Part of the equation for Communion is the basis of what was actually accomplished at the Passion, Cross and Resurrection of Jesus. So, very many things were really happening all at once, and we will look at just a few of them to further cement in our hearts why Jesus really is the Kings Feast.
When God first created adam, He knew all that was to happen. He understood, far better than we can, the power of understanding and choices.

Jesus is called the second adam because He was the physical Son of God with all that was Gods and He did not lose any of it. He laid it down for my benefit and took what was mine and paid for it.
