READING THROUGH 1 CORINTHIANS 11:20-22
* Paul describes church meals together
that are not the Lord's Supper.
* Some people bring a lot of food.
* Others don't have much food to bring.
* Some bring wine and drink enough to get drunk.
* Such divisive meals together are shameful..
1 COR 11:20-22 (NET) |
"20 Now when you come together at the same place,
you are not really eating the Lord’s Supper.
21 For when it is time to eat,
everyone proceeds with his own supper.
One is hungry and
another becomes drunk.
22 Do you not have houses
so that you can eat and drink?
Or are you trying to show contempt
for the church of God by shaming
those who have nothing?
What should I say to you?
Should I praise you?
I will not praise you for this!"

READING THROUGH 1 CORINTHIANS 11:23-27
* Paul was not among the apostles at
the Lord's final Passover meal,
so the Lord revealed to Paul how to serve
and to receive the Lord's Supper.
* This demonstration of the body (unleavened bread implied)
and blood (cup implies wine or grape juice)
of Jesus is the serious, solemn reminder
of Jesus Christ's death until He returns. (Unleavened bread and wine or grape juice are implied, but not commanded).
* The Lord's Supper (Communion) is to be taken in a manner worthy of the Lord's actual body and blood. There is no mention here of how often to offer - or to take - Communion.
|1 CORINTHIANS 11:23-27|
" 23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night in which he was betrayed took bread, 24 and after he had given thanks he broke it and said,
“This is my body, which is for you.
Do this in remembrance of me.”
25 In the same way, he also took the cup after supper, saying,
"This cup is the new covenant in my blood.
Do this, every time you drink it,
in remembrance of me.”
26 For every time you eat this bread and drink
the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
27 For this reason, whoever eats the bread
or drinks the cup of the Lord
in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body
and blood of the Lord."
