"And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me." And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood."  Luke 22:19-20 (NAS)

"For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, "This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me." In the same way He took the cup also, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me." For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes.
1 Corinthians 11:23-29 (NAS) 

When the Christians met together as a church, it was to remember the death of Jesus by taking the unleavened bread(1) and fruit of the vine(2).

(1) Unleaved Bread.  At the Lord's last supper before He was crucified he took of bread.  This was during the feast of the unleavened bread during the Passover (see Luke 22:1, Matthew 26:17 and Mark 14:1).  Unleavened bread does not have any yeast or leaven.  Yeast or leaven is the ingredient which causes bread dough to rise. 

(2) Fruit of the Vine.  As noted in Luke 22:17-18 above, the cup contained "fruit of the vine."  See also Matthew 26:29 and Mark 14:25.  Grape vineyards are very common and plentiful. 

How do you feel about eating unleavened bread and drinking fruit of the vine each Sunday for the purpose of proclaiming the Lord's death?
