or think about it this way: Jesus' baptism is said to set an EXAMPLE for us, so why not his abstaining from partaking of the emblems?
since the cup embodies the "blood of the new covenant" and the new covenant is for covering of sin, his drinking would have implied "sin", a contradiction of the rest of scripture teaching about him. but:
WT BtS and most churches agree that the bread wafer and wine are about heaven, an idea not shared by the original participants at the time.
This was not meant to be a monolog, but it is. everyone is still in the Wt thinking mode. counting the uncountable.
