1 Corinthians 11

#1Co 11:23| CXX. THE LORD'S SUPPER INSTITUTED. (Jerusalem. Evening before the crucifixion.) #Mt 26:26-29 Mr 14:22-25 Lu 22:19,20 1Co 11:23-26| the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was betrayed took bread. See TFG "#Mr 14:22|". #1Co 11:24| This is my body, which is for you: this do in remembrance of me. See TFG "#Mr 14:22|". #1Co 11:25| In like manner also the cup, after supper. See TFG "#Mr 14:23|". Saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood. See TFG "#Mr 14:24|". This do, as often as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. The word "remembrance" comes as a refrain after both the loaf and the cup. The central purpose of the supper is to bring the sacrifice of Christ and all its blessed results vividly to mind. (TFG 659) #1Co 11:26| Ye proclaim the Lord's death till he come. This verse is a comment of Paul's upon the nature of the supper. In keeping the Lord's Supper we proclaim to our own souls and to the world our trust in the death of Christ, and our hope that he will return and fulfill the expectations begotten in us by it. (TFG 659)
