    This means my “blood of the covenant,” which is to be poured out
    n behalf of many for forgiveness of sins.Matt. 26:28.

    God could apply the value of Jesus’ shed blood to Adam’s descendants. He could also adopt certain devoted humans “as sons” by anointing them with holy spirit. (Rom. 8:14-17) Being considered to be without sin in God’s eyes, they would in a sense be like Jesus, the sinless Son of God. These anointed ones would become “joint heirs with Christ” and have the opportunity of becoming “a kingdom of priests.” (Ex. 19:6)


    This was a privilege that the nation of Israel under the Law could have had. Concerning the “joint heirs with Christ,” the apostle Peter stated: “You are ‘a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for special possession, that you should declare abroad the excellencies’ of the One who called you.” (1 Pet. 2:9) How vital the new covenant is! It enables Jesus’ disciples to become the secondary part of Abraham’s offspring.

    It's too bad that the JW's never listened so as to celebrate the Passover correctly. Real Pitty.

    The way the Lord's evening meal is done corresponds to what the apostle Paul said was important to do in order to remember Jesus, that is to eat of the loaf and to drink of the cup. The rest may certainly contain important symbolic features but the apostle doesn't seem to attach much importance to them, and he says that he received this understanding from the Lord.....

    The Lord's evening meal is more destined to remind his Bride of the promise he made her to come (back) (see Jewish betrothal) than to reenact the Passover, which symbolized and foretold what he was about to do, to fulfill and to undergo that night.

    "For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night on which he was going to be betrayed took a loaf, and after giving thanks, he broke it and said: “This means my body, which is in your behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me.He did the same with the cup also, after they had the evening meal, saying: “This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood. Keep doing this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For whenever you eat this loaf and drink this cup, you keep proclaiming the death of the Lord, until he comes."

    Thanks for the reply. I have gained some understanding on this, and agree the Watchtower is not celebrating correctly. Instead of us proclaiming the death of the Lord, the ceremony appears to have turned into a celebration of the anointed. I don't want to partake at the Kingdom Hall because I think it would draw too much attention to myself.
