Journey through the Bible

Mark 14:22-26 (Focus: Eucharist)

This week we studied the institution of the Lord’s Supper (Eucharist). We compared the four accounts preserved in the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, Paul. We noted the similarities and the differences between the accounts. We focused on the three-fold purpose of the ordinance: Memorial (remembrance), Eschatological (anticipation), and Christological (present experience). We discussed the importance of the Lord’s Supper in the life of every believer.

“While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take it; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it. “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many,” he said to them. “Truly I tell you, I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.” When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. Mark 14:22-26 (NIV)
