      This "McDaniel: Miscellaneous Biblical Studies, Chapter Ten, Recovering Jesus' Words By Which He Iinitiated The
      Eucharist - Thomas F. McDaniel, Ph.D., 2009

      http://tmcdaniel.palmerseminary.edu/MBS_10_Eucharist.pdf appears to bear somewhat on this topic. However, I'm not in any
      way qualified to comment on it.

      Or, similarly, that this might be a translation issue from an underlying source text in a different language? For
      example, is there a difference between blessing and giving thanks in Aramaic?
