Jesus implemented this ordinance on the night He was betrayed. Jesus gave bread and a drink from the fruit of the vine when he gave communion. (Luke 22:18-20) This is not the first occurrence of communion; it was done first by Melchizedek. Melchizedek, priest of the Most High God gave the first communion consisting of bread and wine to our father Abraham. (Gen. 14:18) Christ being our “High priest after the order of Melchizedek administered it the same. (Hebrews 6:20; Matt. 26:27-29) It should be practiced by all true followers in remembrance of Christ Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection as he commanded us to do.
