Wesley's Notes for Luke 22:19


22:19 And he took bread - Namely, some time after, when supper was ended, wherein they had eaten the paschal lamb. This is my body - As he had just now celebrated the paschal supper, which was called the passover, so in like figurative language, he calls this bread his body. And this circumstance of itself was sufficient to prevent any mistake, as if this bread was his real body, any more than the paschal lamb was really the passover.

    This verse to me suggest that we mast remember Jesus Our Lord each and every minus of our life. that bread that gave His disaples is the bread of life and remember when Jesus tought hw to pray,He said "God give us our daily bread", which daily bread Jesus Himself. He took bread and gave thanks is the lesson as human being mast always give thanks to Heavenly Father in every thing that is good and relative to our spiritual life,as Jesus did. When He told them that was His body He tried to emphasis that every time you eat bread remember me.
