Objections to this sacrifice

[23] Some Object by saying, “How can Something Commemorate Itself”?

The Lord Jesus said “Do this in remembrance of Me”, How can the memory of the sacrifice, be the sacrifice itself?

There is nothing stopping from having something being its own memory. For example, the Manna was remembered by keeping some of it in a special utensil inside the Ark of Covenant.

(Exo 16:33-35) And Moses said to Aaron, "Take a pot and put an omer of manna in it, and lay it up before the LORD, to be kept for your generations." {34} As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.

{35} And the children of Israel ate manna forty years, until they came to an inhabited land; they ate manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan.

So the Manna in the pot was a remembrance of what they ate for forty years.
