They're trying not to laugh....they are referring to the Transubstantiation that occurs during communion...

I'll agree that Jesus' wording was pretty weird though....hehe....

Eating the bread and drinking the wine are symbolic. It is an overt act a person does to manifest their faith.

Go see "Passion of Christ" and you'll get it, hehe... Don't worry, I know you're in Hong Kong, so there likely isn't too much main stream Christianity there....

We eat the host (small wafer thing) and drink wine, which symbolize Jesus' body and blood, respectively.

Ok, in order to join Christ's kingdom in heaven, and absolve one's self, he invited his followers to symbolically drink of his blood, and eat of his flesh, to become more divine.

In the ceremony, the wine is spiritually transformed into the blood of Christ, whereas the wafer (or bread) is spiritually transformed into the flesh of Christ.

Does that help?

This is what Jesus says when they do that ceremony.

Take this all of you and drink from it. This is my blood of the new and ever lasting covenenant witch has been given up for you.

It goes soemthing like that. Jesus passes the cup of wine around the table and all of his disciples drink it. It symbols his blood and the new and ever lasting covenant. The disciples will follow him for eternity.


Then Jesus passes out a wafer and says the same thing. Take this all of you and eat from it. This is my body witch has been given up for you.

So its them pledging there ever lasting faith to them by accepting his "body"

Make sense chief?

Drunk, I get the distinct feeling that you're somehow trying to belittle Christianity, make it look bad, or make people who believe in it look bad. All of your remarks have been negative, and it kind of seems like you're not looking for the info, you're just trying to pull it out of us so you can make Christianity look bad. I dont think that's a good thing to do at all, please have some respect. If this isn't your intention, I apologize, but that's what its starting to look like.

I could never see Christianity looking bad, your comments merely give me the idea that that's what you're trying to do. Things like:

"Yaeh so it was a covern or a some sort sadistic cult then?"
"Spiritually u say so was he imposing that he wanted his disciples tp be cannibals."
"So its a hoax then>???????"

Like I said, if that isn't your intention, I apologize. But the way you say things makes me think you're not probing us Christians merely for information.
