I find there are a number of Christians who are relatively unfamiliar with their religious heritage.

However, I feel that just as claiming that the Eucharist and the Seder are the same is too simplistic, so is claiming that they are different. (I know that sounds odd.)

At the very least, both are a sharing of food, which identifies the partakers as members of their religion, and ties them to their religious roots.

However, clearly there is more to it. Jesus did not tell his disciples, from now on, I want you to stop celebrating Passover, and, instead, have a little snack occasionally and think of me.

Luke 22.10-20

10Listen, he said to them, when you have entered the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you; follow him into the house he enters 11and say to the owner of the house, The teacher asks you, Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples? 12He will show you a large room upstairs, already furnished. Make preparations for us there. 13So they went and found everything as he had told them; and they prepared the Passover meal. 14When the hour came, he took his place at the table, and the apostles with him. 15He said to them, I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; 16for I tell you, I will not eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God. 17Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he said, Take this and divide it among yourselves; 18for I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes. 19Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me. 20And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.
