1 Corinthians 11:23-34
We return today to our exegesis of 1 Corinthians 11, Paul’s very significant teaching on the Lord’s supper- what it is theologically, what it stands for, and how it ought to be carried out. In our last Bible study together on this text, we considered some of the meaning of the elements of the Lord’s supper- the unleavened bread and the wine. We considered the abuses of the Lord’s supper, the theology of the Lord’s supper, and some aspects of the new covenant. All of these issues require closer inspection, so we will consider them carefully today, along with Paul’s concluding thoughts on the requirement of repentance when participating in the Lord’s Supper.
