Jesus sat down with the twelve. 
As they were eating, Jesus took bread,
      blessed and broke 
it, 
      gave it to the disciples
              and said,
      "Take, eat; this is My body."  

Then He took the cup, gave thanks,
and gave it to them, saying,
     "Drink from it, all of you.  
     This is My blood of the new covenant, 
     which is shed for many
     for the remission of sins." 

                         --- Matthew 26:26-28
