What does Mark 14:22 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Mark 14:22

And as they did eat
The paschal lamb, and the unleavened bread, just at the conclusion of that feast: Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it;
beginning and instituting a new feast, to be kept in aftertimes, in commemoration of his sufferings and death, now near at hand; and gave to them,
the disciples, and said, take, eat:
the word eat is not in the Vulgate Latin, Syriac, Arabic, Persic, and Ethiopic versions, and is wanting in some copies: this is body;
a figure and representation of it; (See Gill on Matthew 26:26).
