Eucharist - relation to the Passover

How does our Christian Eucharist relate (if at all) to the prechristian Passover? How can it be understood in relation to the Passover?

here is a book…

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist: Unlocking the Secrets of the Last Supper [Hardcover]

:thumbsup: A very good read - I would recommend the same!

Thank you both ever so much.

This is a “must read” - should be handed out by priests at baptism! The apaperback may be a wee bit cheaper, but do make sure you get it :slight_smile:

Passover is a type of the Eucharist in that it is something in the past that looks forward and anticipates the Eucharist.
