The first Eucharist transformed Jesus death from an execution into an offering. It was then that Our Lord and Savior gave His body to be broken and his blood to be poured out. In Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist, Brant Pitre uses Paul's stunning vision of the Passion to teach not just how much Jesus suffered, but how much He loves.
Brant turns to Scripture and to his knowledge of ancient Judaism again and again to bring the Last Supper into the forefront of our thoughts, giving life and meaning to the event that is so far removed from us by time, yet the turning point that forever binds us to Christ and His plan for Salvation. Pitre points to three keys - the Passover, the Manna, and the Bread of the Presence - to unlock the original meaning of the Eucharist. Whether you want to deepen your devotion or better be able to offer understanding to others on the true presence of the Body and Blood of Christ, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist will provide a feast from which to draw strength.

“In the Mass – in the 'blood of the new and everlasting covenant' – Christ fulfills the rites of the old covenant. This beautiful book by Dr. Brant Pitre shows us that fulfillment in loving detail. We gain an appreciation of what was, so that we can see, ever more clearly, what 'is now and ever shall be.' Clear, profound and practical – you do not want to miss this book.” – Dr. Scott Hahn, author of The Lamb’s Supper and Signs of Life
