“I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? Then Yahushua said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. . . It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and they are life” John 6:51-3, 63.

When Yahushua gave the bread to His disciples to eat and said 'this is my flesh' and the grape juice to drink and said, 'this is my blood', He meant it in a figurative way. Yahushua often spoke figuratively regarding Himself. For example: Yahushua said, "I am the door" (John 10:7), and the "way" (John 14:6). But all agree He was not transforming Himself into a door or a highway. This is why the practice of the Eucharist is not Biblical. It is impossible for man to create anything (Yahuwah is the Creator) especially for man to create Yahuwah.

The Jews also thought that Yahushua was speaking in literal terms. To leave no room for confusion, Yahushua Himself clarified that He was referring to spiritual things (see John 6:63).

This is not to say that we should not break bread together in remembrance as Yahushua told us to do, but it is not to be believed that the bread is the actual body of Yahushua (suggestive of cannibalism) and the grape juice His actual blood. It is interesting to point out that those who practice the last supper must keep in mind that Yahushua was practicing the Passover, during which the Jews were to have no leaven for 7 days in their houses (Exodus 12:15). So, the idea of drinking fermented wine in remembrance of this is totally foreign to the Bible because Yahushua and His disciples did not drink fermented wine at the last supper.
