On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!”  After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”  John 20:19-23

After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, 
“Take this and divide it among you. 
For I tell you I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine 
until the kingdom of God comes.”

and gave it to them, saying,
“This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
