    Clarke's Commentary on Luke 22:19

    Took bread - See the nature and design of the Lord's Supper explained in the notes on Matthew 26:26-29 (note).

    This do in remembrance of me - That the Jews, in eating the passover, did it to represent the sufferings of the Messiah, as evident from the tract Pesachim, fol. 119, quoted by Schoettgen.

    Why do we call this the great hallel? (i.e. the hymn composed of several psalms, which they sung after the paschal supper). Ans. Because in it these five things are contained:

    1. The exodus from Egypt.

    2. The dividing of the Red Sea.

    3. The promulgation of the law.

    4. The resurrection of the dead. And,

    5. The sufferings of the Messiah.

    The first is referred to, Psalm 114:1, When Israel went out of Egypt, etc.

    The second in Psalm 114:3, The sea saw it and fled.

    The third in Psalm 114:4, The mountains skipped like rams, etc.

    The fourth in Psalm 116:9, I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living.

    The fifth in Psalm 115:1, Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory; for thy mercy and thy truth's sake. See the note on Matthew 26:30.

    Wesley's Notes on Luke 22:19

    22:19 And he took bread - Namely, some time after, when supper was ended, wherein they had eaten the paschal lamb. This is my body - As he had just now celebrated the paschal supper, which was called the passover, so in like figurative language, he calls this bread his body. And this circumstance of itself was sufficient to prevent any mistake, as if this bread was his real body, any more than the paschal lamb was really the passover.
