How could Jesus, the Son of God, become simple bread & wine? He doesn’t. He turns bread & wine into His Body & Blood, in the same way he turns sinners into Saints. In the same way the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us, because HE is God ever-present with us so we could be ever-present with Him.
“And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
“In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.”
