Per 1 Corinthians 11:25 (NIV) 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” (emphasis added, obviously) This seems to indicate that it was the third cup. Here is a much larger article about it. This is presuming that it was the ...

My new understanding of the Last Supper is mostly based on the information at http://www.therefinersfire.org/celebrating_passover.htm. The key verses which indicate that Christ was actually crucified on the day before the Passover feast are John 18:28 and John 19:14. John 18:28 NIV Then the Jewish leaders took Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the ...

Prior to the advent of pasteurization, fermentation was something which happened in all grape juice whether a fermenting agent was consciously introduced or not (and it happened with relative immediacy). The last supper, then, would have had wine and not plain grape juice. It is also noteworthy to point out that wine, unless something bizarre has occurred, ...

Two things are clear from scripture: The "last supper" was in fact a passover meal. Multiple references in Mark 14, Matthew 26 and Luke 22 make it clear that the disciples prepared a passover meal. In Matthew Jesus says "I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house." In Luke it reads "So they prepared the Passover. When the hour ...

Yeasts that come from grapes or its sugars are not prohibited. The prohibited yeasts are: wheat barley spelt rye oats *note these are the European grains for more ...

You say that you understand that Jesus refers entire Church and His participation in Holy Trinity. This is basically the Catholic view on this topic, so I'll try to clarify it. I'll try to explain perfect unity on a scriptural example little different from John 17. Genesis 1:27 ("God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him, male and ...

Well I read several versions of the bible (it usually helps to understand) KJV-RVR60-NVI-NIV, and with 'complete unity' mean to be perfect in unity. As you can read He said "I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity." this means to had a perfect relationship with God, so when we do what God wants for us and we know Him, we starts ...

At Passover all the yeast in the entire country was destroyed. This includes the sourdough that every household made bread from. If all the yeast is not destroyed on a regular basis the yeast becomes contaminated and the bread does not rise. The practise of destroying yeast was started by the Egyptians and they therefore get the credit for inventing ...

There is no reason to think that the wine of the Last Supper was unfermented. The prohibition is explicitly made against "leavened bread", and there no indication that it is against other products of yeast. It's not clear to me that wine was thought of in Biblical times as containing 'leaven'. Fermentation of wine largely happened without added yeast.
