Meaning of the sacrament

Is Holy Communion symbolic?

If you are asking if the earthly elements, the bread and wine, symbolize or represent Jesus’ body and blood, the answer is “no.” The Bible teaches that Jesus’ body and blood are in, with and under the bread and wine when people receive the sacrament (Mark 14:22-24; Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 10:16; 1 Corinthians 11:27).
