No... that's a heresy called impanation, that bread becomes God.

As Orthodox we are both literal as well as allegorical.
Is The Lamb both bread and Body of Christ?

^From an OO perspective, at least, this is not acceptable as St. Severus explicitly states that the bread and wine "transmutate."
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. -The Lord Jesus

The Saviour is made of elements which are distinct from one another yet He is not two Persons. God forbid! For both natures are one by the combination. -St. Gregory Nazianzen

Orthodonorm,

What do you believe about the Eucharist? Is it Jesus?

Let's be honest, the lack of candor around here is absurd. You don't care what I believe and I am not the topic of this thread nor are my beliefs.

You are not clear what even a belief is, so to discuss anything about a specific belief would be folly, even if your question were genuine.
I actually was interested about what you think about the Eucharist, but that being said, I am not surprised by your unwillingness to provide any positive content to this conversation. I suppose I was being unreasonably optimistic - hope beyond hope, and all that.

I've over 10k posts, if you or Mor "cared" it's there.

Sides, both of you beg questions as much as you beget them, while being unwilling to answer any yourselves.
