“And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.”
The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
1 Corinthians 10:16
“For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.”
1 Corinthians 10:17
“O God, the Eternal Father, we ask thee in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ, to bless and sanctify this bread to the souls of all those who partake of it; that they may eat in remembrance of the body of thy Son, and witness unto thee, O God, the Eternal Father, that they are willing to take upon them the name of thy Son, and always remember him, and keep his commandments which he hath given them, that they may always have his Spirit to be with them. Amen.”
“And this shall ye do in remembrance of my body, which I have shown unto you. And it shall be a testimony unto the Father that ye do always remember me. And if ye do always remember me ye shall have my Spirit to be with you.”
3 Nephi 18:7
“As for the earth, out of it cometh bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire.”
“Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures.”
“And it came to pass that after I, the Lord God, had driven them out, that Adam began to till the earth, and to have dominion over all the beasts of the field, and to eat his bread by the sweat of his brow, as I the Lord had commanded him. And Eve, also, his wife, did labor with him.”
“And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.”
“When we cross a vertical with a horizontal…a tangible, measurable entity come into existence…The principle can be transferred symbolically to the crossing of any contraries such as the crossing of male and female which gives birth to an individual being…or the crossing of matter and spirit which gives birth to life itself. So the crossing is an action-principle which the square perfectly represents …So the square came to represent the earth…”
Robert Lawlor, “Sacred Geometry Philosophy and Practice, 24
“…3 and 4 and 6 and 8 and 12 are considered structural numbers, the numbers nature builds with.”
