(SOLVED!) What Is Lords Supper In The Bible?

Protestant Evangelicals and Roman Catholics differ over the nature of communion 🙈 And I think, if you just come from a fairly, if you will, shallow, almost elementary sense of they just differ over whether the bread and wine actually change into the body and blood of Jesus, or don’t, you say, “Well, so which is it?” You have to admit, however, that this is not the core issue 😉 What’s achieved in communion is the core problem. It’s more than the changing of elements. I’m meaning that wine can still appear and taste like wine, and bread can still look and taste like wheat.
During the Last Supper—a Passover celebration—Jesus took a loaf of bread and gave thanks to God. As He had broken it had and given it to His disciples, He had said, “‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way, after the supper he had taken the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you’” (Luke 22:19-21). After the meal, he’s singing a hymn (Matthew26:30). Then they’re going out to night on the Mount of Olives. Judas betrayed Jesus there, just as it was predicted. Jesus was then executed the next day.

Bread and wine are the elements that represent Christ’s blood and body. We don’t know what type of bread is used to represent Christ’s body and blood. Unleavened bread was used by Christ simply because it was on his paschal table at the time. Matthew 26:26–29 states that wine is the only liquid to be consumed. Believers “feed,” on Christ’s blood and body (1) by not using their mouths, but (2) solely by their souls, and (3) only through faith. Faith is the mouth or hand that the soul uses to feed itself. They accomplish this by the Holy Ghost’s help. However, this “feeding on Christ” does not take place at the Lord’s Supper, but when faith is practiced. This information was brought to our attention by Ralph Ransom.

Jordan Connelly: patheos.com, when the Apostle Paul was instructing the Corinthian church on the meaning and the proper methods for taking Communion or the Lord’s Supper, he had written that this Sacrament has a specific purpose. Paul also reminds the church of the symbolism. Meaning of the bread when he writes that Jesus, “when he gaveiven thanks, he had broken it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me” (1st Cor 11:24), therefore we partake of the Lord’s Supper to remember what price He had paid in pouring out His blood and in the breaking (and death) of His body for our sakes so that every time we partake of this Sacrament, we should remember the cross and that we are to continue to take the bread and wine (or grape juice), until He returns (1st Cor 11:26b). Francheska Sheehan deserves a special thank-you for the revisions.
Jared Inman crossway.org, explains how the Communion meal involves us in and embraces us in God’s grace. We’re not just observers. You do something. We eat. Participation in the story is ours. Every time, we become part of the story. John Calvin The Supper is a meal in which Christ is served. “Our souls are fed by the flesh and blood of Christ,” he says, “in the same way that bread and wine keep and sustain physical life.”1 The French Confession of Faith of 1559 says, “The body and the blood of Jesus Christ give food and drink to the soul, no less than bread and wine nourish the body” (Åò37). We talk often about the need to be fed through the Word of God. Sometimes we even pray that the word might feed us. The same applies to Communion. Bread and wine are physical foods that provide our bodies with nutrients, carbohydrates and sugars; but as spiritual food they nourish our souls through Christ.
