Do This in Remembrance of Me


Yeshua told his disciples, "This [bread] is my body, which is given for you, do this in remembrance of me." What was the "this" that was to be done as a memorialization of Yeshua? Was the Last Supper an actual Passover meal, as Yeshua told his disciples, or was it simply another meal like the many meals he had eaten with his followers?
In this teaching, we will investigate the background of Passover, especially focusing on what exactly the sacrifice of the Passover lamb was and why the eating of the lamb made it a sacrifice. We will also look at development of the Passover and how a Passover seder was performed in the time of Yeshua. We will look at many points that indicate the Last Supper was indeed a Passover meal and also discuss the objections to this statement.

**NOTE FOR MEMBERS** I am making this teaching available to all with topical teaching access for two weeks. Once Passover is over, this teaching will be moved to the Early Access teaching section (Platinum members). In its place, I will be posting an abridged version of this teaching.

And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood

        Seriously , thank you Ryan. You have cleared up a lot of things! I used to hold to the book of John theory timeline. Now I see how much I missed because I did not understand the verbage of the day and the cultural norm of what was done on Passover. Now I don’t have to wonder anymore what are we doing with Kidush and Passover? Thank you so much for bringing meaning to the bread and wine that I never knew. You addressed most objections that I had had, and presented way more objections to the belief I held prior. I don’t very often change my long-held beliefs but you got me on this one! Thank you again for thorough research.

    Fascinating! The mixed water and wine which they drank in representation of His blood that was poured out for many, I see connected to Y’shua on the stake and when stabbed in the side water and blood poured out. Amazing! Thank you Ryan! Wow May Adonai continue blessing you with these awesome insights.

    Very good teaching. One of the best teachings on Passover I’ve gone through. As you often mention, our culture is so disconnected from the cultures of Yeshua’s time, it’s not easy to bring it all together. Worth the time.

    Ryan, thanks for not being dogmatic as though your interpretation is the “only” one that could be right. Second comment….if I follow a different calendar than you do, is it honorable for me to call you a liar? Strong language. Third comment…..the episode concerning the money changers is not evidence that Yeshua corrected every instance of temple practice that was at odds with righteousness….only that disagreements did exist. That particular one was most egregious. That there is so much fuzziness in the gospel recordings of “which day” they ate the Passover may well be purposeful. Could it not be that the Christians as well as Instone-Brewer may be accurate in the claim that the Gallileans observed a different date than the Judeans. And following, could it be a case of “calendar, schmalendar” ….. i.e., I am willing to accept that you have convictions differing from mine.

    Thank you Ryan! Praise Adonai for your studies, synthesis, and orderly communication. I watched this too late for Pesach 2019, but am grateful to have accessed it now. Thank you for the discussion around the manna, feeding of 5,000, and the table of showbread. The connection to Hebrews 6 and a taste of the world to come…WOW! It literally made me weep.

    I did get a bit confused on what day you said the two disciples may have been on the road to Emmaus. If the 16th day of Nisan was the weekly sabbath, then they traveled on the 17th?

    Your Gospel cycle on Luke caused me to notice that Luke is chronological (in consecutive order 1:3) and reading John as a commentary/targum on the Gospels is very helpful. May Adonai continue to richly bless your family. Thank you for taking the time to study and teach…cultivating a very high view of Adonai and His WORD. Glory to God!

      Glad you enjoyed it!! Yes, if the timeline is right, they would have been walking back on the 17th

    We, that study the Torah, are soooo blessed to have teachers like you, Ryan!! You answered so many questions that I had….. some of them I didn’t even know I had a question!! haha!! Wow….another great teaching!!! Anxious to listen to the other teachings in this set!!! Blessings to you, and your beautiful family!!

    Thanks for this, Ryan. The definition of a sacrifice is particularly critical to this teaching, and I learned a lot. I found myself thinking of Paul’s admonition to be “living sacrifices.” Can you help me connect these ideas, if they are intended to be? I don’t see us meeting the sacrificial requirements, so I don’t get it. Perhaps another member could comment as well. 🙂

      Hi Carey,
      I will try to address this in the series I’m recording this week called A Gift of Fire and Blood
