I think the eating and drinking of Christ is firmly embedded in the OT stories. Perhaps allegorical, maybe not.
And it was in Matthew that Jesus said that man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds forth from the mouth of God.
This business of an alter with little pieces of bread and little cups of grape juice is one of the funniest things established in Christianity.

My reaction : 'You've got to be kidding me.'

Transubstantiation? You've got to me kidding me.

Not to mention the cannibalism and vampire implications.

Eating the deity? Only man could invent such a thing....and did ... long before Jesus.

Even the Aztecs, that had nothing to do with the Jews, the Bible, or Jesus believed in eating their deities.

It's called "Theophagy" :
