“As they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, ‘Take and eat it; this is My body.’” -Matthew 26:26 (HCSB)
A follow-up to Believer’s Baptism in the New American Commentary Studies in Bible & Theology series, The Lord’s Supper explores the current Baptist view of the communion sacrament. Contributors include Andreas Köstenberger (“The Lord’s Supper as a Passover Meal”), Jonathan Pennington (“The Last Supper in the Gospels”), Jim Hamilton (“The Lord’s Supper in Paul”), and Michael Haykin (“Communion in the Early Church”). Adding a helpful perspective, chapters are also provided on the Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Calvinist, and Zwinglian views of communion.
“This collection of essays helps to resurrect the Lord's Supper from the grave into which less than scriptural views on the ordinances had placed it. This book is biblical, it is Baptist, and it should put the remembrance of the body and blood of the Bread of Life back into our worship.”—D. Jeffrey Bingham, Chair and Professor of Theological Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
