Show me where Christ specifically said he was instituting a tradition, knowing that being nailed to the cross was going to end the traditions of men. That would be extremely hypocritical and contradictory of Him to do, don't ya think?
"For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed." ~John 6:55~
The word "indeed" means "of truth". What is Truth? The Bible says that the Word of God is Truth..John 17:17 and that the Spirit (Holy Ghost) is Truth..1 John 5:6..Mark 10:38... "But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the CUP (The Cross/Death) that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with(Holy Ghost, NOT water)?"...Matthew 26:39 "And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this CUP (The Cross/Death) pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt." Our communion with Christ comes when we are baptized in Truth and become "witnesses" of that Truth. The word "WITNESSES" is #3144 Strong's in the Greek, and it means "MARTYR"...which is to be BLOOD baptized or put to death. When we are made partakers of Truth, we will drink from that cup, and we will know Christ in the power of His resurrection and in the fellowship of His sufferings.
The word "indeed" again is alethes and it means "of truth"; We eat and drink of Truth. This is the TRUE Communion the Bible speaks of. Communion is NOT crackers and juice, as most try to teach today. We partake of Communion when we partake of the Word/Truth. Jesus said I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. The Holy Ghost is also called the Spirit of Truth. The Bible says that God's Word is Truth. Eat flesh and drink blood was an old ancient term that meant to undergo a death.
Matthew 26:26-28-- Jesus took bread and brake it and said. Take, eat, this is my body -- and he took the cup and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; for this is my blood of the new testament--
break bread - a Jewish term that meant to fellowship together
drink of a cup - an old testament idiom meaning to undergo a difficult ordeal (in particular, a violent death)
John 6:53 -- Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
"eat flesh and drink blood" - an ancient Jewish saying meaning to be satiated with a slaughter or participate in death; the blade of a sword was called the mouth and was said, "to eat flesh and drink blood" in battle.
