Discussing Our Differences on The Lord's Supper
On the night before his arrest and crucifixion, Jesus inaugurated the new covenant by giving bread and wine to his disciples saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood” (Lk 22:19–20). But how are we to interpret these words? When we partake of communion, are we literally feeding on Christ’s body and blood, or is this meal simply a way to celebrate and remember all that Jesus accomplished for us? On this program, we’re continuing to discuss our differences as we continue our series on The Ministry of Word & Sacrament.
