Jesus ate the Passover meal with His disciples, saying He had eagerly desired to eat this Passover meal with them before He suffered...saying He would not eat again "until the Kingdom of God comes. (Luke 22:7-16) They sang part of Psalm 118:22, ..."Jesus is the capstone that the builders rejected" Jesus was crucified as the "Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world" (John 1:29) Communion is remembering of His sacrifice as the perfect Passover Lamb and the fulfilling of the new covenant between God & man. (Ephesians 2:11-13) Unleavened bread is a symbol of Passover. Leaven represents sin. (Luke 12:1) The picture of Jesus is the bread or matzah meaning without sin. Jesus said He was the bread which comes down from heaven, The Living Bread! All of the feasts of the Lord are shadows of things to come. (Colossians 2:17) Be ready for time is short and HE IS COMING...AGAIN!!!
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
