Abstract

When Jesus administered the sacrament to his Old World disciples, he said it represented his body which was about to be given and broken in sacrifice. Among the Nephites, however, he said it represented the glorious, resurrected body he had shown them. Because of this, for Latter-day Saints today, the sacrament is an opportunity to remember both the Savior's sacrifice and his glorious resurrection.
