The bread of communion

Hello staff, hello students,

I signed onto this group for the answer to this particular passage.

Please be as detailed (technically/grammatically/exegetically)
as you wish in your answers.

It is to my understanding that in all of the following passages,
the word "bread" is APTOS. By standard definition, one of the
meanings of this word is "raised bread."

Luke 22:19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto
them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance
of me.

Mark 14:22 And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it,
and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.

1 Cor 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of
the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the
body of Christ?

My question to the staff/group of students is this. Was the
bread given for communion raised bread?

Now, I personally don't think it is. But, as I am just in my first year, I
like to see the strongest arguments for or against this thought.

Thank you in advance for all of your help.

May God Bless you all.

John Pedraja
