the cup and after giving thanks He gave it to them saying, “Drink from 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
