“And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;”
King James Version (KJV)
26:27 And he took the cup - Called by the Jews the cup of thanksgiving; which the master of the family used likewise to give to each after supper.
Mt 26:27 He took the cup, and gave thanks. The cup was provided for the celebration of the paschal feast, and was at hand as well as the bread. Drink ye all of it. Observe that he simply said of the bread, "Take, eat" (Mt 26:26); but of the wine, "Drink ye all", as if he intended to uproot the Catholic innovation of denying the cup to the laity.
