The presence of Christ guides us and helps us to become better people. So in order to connect with Christ we take the Holy bread and wine that represents his flesh and blood as he sacrifice his life for us.

Jewish people celebrate the Passover with the Seder Plate which contain symbolic foods eaten and displayed at the ‘Passover Seder’. We preach the Lord’s teachings through the bible, his 12 disciples followed him around learning about his ways and teachings. After Jesus sacrificed his life his disciples spread his words to the people in which who would listen to them and wrote down their own sightings in the Bible. This is known as the New Testament. This is similar with the Eucharist, we celebrate our saviour, where we eat symbolic food which are the body and blood of Christ (bread and wine).

Holy Communion

Transcript: What is Holy Communion? Holy Communion The seriousness of which their Lord in Heaven descended to earth to suffer for sins The full extent of kindness which He shared with all the unworthy The height He rose to by rising from death and leading His people During Holy Communion many Christians gather at church and usually first praise God and Jesus using Worship music. Psalms and hymns are then spoken aloud before prayers for various things. The Lord's Table is then readied for Holy Communion in which bread and wine is handed out to all in attendance and asked to either listen or participate in the next bible reading that usually is connected to the Last Supper or Good Friday. During the last supper, after reading the previous quote from Matthew's gospel, we know that Jesus told his disciples that whilst eating this bread and drinking this wine we are remembering his sacrifice during Good Friday. He encouraged during the last supper that from then on everyone take holy communion to remember all that happened on the day of the last supper and on Good Friday. Whilst partaking in Holy Communion Christians are able to fully appreciate the extent and fullness of Jesus' sacrifice for all people. This means during communion those who participate are encouraged to reflect on all the good Jesus did for them. Some particular examples are listed below. Water has been used for baptizing in most cases, for a special reason too, for water symbolizes the 'drowning' of one's old life and the birth of their new. Holy Communion - or Eucharist - is a noun in the English language and can be described in four different ways in a typical Oxford Dictionary, these are : 1. the sacrament of Holy Communion; the sacrifice of the Mass; the Lord's Supper. 2. the consecrated elements of the Holy Communion, especially the bread. 3. the giving of thanks; thanksgiving. 4. spiritual communion with God. But it other languages such as Greek it is known as eucharístia and means gratefulness and thanksgiving. What is the Connection Between Last Supper and Good Friday with Holy Communion? Church Service of Holy Communion Jesus' Sacrifice Why Do Christians Celebrate Holy Communion? The Chalice and Grapes represent the forgiveness that Christians receive through Jesus' blood. Wine can also represent joy. Symbols of Holy Communion White is the color used for baptism because it symbolizes the cleansing of one's sins. During Holy Communion Christians remember all the good deeds done by their Lord, such as: He blessed the bread and broke it. Then he gave it to his disciples and said, "Take this and eat it. This is my body." ... "Take this and drink it. This is my blood and with it God makes his agreement with you. It will be poured out so many people will have their sins forgiven" - Matthew 26:26-29 Wheat represents the body of Jesus Christ and his sacrifice. Bread is also symbolized as life. In the Old Testament of the Bible, fire represents the 'purifying' presence of God.
