Did the Apostles receive the body and blood of the Lord on Holy Thursday?


#1

Since Christ had not yet died on Holy Thursday, did the Apostles recieve his body/blood/soul divinity that day while he was in the upper room with them?

Hi,

Yes, of course they received His body and blood. It was in anticipation of what would happen the next day. The events of Good Friday transcend time, covering the entire history of the human race.
