Scripture does not support transubstantiation. If we know that the Hebrews used figures of speech just as we do, (metaphors, idioms, hyperbole, etc.) we will not be deceived.
The following is from the Public Domain Book "A New Literal Translation from the Original Greek, of All the Apostolical Epistles: With a Commentary, and Notes, Philological, Critical, Explanatory, and Practical, to which is Added a History of the Life of the Apostle Paul" By James Macknight Published by Thomas Wardle, 1841 http://books.google.com/books?pg=PA99...
40. Eat, Drink. As the Hebrews represented knowledge and wisdom by meat and drink, they made use of the phrases eating and drinking, to denote the operation of the mind in receiving, understanding, and applying doctrine or instruction of any kind, so as to be strongly moved thereby. Jer. xv. 16. ' Thy words were found, and I did eat them.' Ezek. iii. 1. 'Son of man, &c. eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel:' Consider, understand, and get this roll by heart, and then go and speak it to the house of Israel; as is evident from ver. 4. 'Speak with my words to them.' Prov. ix. 5. ' Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled. 6. Forsake the foolish and live, and go in the way of understanding.' John vi. 51. ' I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever.' Hence, bread signifies doctrine, also moral qualities, which are nourished by sound doctrine. 1 Cor. v. 8. 'The unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.' Farther, to eat and drink any quality, signifies intimately to partake thereof. 1 Cor. xii. 13. 'Have been all made to drink of one Spirit.' 1 Cor. xi. 29.' Eateth and drinketh punishment to himself.'
Other uses in Scripture: "...man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD." Deut. 8:3, Mt. 4:4, Luke 4:4, John 6:49-51 "I have food to eat of which you do not know." Jn 4:32 "Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work." John 4:34 Compare also: "the FOOD which endures to eternal life" Jn 6:27 with "My WORDS will not pass away" Matthew 24:35 "For I want you to know, brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and all ate the same spiritual food, andall drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ." 1Cor10:1-4
