23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” (1 Cor. 11:23,24)
As Paul continued to remind the Corinthians about the origin of the Lord’s Supper, he moved from the backdrop of treachery (1 Cor. 11:23a) to the historical inception of this ongoing ordinance. He said that Jesus took bread. This, in itself, was a part of the Passover tradition that occurred after the second cup of wine was poured and passed.
