The simplest explanation would seem to be.... no one would call that drinking. HOWEVER, if Jesus ate and drank with the disciples during the 40 days before his ascension, does that mean that the kingdom came in his death and resurrection? I think there is some merit in seeing a connection between "the kingdom" and "the new covenant."
