Passover (pesach)

Jesus of Nazareth celebrated Pesach and asked his disciples to remember him each time they gathered for this celebration. During Pesach services there is a time to remember prophets etc. Although by tradition Moshe is never mentioned, because only ADONAY receives all glory.
It is interesting that he celebrated it with his disciples, since this is a celebration that is done as a family or as a community.
Some times I wonder how much of the "liturgy" of Communion, as it is called by some, is actually a later addition by the leaders of the third or fourth century church instead of original words of Jesus of Nazareth.
