Did transubstantiation took place in the Last Supper?
Jesus said, “This is my Body.” [Matt 26:26, Mk 14:22, Lk 22:19, 1Cor 11:24]
If it was really his body, then transubstantiation took place. If it was not his body, then he was lying.
I’m gonna go with Door #1.
Yes, by anticipation. It was a miracle over and above that of Transubstantion because He had not been Crucified yet. As a Divine Person He had the power to make His glorifed body present at any time any where, even before His death.
There is a beautiful article by Scott Hahn where he pours over these verses and explains why Jesus did this.
You can read an excerpt here
I would also reccomend reading or watching “the 4th cup” also by Scott Hahn.
Yes. Prior to becoming Pope Francis, Cardinal Bergoglio stated in a 2008 catechesis on the Eucharist:*By preemptively giving Himself at the Last Supper, the Lord transforms the moment and place in which covenants are broken (the moment of the treason by Judas) in the kairos – of holy time and space – where this new Covenant is sealed forever.
This is the best short explanation of the validity of transubstantion I´ve ever read. God bless:thumbsup:
