“Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.” —Hebrews 13:12
“The symbolism of the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper is beautiful to contemplate. The bread and water represent the flesh and blood of Him who is the Bread of Life and the Living Water, poignantly reminding us of the price He paid to redeem us. As the bread is broken, we remember the Savior’s torn flesh.” —D. Todd Christofferson
