  To partake of the Lord’s supper with integrity consistent with our faith, we must learn to live out that unity that Christ has established. This article adapts one that Craig wrote in Craig Keener is author of 17 books, including Corinthians (Cambridge University Press, ). A close reading of 1 Cor 11 informs us that the observation of the Lord’s Supper was (at least at Corinth) accompanied by a feast (there was enough food and wine there for Paul to make the charges he does). Since the Lord’s Supper was a much simpler event / observation, I think that some effort needs to be made by those in charge as to.

1 Corinthians This is the only occasion in the Bible where the meal is referred to as ‘the Lord’s Supper’. The expression can suggest a number of meanings, for example, ‘the Supper belonging to the Lord,’ ‘the Supper hosted by the Lord,’ ‘the Supper which the Lord ordained,’ ‘the Supper . A very important passage that answers our question would be 1 Corinthians We’ll not read this entire section, but simply point out that the Lord’s supper is meant only for those saved people who regularly meet together for worship (vv. 17) and for those who are part of .

1 Corinthians is an often-misunderstood Scripture, in my assessment. I explain my understanding of what Paul intended to communicate with these words. Reexamining Paul's Teaching on the Lord's Supper (1 Corinthians ) - In 1 Corinthians (NKJV) 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. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.

(1 Peter –25 ESV) The Lord’s Supper — The Cup () In verse 25 Paul says, “In the same way he took the cup.” In the gospel accounts we read Jesus giving thanks again before drinking. This is why we give thanks before partaking of the fruit of the vine. Again, blessing the cup does not mean that we need God to bless it.

Now today we look at two final meanings—not that there are no others, but these are the two we will focus on in conclusion. One is that the Lord's Supper is a call to love the people of Christ, and beyond.

And the other is that the Lord's Supper is a call to self-examination. Both of these meanings are found in 1. How does the apostle Paul describe the Corinthians’ observance of the Lord’s Supper.

The Lord's Supper 1 Corinthians 17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse. 18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. 19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.

20 When ye. Nevertheless, it is only found once in 1 Corinthians in the KJV and NKJV. The Lord’s Supper was a supper. When our Lord broke the bread and gave the wine to His disciples just before His death, He did so in the course of the meal (see “after supper,” 1 Corinthians ).

Some call it a church ordinance, while to others it is a sacrament. For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

1 Corinthians Some call it the Eucharist, from the Greek word eucharisteo, meaning to give gave thanks for the bread, in verse The Catholic Church celebrates Mass, from the Latin missa meaning dismissed – which the priests would say at the end of the meeting to dismiss.Teddy did not really know what that verse of Scripture meant.
