This is the 2nd episode in the series focused on the correlations between the creation of Eve through Adam and Jesus coming to redeem a bride.

Based on the correlation with Jesus for the first part of verse 23, even our traditional views and practices for taking communion (The Lord's Supper), are called into question.
