How did Christ institute the Holy Eucharist?

The Lord Jesus, knowing that the time had come for his departure from this world, instituted the Holy Eucharist at the Passover Supper. It was to serve as a constant reminder of his sacrifice and promises. Just as the Jewish Passover served as a reminder of God's promise to the Jews, so to was the Eucharist to serve as a New Passover with Christ's blood acting for us as did the lambs blood for the Israelites in Egypt -an atonement and a new and everlasting Covenant.

How is Christ himself a Sacrament?

The dictionary explains a Sacrament as "A formal religious ceremony conferring a specific grace on those who receive it; the two Protestant ceremonies are baptism and the Lord's Supper; in the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church there are seven traditional rites accepted as instituted by Jesus: baptism and confirmation and Holy Eucharist and penance and holy orders and matrimony and extreme unction.In biblical times there were many Saraments. The Jews has twisted the Old Law to suit themselves, and brought about many such ordinances that were not in the Old Law as given to Moses.Today there is only one Sacrament of worth and that is the Sacrament of the breaking of bread and the parting of wine or water in rememberance of our Lord, and that of renewing out covenants with Him. Other sacraments are those still adhered to but other Christian denominations.
