Title: The Lords Supper an Overview


1
The Lords Supper(an Overview)
  • 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?
  • 1 Corinthians 1016

2
The Meaning of the Supper
  • It is a Memorial
  • 1 Corinthians 1123-25 Matthew
    2628

3
1 Corinthians 1123-25
  • For I received from the Lord that which
    I also delivered to you that the
    Lord Jesus on the same night in
    which He was betrayed took bread 24 and when He
    had given thanks, He broke it and said, "Take,
    eat this is My body which is broken for you do
    this in remembrance of Me." 25 In the same manner
    He also took the cup after supper, saying, "This
    cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as
    often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me."

4
Matthew 2628
  • For this is My blood of the
    new covenant, which is shed for
    many for the remission of sins.
  • The supper is a memorial of the Lords death,
    which makes our delivery from the bondage of sin
    possible!

5
The Meaning of the Supper
  • It is a Memorial
  • 1 Corinthians 1123-25 Matthew
    2628
  • It is a Proclamation
  • 1 Corinthians 1126

6
1 Corinthians 1126
  • For as often as you eat this bread and
    drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's
    death till He comes.
  • We proclaim our faith in the efficacy of the
    Lords death
  • We proclaim our faith in the eventual return of
    our Lord

8
1 Corinthians 1016-17
  • 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? 17 For we, though many, are one
    bread and one body for we all partake of that
    one bread.

9
The Observance of the Supper
  • To be Done with Reverence
  • 1 Corinthians 1127, 29

10
1 Corinthians 1127,29
  • (27), Therefore whoever eats
    this bread or drinks this cup of the
    Lord in an unworthy manner will be
    guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
  • (29), For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy
    manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not
    discerning the Lord's body
  • Refers to the action of observing, not the
    worthiness of the person.

11
The Observance of the Supper
  • To be Done with Reverence
  • 1 Corinthians 1127, 29
  • To be Done with Self-Examination
  • 1 Corinthians 1128

12
1 Corinthians 1128
  • But let a man examine himself, and
    so let him eat of the bread and drink
    of the cup.
  • The only way to know if your observance is
    acceptable is by self-examination. (Note It is
    accurate to say that the rebellious will not be
    accepted of God in their offering of worship).
    cf. Matthew 523-24

13
Matthew 523-24
  • Therefore if you bring your gift
    to the altar, and there remember
    that your brother has something
    against you, 24 leave your gift there before the
    altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to
    your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

  • Now on the first day of the week,
    when the disciples came together
    to break bread, Paul, ready to
    depart the next day, spoke to them and continued
    his message until midnight.

16
1 Corinthians 1133
  • Therefore, my brethren, when
    you come together to eat, wait for
    one another.
  • The supper is to be taken in the assembly if
    providentially hindered from the assembly, then
    the obligation is removed.

19
1 Corinthians 161-2
  • Now concerning the collection
    for the saints, as I have given
    orders to the churches of Galatia,
    so you must do also 2 On the first day of the
    week let each one of you lay something aside,
    storing up as he may prosper, that there be no
    collections when I come.

20
Lutheran Scholar
  • As we have already remarked, the celebration of
    the Lord's Supper was still held to constitute an
    essential part of divine worship every Sunday, as
    appears from Justin Martyr (A.D. 150)
  • Augustus Neander, History Of Christian
    Religion And Church, Vol. I, p. 332

21
Presbyterian Scholar
  • This ordinance (the Lord's Supper) seems to have
    been administered every Lord's day
    and probably no professed Christian absented
    themselves
  • (Thomas Scott, Commentary On Acts 207)

22
Episcopalian Scholar
  • This also is an important example of weekly
    communion as the practice of the first
    Christians.
  • A. C. Hervey, Commentary On Acts 207

23
Congregationalist Scholar
  • It is well known that the primitive Christians
    administered the Eucharist (the Lord's Supper)
    every Lord's day.
  • P. Doddridge, Notes On Acts 207

24
Conclusion
  • The Lords Supper is a very special memorial that
    Christians are privileged to
    participate in on
    each Lords day.
  • The first century
    Christians were steadfast
    in their observance of it
    as we should be as well!
