What Is the Holy Communion?
Jesus established the observance of Holy Communion before His death on the cross. Like baptism and footwashing, it is a sacrament the Lord commanded believers to keep in order to have life in Him.
Jesus held a final supper with His beloved disciples during the Passover feast in Jerusalem. He took a loaf of unleavened bread, broke it and told them to take it and eat, for this was His body. Then the Lord Jesus took a cup filled with juice from the fruit of the vine and commanded them to drink, for it was His blood (Mt 26:17-30).
The Holy Communion (also called the Lord's Supper) is a means for Jesus' followers to remember His death until He comes again (1 Cor 11:24-26). Through the Holy Communion, the Lord also provided a way for us to remain spiritually connected with Him.
