    The Lesson of the Lord’s Supper

    This is the lesson that is taught in the Lord’s Supper. (Read the account again in 1 Corinthians 11:23-30, which we have already quoted.) The Lord Jesus took bread, gave thanks, and said, “This is My body.” This occurred “as they were eating.” 1Matthew 26:26. The bread was the ordinary unleavened bread that they had on the table, and such it was after Jesus had given thanks; just as the bread that Jesus distributed to the five thousand, after giving thanks, was exactly the same bread that it was when He took it into His hands. It was barley bread that the lad had with him that day, and it was barley bread that the multitude ate of; yet they ate the body of Christ. So the bread of the Lord’s Supper, although it was the ordinary bread that was being eaten in every Jewish family at that time, was nothing else than the body of Christ. The words of Jesus are absolute and unequivocal, and admit of no interpretation. They state a simple fact: “This is My body.”EVCO 253.2
