“This is my blood of the
covenant, which is poured out for many”
Scripture: Mark 14:12-16,22-26 [Feast of the
Body and Blood of Christ] ( alternate reading: Mark
2:23 – 3:6 )
12 And on the first day of Unleavened Bread,
when they sacrificed the passover lamb, his
disciples said to him, “Where will you have us go
and prepare for you to eat the passover?” 13 And
he sent two of his disciples, and said to them,
“Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of
water will meet you; follow him, 14 and wherever
he enters, say to the householder, `The Teacher
says, Where is my guest room, where I am to eat
the passover with my disciples?’ 15 And he will
show you a large upper room furnished and
ready; there prepare for us.” 16 And the disciples
set out and went to the city, and found it as he
had told them; and they prepared the passover.
22 And as they were eating, he took bread, and
blessed, and broke it, and gave it to them, and
said, “Take; this is my body.” 23 And he took a
cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to
them, and they all drank of it. 24 And he said to
them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is
poured out for many. 25 Truly, I say to you, I
shall not drink again of the fruit of the vine until
that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of
God.” 26 And when they had sung a hymn, they
went out to the Mount of Olives.

Hebrews: 4. 1. Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. 2. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. 3. For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4. For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. 5. And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. 6. Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief: 7. Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. 8. For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. 9. There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. 10. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 11. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. 12. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. 14. Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
