Jesus asked his diciples to eat bread and wine to celebrate his life, and Christians still do it today. But the wine is usually substituted with Grape Juice. Bread represents Jesus's skin, and wine (grape juice) represents his blood.

Christians celebrate Holy Communion to remember Jesus' death and resurrection. We have been urged by Jesus to continue doing this until he comes again.According to Mark, at the Last Supper Jesus said, "This is my body, which is being given for you; do this in remembrance of me." In like manner he took also the cup after the supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which shall be shed for you."These words are the basis for the Eucharist or Holy Communion
