The Eucharist in Scripture emphasizes the importance of meals shared in faithful fellowship as part of our covenant relationship with God. Old Testament meals and promises provide the foundation for gospel meals with Jesus, culminating in the Last Supper as understood by Paul and in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. 'Breaking bread,' in Acts and the Bread of Life discourse in John are carefully examined. Six sessions including introduction.
