"This is my body which is broken for you"

It means how Jesus did suffer for us, “the just for the unjust”, “being put to death in the flesh”, 1 Peter 3:18

As it was The Fathers good pleasure, to have Him, “delivered for our offenses…” Romans 4:25!

So, we break the unleavened bread to commemorate His action on our behalf. The communion!
