I am aware that the antidoron given to the faithful after the liturgy is from the bread which was blessed by the priest but not used in the Holy Communion. In terms of Scriptural parallels, is the antidoron considered to refer to the loaves and fishes, to manna in the desert, both of them or another case? I don't doubt its spiritual significance, I was just curious as to whether people like to relate it to certain verses more than others. Thank you.  Smiley

I do know that in the Coptic rite that 5 loaves are processed to the altar before the Divine Liturgy and the reference to the Feeding of the Five Thousand is very clear.

How so? It has to be an odd number of loafs brought forward in the form of the cross, but not necessarily 5. Only the chosen Lamb is taken in procession around the altar, not the rest.

I have not heard it relates to anything but the Eucharist itself

The Slavs underline it by using 5 loaves for the Proskomedia.  The practice of antiodon comes from discontinuing the practice of given the Faithful Eucharist to take home for during the week.  So the Eucharist connections-manna, multiplication of loaves, etc-is always present.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
