In one of His ministry’s final acts, Jesus established a ceremony which memorializes His death.  It consists of unleavened bread and fruit of the vine. The bread represents the body of Jesus, the fruit of the vine His blood.   Jesus instructed the disciples to remember Him as they consumed this simple meal (Luke 22:19).  Though not bodily present at the memorial’s institution, the apostle Paul later relates that a disciple proclaims the Lord’s death when they partake of this simple meal (1 Corinthians 11:26).
