What is the significance of the Lord's Supper for Christians today?
We will never find a satisfying answer to this important question without first asking another one: what was the meaning of the Lord's Supper for Jesus and his disciples and in the life of the first-century church?
In this scholarly yet practical work, Andrew Fleming examines
- the origins of the Lord's Supper
- the background of the Jewish Passover
- the practice of the Lord's Supper in the early church
As you read this Second Edition, your appreciation for the memorial celebration at the center of the Christian worship will be greatly enhanced. What is more, your experience of the Lord's Supper will be taken to new heights.
