      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.
