Take and drink, this is my blood

With all the prohibitions about drinking blood, which is life, Jesus takes the chalice and passes it on to his disciples having proclaimed that this was the new covenant in his blood.... Someone was saying yesterday that it was still wine, and that the fact that the disciples slept it out in Gethsemane shows that it was wine. I do not want to go into all the details of the classical theory of transubstantiation. I only wonder, for the first time, about the impact of Jesus' action: Take and drink, this is my blood.
