The Covenant Meal – Do This In Remberance of Me
The Lord’s Supper was the last meal that Jesus shared with His disciple before going to the Cross. It was the prophetic fulfillment of the Passover lambs that were slaughtered 2000 years previously in Egypt. Everyone who ate of the lamb and applied the blood to the lintels and door posts were saved from the angel of death. Likewise Jesus at this final meal, took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying …… this is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me. And in like manner, He took the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament or covenant [ratified] in My blood, which is shed (poured out) for you.
