    y habiendo dado gracias, lo parti, y dijo: Tomad, comed; esto es mi cuerpo que por vosotros es partido; haced esto en memoria de mí.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 11:24

    Verse 24. This do in remembrance of me.] The papists believe the
    apostles were not ordained priests before these words. Si quis dixerit, illis verbis, hoc facite in meam commemorationem, Christum non instituisse apostolos sacerdotes, anathema sit: "If any one shall say that in these words, 'This do in remembrance of me,' Christ did not ordain his apostles priests, let him be accursed." Conc. Trid. Sess. 22. Conc. 2. And he that does believe such an absurdity, on such a ground, is contemptible.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 24. And when he had given thanks , etc.] So (
    Luke 22:19), but ( Matthew 26:26) and ( Mark 14:22) say he blessed; not the bread, but his Father; for to bless and give thanks is one and the same thing with the Jews; so we often read of their blessing for the fruits of the earth, for wine and bread; concerning which they have these rules f231 , he that blesseth for the wine, before food, frees the wine that is after food; he that blesseth for the dessert before food, frees the dessert after food; tph l[ rb , he that blesseth for the bread, frees the dessert, for the dessert does not free the bread; or excuse from a blessing for that again; if they sit at eating, everyone blesses for himself; if they lie (upon couches) lkl rbm dja , one blesses for them all; when wine is brought to them whilst they are eating, everyone blesses for himself: if after food, one blesses for them all; our Lord conformed to these rules, he blessed and gave thanks for the bread separately, and he afterwards blessed, or gave thanks for the wine; and as he and his disciples lay at table, he blessed and gave thanks for them all; for this is not to be understood of any consecration of the bread by a certain form of words, changing its nature and property, and converting it into the body of Christ; but either of asking a blessing of his Father upon it, that whilst his disciples were caring of it, their faith might be led to him, the bread of life, and to his broken body, and spiritually feed and live on him, and receive spiritual nourishment from him; or else of giving thanks to his Father for what was signified by it, for the true bread he gave unto his people, meaning himself; and for that great love he showed in the gift and mission of him; and for the great work of redemption, and all the benefits of it he had sent him to procure, and which were just on finishing; and for all the might, strength, and assistance, he gave to him as man and Mediator, in completing the business of salvation for his people; which was the joy set before him, and which filled his heart with pleasure and thankfulness; both these senses may be joined together, and may direct us as to the matter of blessing and giving thanks at the supper; for no form of words is pointed out to us; what were the express words our Lord used we know not: he brake it ; as a symbol of his body being wounded, bruised, and broken, through buffetings, scourgings, platting of a crown of thorns, which was put upon his head, and piercing his hands and feet with nails, and his side with a spear; for which reason the right of breaking the bread in this ordinance ought literally and strictly to be observed: Christ himself took the bread and brake it, denoting his willingness to lay down his life, to suffer and die in the room of his people; and this action of breaking the bread was used in order to be distributed, and that everyone might partake, as all the Israelites did at the passover, and not as these Corinthians at their ante-suppers, when one was full and another hungry; but Christ broke the bread, that everyone might have a part, as every believer may and ought, who may eat of this bread, and drink of the wine, and feed by faith on Christ, and take every blessing procured by him to themselves: and said, take, eat ; that is, to his disciples, to whom he gave the bread, when he had took and given thanks and brake it, bidding them take it; receive it into their hands, as an emblem of their receiving him, and the blessings of his grace in a spiritual sense, by the hand of faith; and eat the bread put into their hands, as a symbol of their eating and living by faith on Christ as crucified, as having loved them, and given himself for them; this is my body ; in opposition to, and distinction from, jsp l wpwg , the body of the passover, as the lamb was called f232 ; meaning not his mystical body the church, of which he is head, though this is one bread, and one body, ( 1 Corinthians 10:17) but his natural body, and that not properly, as if the bread was really changed into it; for the bread in the supper, after the blessing over it, and thanks given for it, retains its same nature, properties, form, and figure, only is set apart for the use of commemorating the broken body of Christ; and therefore this phrase is to be understood in a figurative sense, that it was a sign and seal of his body; it being broken into pieces represented his wounds, bruises, sufferings, and death; just in such sense as the rock is said to be Christ, in ( Corinthians 10:4) not that that was really Christ, but was a type and sign of him: which is broken for you ; for though a bone of him was not broken, but inasmuch as his skin and flesh were torn and broken by blows with rods and fists, by whippings and scourgings, by thorns, nails, and spear; and body and soul were torn asunder, or divided from each other by death; and death in Scripture is expressed by rb , breaking; (see Jeremiah 19:11) his body might be truly said to be broken, and that for his people; not merely to confirm his doctrine, or set an example of patience, or only for their good; but in their room and stead, as their surety and substitute: this do in remembrance of me ; signifying that it was not a passover commemoration, or a remembrance of the Israelites going out of Egypt; which because done in the night, as that was, and following upon the passover, the judaizing Christians among the Corinthians took it to be in remembrance of that; having imbibed that notion which the Jews then had, and still retain, that their deliverance from Egypt will be remembered in the days of the Messiah f233 ; yrykzm , they commemorate the going out of Egypt in the nights; says R. Eleazer ben Azariah, lo, I am about seventy years of age, and I never was worthy to say, that the going out of Egypt was recited in nights, till Ben Zoma expounded what is said, ( Deuteronomy 16:3) that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt; all the days of thy life; days of thy life, mean days; all the days of thy life, nights; but the wise men say, the days of thy life; mean this world, and all the days of thy life include the days of the Messiah: now the apostle mentions these words of our Lord, to show that the design of the institution of this ordinance of the supper was not in commemoration of the deliverance of the Jews out of Egypt; but it was in remembrance of himself, of what he did and suffered on the behalf of his people: particularly the eating of the bread was intended to bring to remembrance how the body of Christ was wounded, bruised, and broken for them; how he bore their sins in his own body on the tree, and suffered, and made satisfaction for them; and which was spiritual food for their faith when they reflected on it, and could not fail of bringing to their remembrance the love of Christ in all, when this was the case.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 23-34 - The
    apostle describes the sacred ordinance, of which he had the knowledge by revelation from Christ. As to the visible signs, these ar the bread and wine. What is eaten is called bread, though at the sam time it is said to be the body of the Lord, plainly showing that the apostle did not mean that the bread was changed into flesh. St. Matthe tells us, our Lord bid them all drink of the cup, ch. Mt 26:27, as is he would, by this expression, provide against any believer being deprived of the cup. The things signified by these outward signs, ar Christ's body and blood, his body broken, his blood shed, together with all the benefits which flow from his death and sacrifice. Our Saviour' actions were, taking the bread and cup, giving thanks, breaking the bread, and giving both the one and the other. The actions of the communicants were, to take the bread and eat, to take the cup an drink, and to do both in remembrance of Christ. But the outward act are not the whole, or the principal part, of what is to be done at thi holy ordinance. Those who partake of it, are to take him as their Lor and Life, yield themselves up to him, and live upon him. Here is a account of the ends of this ordinance. It is to be done in remembranc of Christ, to keep fresh in our minds his dying for us, as well as to remember Christ pleading for us, in virtue of his death, at God's righ hand. It is not merely in remembrance of Christ, of what he has don and suffered; but to celebrate his grace in our redemption. We declar his death to be our life, the spring of all our comforts and hopes. An we glory in such a declaration; we show forth his death, and plead it as our accepted sacrifice and ransom. The Lord's supper is not a ordinance to be observed merely for a time, but to be continued. The apostle lays before the Corinthians the danger of receiving it with a unsuitable temper of mind; or keeping up the covenant with sin an death, while professing to renew and confirm the covenant with God. N doubt such incur great guilt, and so render themselves liable to spiritual judgements. But fearful believers should not be discourage from attending at this holy ordinance. The Holy Spirit never cause this scripture to be written to deter serious Christians from their duty, though the devil has often made this use of it. The apostle wa addressing Christians, and warning them to beware of the tempora judgements with which God chastised his offending servants. And in the midst of judgement, God remembers mercy: he many times punishes thos whom he loves. It is better to bear trouble in this world, than to be miserable for ever. The apostle points our the duty of those who com to the Lord's table. Self-examination is necessary to right attendanc at this holy ordinance. If we would thoroughly search ourselves, to condemn and set right what we find wrong, we should stop Divin judgements. The apostle closes all with a caution against the irregularities of which the Corinthians were guilty at the Lord' table. Let all look to it, that they do not come together to God' worship, so as to provoke him, and bring down vengeance on themselves __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    24. Had given thanks (eucaristhv). Eucharistesas. Hence in post-apostolic and patristic writers, Eucharist was the technical term for the
    Lord's Supper as a sacrifice of thanksgiving for all the gifts of God, especially for the "unspeakable gift," Jesus Christ. By some of the fathers of the second century the term was sometimes applied to the consecrated elements. The formula of thanksgiving cited in "The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles" is, for the cup first, 'We give thanks to Thee, our Father, for the holy vine of David Thy servant, which Thou hast made known to us through Jesus, Thy servant: to Thee be the glory forever." And for the bread: "We give thanks to Thee, our Father, for the life and knowledge which Thou hast made known to us through Jesus Thy servant: to Thee be the glory forever. As this broken bread was scattered upon the mountains and, gathered together, became one, so let Thy Church be gathered together from the ends of the earth into Thy Kingdom, for Thine is the glory and the power through Jesus Christ forever."

    Brake. Bengel says: "The very mention of the breaking involves distribution and refutes the Corinthian plan - every man his own" (ver. 21).

    Do (poieie). Be doing or continue doing.

    In remembrance (eiv). Strictly, for or with a view to, denoting purpose. These words do not occur in Matthew and Mark. Paul's account agrees with Luke's. Remembrance implies Christ's bodily absence in the future.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    11:24 {When he had given thanks} (eucaristesas). First aorist active participle of eucaristew from which word our word Eucharist comes, common late verb (see on 1:14). {Which is for you} (to huper humwn). klwmenon (broken) of the Textus Receptus (King James Version) is clearly not genuine. Luke (#Lu 22:19) has didomenon (given) which is the real idea here. As a matter of fact the body of Jesus was not broken (#Joh 19:36). The bread was broken, but not the body of Jesus. {In remembrance of me} (eis ten emen anamnesin). The objective use of the possessive pronoun emen. Not my remembrance of you, but your remembrance of me. anamnesis, from anamimneskw, to remind or to recall, is an old word, but only here in N.T. save #Lu 22:19 which see.
