Lk 22:19,20 is equivalent to 1 Cor 11:24,25, and this presents a serious
problem. Which way does the dependence go? There was a long discussion of
this on Crosstalk couple of years ago. Evidence seems persuasive that
there are interpolations in Paul in this area. You can see my arguments on
my webpage, starting with my survey of Van Cangh's arguments that Markan
eurcharist is the earliest. From this follows that Lk/Paul version of the
eurcharist is late.
I don't think there's any need to launch into linguistic speculations like
Jack does in order to explain this matter.
Thanks to Louis for correcting my mistake about the proper name for
Tabernacles. If he wants to find a historical kernel in various accounts
of the Last Supper, he should read Van Cangh who does an excellent job in
analysing all the texts very closely.
