Before the communion..but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.(Philippians 2:7-8
Why did Jesus form this sacrament on Thursday?Since He will die on the cross and leave us, He wanted to unit us in Him forever. Incarnation : Jesus ( the creator) turned the divine nature to human nature. Is it real body and blood?The Eucharist sacrament , Jesus (the creator) , turned the bread and wine into divine nature.
