Is Jesus a sacrament?
Yes, Jesus Himself is the Holy Eucharist, one of the Sacraments of Initiation. Jesus, during the Last Supper on Maundy (or Holy) Thursday, offered His Body and Blood under the signs of bread and wine. This process is calledtransubstantiation and the only time transubstantiation happens is in the Consecration. So, yes, Jesus is the Blessed Sacrament, The Holy Eucharist.

Answer A sacrament is an outward sign of inward grace in that it bears its image and is its cause. It is a sacred and mysterious sign or ceremony, ordained by Christ, by which grace is conveyed to our souls. In every sacrament three things are necessary: the outward sign, the inward grace, Divine i…nstitution. Sacraments do not naturally signify grace; they do so because they have been chosen by God to signify mysterious effects. Against all innovators, the Council of Trent declared: "If anyone say that the sacraments of the New Law do not contain the grace which they signify, or that they do not confer grace on those who place no obstacle to the same, let him be anathema" (Sess. viii, can.vi). "If anyone say that grace is not conferred by the sacraments ex opere operato but that faith in God's promises is alone sufficient for obtaining grace, let him be anathema" A sacrament is a spiritual covenant between God and man. We take upon ourselves the name of the Lord, to remember his blood which was shed for us and his body which was broken for us. We remember the atonement that he made for us. A sacrament is an outward sign of inward grace in that it bears its image and is its cause. In every sacrament three things are necessary: the outward sign, the inward grace, Divine institution. In biblical times, there were may sacraments held for all kinds of reasons, none pertained to that of the sacrament to our Lord but to other gods of the time. The Sacraments are seven in number: Baptism, Confirmation, Penance, Holy Eucharist, Holy Orders, Matrimony, Anointing of the Sick. a formal religious act conferring a specific grace upon those who receive it.

What do the sacraments mean?" It's a simple question that can't be answered simply. That's partly because of the number of sacraments. There are seven religious rituals or church ceremonies that Catholics call sacraments. Then there are other lesser rituals and practices (like blessing ourselves wit…h holy water or praying the rosary) called sacramentals. Is there a single meaning that can embrace all the sacraments?. Sacraments are rituals that are highly symbolic. That's another reason why it's not easy to specify exactly what each or all of the sacraments mean. Unlike traffic signs or signs in a store, symbols can mean more than one thing at the same time: They can mean different things to different people (think of a cross, a six-pointed star or a crescent), and they can have different levels of meaning. For example, think of the many levels of meaning-personal, family, civil, religious-connected with a wedding. Ceremonies that are rich in symbolism can mean many things at once. ( Full Answer )
Sacraments does not refer to the Church and Jesus; it refers to things like baptism and the Lord's Supper.. Answer 10/April/09 . If one understands a sacrament as being something which manifests the presence of God in a real way, then we can see how some theologians do, indeed, refer to both Chris…t and the Church as sacrament.. The theologian, Edward Schillebeck, wrote a book entitled "Christ, the Sacrament of Encounter with God" in which the premise is that Christ, being God enfleshed, is the ultimate presence of the Divine among us. In this sense, Christ is truly THE Sacrament.. In that the Church is the Mystical Body of Christ, it too manifests Him to the world, and may be referred to as a sacrament.. Referring to Christ and the Church as sacraments does not, of course, diminish the importance, and place, of the seven sacraments formally accepted by the Church in the 16th century. It is simply a broader - and, in to my thinking - a more powerful and dynamic concept of sacrament. ( Full Answer )
The Seven Catholic Sacraments are: . Baptism (You are cleansed from original sin and become a Child of God) . Holy Communion (It is the reenactment of the Last Supper and you receive Jesus) . Reconciliation (A sacrament which 100% surely cleanses all the sins you confess) . Confirmati…on (You become a full Catholic member) . Marriage (A man and a woman become one and helps each other to grow especially in faith) . Holy Orders (You become a religious and dedicate yourself to God) . Anointing of the Sick (Hopefully the last rites before you die, you receive your final Communion and confession) ( Full Answer )
Jesus did not institute marriage , Jehovah God did with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Read the scriptures listed here in your Bible. Jesus celebrated with persons at marriage feasts, though. In fact, he performed his first miracle, by turning water to wine at John 2:1-11 --"Now on the thi…rd day a marriage feast took place in Caâ²na of Galâ²iÂ·lee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the marriage feast. When the wine ran short the mother of Jesus said to him: "They have no wine." But Jesus said to her: "What have I to do with you, woman? My hour has not yet come." His mother said to those ministering: "Whatever he tells YOU, do." As it was, there were six stone water jars sitting there as required by the purification rules of the Jews, each able to hold two or three liquid measures. Jesus said to them: "Fill the water jars with water." And they filled them to the brim. And he said to them: "Draw some out now and take it to the director of the feast." So they took it. When, now, the director of the feast tasted the water that had been turned into wine but did not know what its source was, although those ministering who had drawn out the water knew, the director of the feast called the bridegroom and said to him: "Every other man puts out the fine wine first, and when people are intoxicated, the inferior. You have reserved the fine wine until now." Jesus performed this in Caâ²na of Galâ²iÂ·lee as [the] beginning of his signs , and he made his glory manifest; and his disciples put their faith in him.

Yes. Jesus told the Apostles "Whoever's sins you forgive, they are forgiven them. Whoever's sins you retain, they have been retained." John 20:23. Bishops are the successors of the Apostles.
If you mean the sacrament of the Lord's Supper, then it was on the night Jesus was betrayed as He and the disciples celebrated the Passover feast.
"Sacramentals are "sacred signs instituted by the Church that dispose people to receive the chief effects of the sacraments and they make holy various occasions in human life." ~ Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy
Jesus is the author of the Sacraments, their dispenser and the cause of their efficacy. He, however, is not properly a sacrament Himself, for a sacrament is a visible sign meant to confer grace when validly administered. The phrase, "Jesus is the first sacrament" may refer to Jesus in the Holy Eu…charist, for He is there truly present, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. The Holy Eucharist is not the first sacrament received, however, it is first among the others in its sublime excellence, for in it we really receive God and are in His Divine Presence. The Holy Eucharist also carries with it incredible graces. ( Full Answer )
According to the Catholic Church... . Christ instituted some of the Seven Sacraments during His ministry while instructing the apostles in the others that would only become active when the saving grace of His redemptive death had come to pass. Evidence of the seven sacraments exists both in writt…en and oral Tradition, which Catholics reference as the deposit of Faith. As well, the presence and use of all seven sacraments in the first centuries of the early Church are documented as well in writings of the Church fathers and Christian historians. Sacraments are external signs meant to confer grace. The external sign is called the matter and the formula or words that accompany the matter are called the form. Since man is a physical and spiritual beings, Christ instituted the sacraments in order that human beings could see the sign of the spiritual effect they wish to receive - it is Christ's way of assuring us that the spiritual reality has transpired. Many of these signs are arbitrary: there is nothing in these things which themselves or powerful, nor in the words. The only reason they have power is because Christ has granted them such power when used in a proper way, with the proper words and the proper minister. The following will address each sacrament and supply one quote to help indicate how it was done and the time period of it's institution. Baptism "Going therefore teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." - St. Matthew 28:19 The proper sacrament of Baptism was instituted after Our Lord's resurrection and is here given to them as a mandate as well as His personal authority to go and preach in His Name. When Christ was baptized by John the Baptist - whose baptism was a sign of penance not a sacrament - it was an act of humility since Christ was without sin. By so doing, however, He sanctified water which already had a natural symbolism for cleansing and thus is easily understood by us in its sacramental use. Confirmation "When the apostles, who were in Jerusalem, had heard that Samaria had received the word of God; they sent unto them Peter and John. Who when they were come, prayed for them that might receive the Holy Ghost. For he was not yet come upon any of them: but they were only baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid hands upon them and they received the Holy Ghost." - Acts 8:14-17 The apostles had been confirmed in their Faith at Pentecost with the descent of the Holy Ghost upon them in the Cenacle in John 20 (this is also when they were given the power as ordained ministers to administer Confession); this is the first Confirmation, for Christ promised to send the Paraclete and does so in this manner. In the Acts of the Apostles, some of the early ministry of the Church is recorded and the above quote is an example of a Confirmation. Despite already receiving the Holy Ghost in baptism the rite is conferred as well as the imposition of the hands. The Holy Eucharist Christ first introduces the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist in John 6, causing many of His followers to become scandalized in Him by his literal emphasis. However, the sacrament is not properly instituted until the Last Supper, the evening before His death, which is celebrated as Maundy Thursday. "While they were at supper, Jesus took bread and blessed, and broke: and gave to his disciples, and said: Take ye, and eat: this is my body. And taking the chalice he gave thanks: and gave to them, saying: Drink ye all of this. For this is my blood of the new testament which shall be shed for many unto remission of sins." - St. Matthew 26:26-28 Confession or the Sacrament of Penance Upon being confirmed, the apostles were also authorized by Christ to be able to administer the sacrament of confession. "As the Father hath sent me, I also send you. When he had said this, he breathed on them, and he said to them: Receive ye the Holy Ghost: Whose sins you shall forgive they are forgiven them, and whose sins you shall retain they are retained." St. John 20: 21-23. Christ Himself, being God, knew the sins of those around Him and often forgave people, which much incensed the Pharisees who doubted His divine claim. The apostles and Church ministry were not guaranteed the ability to read minds, hence confession involves the humility of the sinner to freely confess to someone that has the authority to lose sins. In the quote above Christ grants that authority to His disciples at Pentecost, that they go and do so in His Name. Marriage Marriage had already been instituted since Adam and Eve as a natural bond and vow. Christ, however, elevated it to the level of a sacrament. He declares how matrimony, which had suffered from permissions of polygamy and divorce, will now forever be: "From the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female. For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother; and shall cleave to his wife. And they shall be in one flesh. Therefore now they are not two, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder." St. Mark 10: 6-9. The sacrament of matrimony is actually administered by the couple, not the priest, hence the institution is here given by Christ sometime during His active ministry. The sacramental quality of the sacrament of matrimony is described in 1 Peter 3:7-9, as he refers to marriage as both a calling (a vocation) and a blessing which the Church views as a means of personal sanctification to attain heaven. Extreme Unction or the Sacrament of the Sick The sacrament is one that is used to prepare the soul for the final pains of death as well as offering the chance of healing should it be God's Will. Christ already had his disciples administering this sacrament during His ministry, thus it was instituted early on: "Going forth they preached that men should do penance: and they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them." - St. Mark 6:12 James 5 records a snippet of the apostolic ministry's application of this sacrament. Holy Orders Along with the Holy Eucharist, Holy Orders was instituted during the Last Supper on Maundy Thursday. Many theologians believe Judas to have been ordained before he left the supper, as well as also making a sacrilegious communion. Holy Orders were instituted by Christ when He said, "Do this for a commemoration of me." - St. Luke 22.19. Here Christ gives them a mandate to preform the sacrament of the Mass, i.e. the Holy Eucharist. The priest is ordained primarily for this purpose: to celebrate the Eucharist, hence this is the mandate that enacts ordination. Although specific details of the ordination rite are not contained in the Last Supper narrative, further evidence later in the New Testament describes how the rite is administered: "Neglect not the grace that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the imposition of the hands of the priesthood." - 1 Tim. 4:14. Further passages follow throughout Acts and Timothy referring to the priesthood as manifested in deacons, priests and bishops. . Answer according to other Christian theologies... . He did not.. He instituted only 2 sacraments -. 1. Holy Communion ('The Eucharist', 'The Lord's Supper', 'The Mass') when he broke bread on Maundy Thursday night at the Last Supper. 2. Baptism - "Go and baptise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit" was his great commission at the end of Matthew's Gospel.. The other 5 'sacraments' (Confirmation, Ordination, Matrimony, Penance and Unction) are not true sacraments as they were not instigated by Our Lord, but introduced as doctrine by the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church, and are not recognised by Protestant churches as sacraments because of this.

Sacramentals are miscellaneous objects consecrated for approved devotion. They include such things as rosary beads, scapulars, statues of saints, holy water, etc.
Jesus is the Primordial Sacrament of the Father. By being the "Primordial Sacrament", Jesus Chriast is much more than simply the originator of the Sacraments. He is at once the SOURCE, the PRIMARY AGENT and the GOAL of all sacramental sctivity. As SOURCE, Christ is the one in whom all the sacraments… are rooted and from whom they derive their efficacy. As PRIMARY AGENT, he is the one who, through the actions and words of the minister celebrating the various sacraments, baptizes, confirms, forgives, and reconciles, heals, offers himself in sacrifice, binds in faithful love and consecrates for service. As Goal of all sacraments, Christ is the perfection toward which our life on earth tends. ( Full Answer )

Simply put Sacramentals are things or actions that are used to show respect or love of God while Sacraments are rites where God acts directly on the person. However, if you need more specifics then: Sacramentals are material objects, things or actions ( sacramentalia ) set apart or blessed by th…e Roman Catholic Church, the Orthodox Churches, the Anglican Churches, and Old Catholic Churches to manifest the respect due to the Sacraments, and so to excite good thoughts and to increase devotion, and through these movements of the heart to remit venial sin, according to the Council of Trent (Session XXII, 15). Examples of rituals that are sacramentals are making the sign of the cross, bowing the head, genuflection, prostration, the imposition of blessed ashes (the ashes themselves are also a sacramental). Other examples of objects that may be considered sacramentals are holy water, ashes, bells (especially church bells), blessed fire, blessed salt, candles, the nativity scene, the Advent wreath, crucifixes, holy oil, holy water, incense, liturgical vessels (e.g. chalices), a Mary garden, medals (e.g. the Miraculous Medal or the Saint Benedict Medal), palm branches, graves, funeral palls, religious habits and scapulars, rosaries, vestments, or wedding rings. A sacrament , as defined in Hexam's Concise Dictionary of Religion is what Roman Catholics believe to be "a rite in which God is uniquely active. The following are the Seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church : . Baptism (Christening) . Confirmation (Chrismation) . Holy Eucharist (or Holy Communion) . Penance (Confession) . Anointing of the Sick (known prior to Vatican II as Extreme Unction (or more literally from Latin: Last Anointing); informally, the "Last Rites") . Holy Orders . Matrimony ( Full Answer )
His institution of this sacrament repeats in each holy mass, when is called forth the moment of the last supper, when he took the bread, the wine and changed in his flesh and blood (in unable to see manner). He said "Do this for my commemoration".
i think it should be the sacrament of priesthood because that's when you become a preist and you become a member of gods family
In this answer, I assume you are referring to sacraments within the Roman Catholic tradition. The term "paschal mystery" refers to the suffering, death, resurrection, and glorification of Jesus Christ. The main sacrament involved is the Eucharist. The last supper is where Jesus instituted the Eucha…rist, giving his body and blood to his disciples in the form of bread and wine. Baptism is another main one. In baptism, we die to sin (by going under the water or having it symbolically poured on you) and come alive to new life in Christ, just as Christ died on the cross and was resurrected to new life. The other sacraments, marriage, confirmation, penance, holy orders, and anointing of the sick, do not derive directly from the paschal mystery, but one has to remember that none of them would exist without Jesus' death and resurrection. Without that, Christianity itself would not exist. ( Full Answer )
On the first Easter Sunday, Jesus appeared to His Apostles, "breathed on them," and said, "'Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive men's sins, they are forgiven them; if you hold them bound, they are held bound.'" (John 20:21-23) Beyond this account of the Lord Jesus' institution of the Sacrament o…f Penance, Scripture does not give us His reasons for doing as He did.. We do know that the Jesus is infinite love and mercy, and that anything He chose to do during His time on Earth, He must have done because of His great love for us and because of the infinite mercy He has in His heart towards us.. Knowing you have done something wrong is a miserable feeling. Police detectives know that, if they wait long enough, a criminal who is not entirely a lost soul - who still has a conscience - will sooner or later confess to his crime. It's not necessary for the police to "rough up" or "give the business to" any but hardened criminals; most people with a conscience are bothered when they have done something wrong, and feel the need to tell somebody. Shakespeare wrote, "Conscience doth make cowards of us all." (Hamlet, Act III, sc 1) It is true that we confess our sins to God, but the Catholic Church teaches that when we sin, we sin against the entire body of Christ, which is the Church, and we must be reconciled with God and with our neighbor through the Church. This is one of the things the Sacrament of Penance does: it allows the penitent to "get it off his chest", and at the same time, through the ministry of the priest, allows him to become reconciled not only with God, but with the entire Church.. The priests are specially trained to help sinners with their burdens. Sometimes, a young man or a young woman may believe that they are truly repentant, but there may be in the back of their minds a certain cavalier attitude of "so what? Everyone's doing it." If this be the case, then the sinner's heart is not sincerely repentant. We know that God will not be mocked. On hearing this person's confession, the priest may ask some gentle questions and pose some hard truths intended to cause the penitent to wake up and really see the sin in what he or she had been doing for what it is. This is an inestimable grace of the Sacrament.. Similarly, there may be penitents who are troubled with all manner of faults and failings and weigh themselves down with imagined sins that really aren't there at all. Priests are trained also to deal gently and considerately with souls in need of comfort and compassion, and will put their minds at ease about the state of their soul.. The more I think of all the wonderful benefits of the Sacrament of Penance, the more I think to myself how very wise Our Lord Jesus is! ( Full Answer )
A sacrament is a visible sign instituted by Jesus Christ in order to give use grace and to make us holy.

In God's eyes, marriage is much more than a mere socialarrangement. It is a sacred union between a man and a woman. TheBible says: "From the beginning of creation '[God] made them maleand female. On this account a man will leave his father and mother,and the two will be one flesh' . . . Therefore w…hat God yokedtogether let no man put apart." * - Mark 10:6-9; Genesis 2:24 . The words, "what God yoked [or, joined] together," do not mean thatmarriages are made in heaven. Rather, by pointing to our Creator asthe Originator of the marriage arrangement, the Bible emphasizesthe seriousness of this union. Couples who see their marriage inthat light treat it as a sacred, permanent bond, thus strengtheningtheir determination to make their marriage a success. They furtherincrease their prospects for success when they turn to the Biblefor guidance in fulfilling their respective roles as husband andwife. ( Full Answer )
Jesus said to his disciple to do only two things: 1. to break bread in honour of Him: 1Co 11:24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me." 1Co 11:25 In the same manner He also took the cup after su…pper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood.

Catholic Answer Our Blessed Lord instituted the Most Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper on Holy Thursday, the night before He gave His life for us on Calvary. from Pocket Catholic Dictionary by John A. Hardon, S.J., Doubleday c 1980, 1985 . Eucharist . The true Body and Blood of Jesus Chri…st, who is really and substantially present under the appearances of bread and wine, in order to offer himself in the sacrifice of the Mass and to be received as spiritual food in Holy Communion. It is called Eucharist, or "thanksgiving", because at its institution at the Last Supper Christ "gave thanks," and by this fact it is the supreme object and act of Christian gratitude to God. Although the same name is used, the Eucharist is any one or all three aspects of one mystery, namely the Real Presence, the Sacrifice, and Communion. As Real Presence, the Eucharist is Christ in His abiding action of High Priest, continuing now to communicate the graces He merited on Calvary; and as Communion, it is Christ coming to enlighten and strengthen the believer by nourishing his soul for eternal life..

Jesus didn't create sacraments, it is strictly unbiblical, and was adopted in the year 1439 by the Roman Catholic Church. Jesus Christ instituted only two ordinances, baptism and the Lord's Supper. You can read about this in the book of Matthew 28:19-20 and 26:36-28.

Because it symbolizes the blood and body of Jesus Christ--the atonement for the sins of mankind.
He simply did not. He only asked our remembrance of Him annually at the Passover supper and instituted new symbols of bread (His marred body) and wine (His shed blood).
