Acts 27:35

Gave thanks to God (eucaristhsen twi qewi). First aorist active indicative of eucaristew from which our word "Eucharist" comes. It was saying grace like the head of a Hebrew family and the example of Paul would encourage the others to eat. Probably Paul, Luke, and Aristarchus had memories of the Lord's supper ( Acts 2:42 ) while to others it was only an ordinary meal ( Luke 24:30 ).
