“And It Came to Pass That He Brake Bread Again and Blessed It”

Brant Gardner

After the experience with the twelve that certainly underscored the importance of those twelve to the larger community of believers, the Savior now opens his ministration to the entire congregation. Those who had been there on the previous day had participated in the Sacrament. Now all of the new arrivals had the opportunity of partaking of the sacrament, and making the same covenants as did their relatives and friends the day before.

Cultural: As with the previous experience with the sacrament, the particular items consumed would have been adapted to the cultural foods available. See the commentary following 3 Nephi 18:1.
