The Lord's Supper
[ Back ] [ Up ] [ Next ]
What was the
character of Zacharias, and Elizabeth?
"And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the
commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless." Luke 1:6.
obligatory under the old covenant besides the ten commandments?
"Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine
service, and a worldly sanctuary." Heb. 9:1.
In what did
these ordinances consist?
"Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and
carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation." Heb.
What did these
"For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the
very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered
year by year continually, make the comers thereunto perfect." Heb. 10:1.
Why was it
necessary for them to offer these sacrifices?
"And if anyone of the common people sin through ignorance, while he
doeth somewhat against any of the commandments of the Lord concerning things
which ought not to be done, and be guilty; or if his sin, which he hath sinned,
come to his knowledge; then he shall bring his offering, a kid of the goats, a
female without blemish, for his sin which he hath sinned." Lev. 4:27, 28.
offerings take away their sins?
"For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should
take away sins." Heb. 10:4.
To what did they
"Wherefore, when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and
offering thou wouldst not, but a body hast thou prepared Me." Heb.
Where were the
ten commandments written under the old covenant?
"And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to Me into the mount, and be
there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments
which I have written; that thou mayest teach them." Ex. 24:12.
What was to be
done with these commandments when the new covenant came in force?
"But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of
Israel: After those days, saith the Lord, I will put My law in their inward
parts, and write it in their hearts." Jer. 31:33 (Heb. 8:8-10).
commandments in the heart, should we also keep Christ and His sufferings in
"By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I
preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you
first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins
according to the Scriptures." 1 Cor. 15:2, 3.
Is it enough
simply to believe in the death of Christ?
"For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also
which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him." 1 Thess. 4:14.
By what act do
we commemorate the resurrection of Christ?
"Buried with Him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with Him through
the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised Him from the dead."
But what should
always precede baptism?
"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized everyone of
you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins." Acts 2:38.
Toward whom must
repentance be exercised?
"And have taught you publicly, and from house to house, testifying both
to the Jews and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God and faith
toward our Lord Jesus Christ." Acts 20:20, 21.
Then by being
baptized, what does one signify to the world?
"For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ, have
put on Christ." Gal. 3:27.
How is the death
of Christ to be commemorated?
"For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the
Lord's death till He come." 1 Cor. 11:26.
When and by whom
was this ordinance instituted?
"The Lord Jesus, the same night in which He was betrayed, took
bread; and when He had given thanks, He brake it, and said, Take, eat; this is
My body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of Me." 1 Cor.
signified by the cup?
"After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped,
saying, This cup is the new testament in My blood: this do ye, as oft as
ye drink it, in remembrance of Me." 1 Cor. 11:25.
What was done by
Christ and the disciples after partaking of the communion?
"And when they had sung a hymn, they
went out into the Mount of Olives." Matt. 26:30.
If one refuses
to obey God, can he be profited by partaking of the communion?
"Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the
Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord." 1
