JST, Matthew 26:22, 24–25. Compare Matthew 26:26–28; JST, Mark 14:20–25

Jesus first breaks the sacramental bread then blesses it. The sacrament is in remembrance of Jesus’ body and blood.

22 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread and brake it, and blessed it, and gave to his disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is in remembrance of my body which I give a ransom for you.

24 For this is in remembrance of my blood of the new testament, which is shed for as many as shall believe on my name, for the remission of their sins.

25 And I give unto you a commandment, that ye shall observe to do the things which ye have seen me do, and bear record of me even unto the end.
