The aim of this article is to determine whether one or more cups were used at the first Holy Communion when Christ instituted this meal. The relevant texts (Matt. 26:27. Mark. 14:23. Luke. 22:17 and 1 Cor 11:25) are in­vestigated within their socio-historical contexts. The conclusion arrived at is that there is more than one legitimate interpretation of the words of institution. It is valid to accept both the possibilities of one cup or more than one having been used by the disciples.
