The word communion is defined as: The sharing or exchanging of intimate thoughts and feelings, especially when the exchange is on amental or spiritual level.
Most of the world in general, and Christian in particular have no idea that Abraham took part in communion before Moses, David, or any of Jesus 12 disciples.
In fact the bread and wine that Jesus blessed and shared with his Apostles was a type of re-make of an event that took place approx. 1500 years prior (John 8:52-59).
Let's check it out:
"And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations; That these made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which Zoar. All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the salt sea. Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, andi in the thirteenth year they rebelled. And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaaomer, and the kings that were with him, andm smotede the Pephaims in Ashteorth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim...
And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went their way. And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed." Genesis 14:1-5, 11-12
Once upon a time their was a great war between 9 kings. Abraham's nephew lived in a city of one of the loser kings territory: Sodom. Lot (Abram's nephew) was taken captive.
"And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan. And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus. And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people. And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale." Genesis 14:14-17
After Abram and his household servants accomplished what 4 kings couldn't (food 4 thought) the king of Sodom came out to meet Abram. And another king also came out to met him:
"And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God." Genesis 14:18
Melchizedek king of Salem communed with Abram for he brought forth bread and wine. Why? Because Melchizedek was the priest of the Most High God!
Being that this was a communion and Melchizedek was the a priest this church service also ended (notice it actually happens at the end of the interaction) with Father Abraham paying tithes.
"And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him TITHES of all." Genesis 14:19-20

May the Lord add a blessing to tthe reading of His Word;
